Keeping Readers Reading
Author Susan Lakin Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 2-4 p.m

Susan LakinHow do you keep readers eager to see more of what you’ve written?
Make it memorable.

Susan Lakin, novelist and writing coach, makes a return visit to Fremont Area Writers on Saturday, Aug. 23, to show how to do just that. Her topic: “Creating Unforgettable Scenes That Really Cook.”

She is the author of fourteen novels – six contemporary, seven in the fantasy/sci-fi genre, and one in historical Western romance. Her most recent book is “Colorado Hope,” due out this summer, written under the pen name of Charlene Whitman. It is the second book in The Front Range Series and is the historical western romance.
In a busy year so far, she has also written “Say What? The Fiction Writer’s Handy Guide to Grammar, Punctuation, and Word Usage.” The book is available in print and ebook format.
Lakin spoke to Fremont Area Writers in 2012, offering tips on how to use cinematic techniques in writing.

The writers group meets on the fourth Saturday of the month, except in July and December, from 2-4 p.m.
Room 120 at DeVry University, 6600 Dumbarton Circle, in Fremont. Meetings are open to the public.

Fremont Area Writers is a branch of the 1,700-member California Writers Club.
