OUR NEXT MEETING

July 24, 2018 — NOTE CHANGE OF DATE DUE TO NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Gail Dayton:

Dialogue as Action

Dialogue is one of the building blocks of fiction, but too often it’s not used as effectively as it could be. Gail Dayton will look at thinking about dialogue in a new way–as action, rather than simply talking. We’ll talk about using dialogue as the powerful tool it should be, so that the things your characters say could leave them shaking, along with your readers.
Bio: Gail Dayton wrote her first story (about a lost cat) in 5th grade and has been writing ever since. She was a RITA finalist for Best First Book for her Silhouette Desire, Hide-and-Sheikh. She published an award winning epic romantic fantasy series with Luna and Juno, and two steampunk romance books with Tor Books, and a third as an e-book. She has since released several contemporary and fantasy romances, a historical (non-fantasy) romance novella and a “soft release” YA fantasy.
Gail needs to write much more than she does, but she spends a lot of time taking care of her
mom and those twin grandbabies.
