July: An Historical Month

The O.C. Writers Monthly Update

Just like our characters, we all have a backstory. Whether we like it or not, that story informs our writing life and our writing. This month we’re going to untangle a bit of the mystery of our history.

Greta will be discussing how her personal history has impacted her marketing and Megan will give a brief history of independent publishing. Plus, award-winning regency romance author Alina K. Field will be giving us her tips and tricks for writing historical fiction, and The Creaky Hinge team will discuss the┬áhistory of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

And let’s not forget about our recurring feature, Back & Forth with Sven and NEVS. I have no idea what they’re up to this month, but I’m sure it will be interesting. So stay tuned!

Next Month

We’ll be talking about one of our favorite topics: setting. How do you incorporate setting into your work? What makes a great setting? Did you summer vacation or other travels inspire your work? Submit your articles to Megan@OCWriters.Network by Saturday, July 28th.
