Haunted Dahlonega – 2014 Walking Tours Have Begun

The 2014 script, which is full of NEW stories of mysterious encounters and paranormal phenomena, was created by yours truly…and I’ll be hosting most of the tour dates:Haunted Dahlonega Tour PosterThis project is a labor of love. Everyone involved in the tour production is a volunteer and 100% of the ticket sales go to support the Friends of the Dahlonega Gold Museum in their mission to promote, support, improve and preserve the Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site.

We had a fantastic group for the first tour. It was so much fun, I can hardly wait for next Saturday to do it all again!

I will be posting about this event, my research in creating the script and maybe even sharing a few ghostly tidbits that didn’t get included in the final cut throughout September and October. Stay tuned!

What is North Georgia Authors Guild?

I’m starting a professional group for published authors in the Dahlonega/North Georgia area. Here’s the article that ran in The Dahlonega Nugget:

North Georgia Authors Guild, a newly formed group of published, professional authors, has its second meeting upstairs at Starbucks at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8.  Discussion will include how to navigate the complex world of writing, publishing and especially successful marketing of books.

Traditional and independent authors are welcome. The group will be sharing successes as well as featuring regional authors during its regular programs.

I love to talk about the art of writing, the craft of writing and even the dreamy fantasies of writing. That said, crass as it may sound, if an author doesn’t learn and grow the BUSINESS of writing, then writing is just a hobby…and a very expensive hobby at that!Money in Typewriterphoto credit: jessamyn via photopin cc
