Chatting with Author Tom Monteleone

Last Saturday, the 20th Annual Maryland Writers Conference went well. More than a hundred writers at all levels—from beginners to seasoned experts—joined together to share and learn.

My own session went well. I participated in a panel discussion on marketing your writing. Joining me were authors Austin Camacho, Diane Marquette, and Peter Abresch. We provided tips on our own unique ways of marketing our writing to new audiences—through blogs, articles, book signings, book readings, conferences, and more.

The highlight of the conference was the keynote address by author Thomas F. Montelone. Tom is the author of thirty-six books and has published more than 100 stories. He’s also the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing a Novel.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Tom over coffee during the conference for about half an hour. But I didn’t conduct an interview since I knew that there were already two great ones out there by fellow conference-goers.
