As always, guests are welcome! We meet for dinner beforehand (at 5:00) at Angelo’s in the banquet room. (Ask for "Eastside Romance Writers.") If you would like to join us for dinner, please email dana@danadelamar.com by Monday, May 13. For more information about dinner, see "Dinner Details" below. (This is so we can give the restaurant an approximate headcount -- if you won't know until the last minute, that's fine -- feel free to join us!)

Many authors are afraid of Goodreads, but they shouldn't be. Goodreads is where the readers are! Learn how to use Goodreads as an author to reach readers the right way and gain reviews and find superfans. This class will cover how Goodreads helps make your books more discoverable, how to get your books listed on Goodreads, how to use the features of the Goodreads author program, how to interact with readers, and how to find groups where you can offer your books for review.

Do not feel obligated to buy dinner at the restaurant. However, since the restaurant is giving us the space for free, it would be nice of us to have dinner there when feasible (no pressure though; we know some folks don't have the time or have budgets to stick to). 

If you can't make it at 5:00 for dinner, you can still order dinner if you get there later; just please be there to place your order by 6:30-6:40 so that we don't interrupt our speaker.

We'd love to see you there! :)
