Workshop for aspiring fiction writers at Fayette County Library, Apr. 13


Award winning author Mary Buckham and New York Times best-selling author Dianna Love visit the Fayette County Public Library on Tuesday, Apr. 13 to present a free workshop for aspiring fiction writers. The two-hour program begins at 7 p.m. in the library meeting room.

What makes a great story? Why do some stories fall apart before they get started? Once you have a manuscript that is ready to go, what’s the next step? How has publishing changed in the past year? Mary Buckham and Dianna Love will answer these questions and many more, plus share a sample worksheet from their new book, “Break Into Fiction,” based on their successful national writing workshops. Copies of “Break Into Fiction” will be available for purchase at the event, with proceeds benefiting the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.

Love lives in Peachtree City. Her first book, “Worth Every Risk,” published under the name Dianna Love Snell, won 10 awards including the prestigious RITA Award. Her second release was “Phantom in the Night,” a romantic thriller she co-wrote with best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon as part of the ongoing Bureau of American Defense (BAD) Agency stories. Love’s partnership with Kenyon continues, with two more novels and an upcoming novella so far in the BAD Agency series.

Buckham lives in the state of Washington. Her novels of romantic suspense include “Invisible Recruit” and “The Makeover Mission.” Prior to getting her fiction published, Buckham enjoyed a successful career as an editor and a freelance writer of nonfiction.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administrative complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Georgia Highways 85 and 54. For additional information, please contact the library at 770-461-8841.
