Writing Matters

Watchung Booksellers That’s the title of the series I’m co-hosting at Watchung booksellers in Montclair, NJ. As you know from other posts, I am a huge fan of independent bookstores, and this is one of the best. Passionate staff, all the books you go to look for interspersed with ones you never knew existed (but will love), and a nice, nooky atmosphere for poring over your finds.

Plus, of course, a willingness to host our series, A Dialogue on the Craft & Business of Words. The first panel, on publishing short fiction on line, was SRO on a rainy Friday in July and led to a rousing discussion about new and old media.
We’re hoping for a great turn out when we feature three authors speaking about Alternative Routes to Publishing Your First Novel. Please come by if you’re free on Friday, September 25th at 7 pm to discover some great new books and hear their authors tell the stories behind them.


  1. I’m looking forward to Friday!!

  4. What a lovely bookstore! I wish it were in my area. A lovely website, too, Jenny.

  5. Thank you, Jean. And welcome to the site. As a writer of mysteries yourself, if you ever do make it to the area, please consider appearing–we would love to include you on a panel.

  6. I was in the audience and it was amazing! Great authors, Jenny was wonderful as the moderator, and the cake, divine. . .:) I urge anyone who can come to one of these discussions to do so.
