Idaho Writers Guild Literary Lunch 

Presenter: Kate Baray (Cate Lawley)

Topic: Writing Genre Fiction

The life of a full time fiction writer is filled with long walks on the beach, hours of deep contemplation, and days filled with nothing but writing words and more words. Maybe?

This fiction writer's life looks a little different. If you're interested in writing full time as a genre fiction writer, here’s a peek at one path (minus the long walks on the beach).

  1. Why genre fiction?

  2. Iteration is your friend.

  3. The biz-creative balance—finding yours.

  4. The importance of community.

  5. Three mistakes and what I learned from them.

Kate Baray writes page-turning urban fantasy with relatable characters. Her series include Lost Library and Spirelli Paranormal Investigations, and under the pen name Cate Lawley, Vegan Vamp Mysteries and Death Retired Mysteries. Her next cozy mystery release, Fairmont Finds the Body, is scheduled for a January release. Find more information on her website: www.KateBaray.com.

Join us at the Riverside from 11:30 to 1 pm, Tuesday, January 15.
