GuyWriters will welcome local gay novelists Rob Rosen (Queerwolf, Southern Fried), Andrew Demcak (If There is a Heaven Above) and Vincent Meis (Tio Jorge, Eddie’s Desert Rose). The authors will not only read from their latest books, but take part in a Q&A with attendees. They will discuss their writing process, the ideas behind their recent books, and how their novels went from inspiration to words on the page. The guys will also answer questions about publishing and the best strategies for getting your work out to the public. Questions will be taken from the audience.
Whether you are an up-and-coming author or just a fan of these novelists, join GuyWriters for a night of great prose and great novel discussions.
Admission: $5. No one turned away for lack of funds.
