AUTHOR ROBIN WEAVER DISCUSSES GENRE-HOPPING & CONTESTS
AT NOVEMBER 7 MEETING OF SISTERS IN CRIME
On Thursday, November 7, multi-genre author
Robin Weaver will present, "Genre-Hopping from
Contests to Publication," to our Upstate SC Chapter of Sisters in
Crime. An active member in several Romance Writers of America (RWA) chapters,
Weaver has served as a contest coordinator and judge for the Kiss of Death
chapter’s prestigious Daphne du Maurier awards and has judged entries in many
other contests. She’ll talk about how contests can help authors and/or hurt
them if they’re not seen as just another tool. She’ll also discuss
genre-hopping and blending, including benefits and costs.
A professional computer geek, Weaver started writing extensively when she traded in her ski-boots for flip-flops and moved to the
, area. She was a Golden Heart finalist and winner of the prestigious
Daphne du Maurier contest. Her romantic suspense novel, Blue Ridge Fear—currently
available from the Wild Rose Press—was the winner of the Write Touch contest
and was a finalist in the Winter Rose Published Contest. Forbidden Magic,
published under her pseudonym Genia Avers, was a 2013 Prism finalist. Her
latest genre-hopping endeavor, The Secret Language of Leah Sinclair, a young
adult suspense novel, will be available in late 2013. She has also co-authored
a detective novel, Artifact of Death with FBI agent Robert Drdak. Charlotte, NC
She teaches workshops on point of view and pacing, and is a regular blogger with Romancing the Genres (www.RomancingtheGenres.blogspot.com). She loves Latin dancing, pistachios, Def Leppard, and the five o’clock shadow, not necessarily in that order.
