Meeting--- Dallas MWA next meeting Saturday, Feb 1, 2014

Years ago when I was first starting out and reading mystery reviews in the Dallas Morning News that got details wrong such as saying the killer used a knife instead of the gun in the book as well as reviews that gave away the ending among other problems, I tried to get in there. Now that experience is clearly not an issue, I am told they are eliminating reviewers and cutting coverage. Could be an interesting meeting.

February 1, 2014 - Joy Tipping: "Getting Book Reviews from Inundated Editors."
