Meeting Room B

Wrapping up National Novel Writing month at the library will be Southern Maryland author F. J. Talley. He is discussing how to finalize your novels, publishing, and next steps for budding writers.

Writing 50,000 words in one month (or any amount of words at all) is a feat to be celebrated. The question is: what do you do next and where do you go from here? F. J. Talley’s first published novel actually began as a NaNoWriMo creation. He was able to complete this book and take the steps needed to get it edited, finalized, and published: steps which he will be sharing with us.

F. J. Talley wrote his first novel-length work in the summer between college and graduate school. This still unpublished work helped to develop his writing style, characterized by dialogue sprinkled with wit and dry humor, even though F. J. doesn’t really have a sense of humor. He has published two novels and F. J.’s work has appeared in anthologies. F. J. is the winner of the 2019 Award for Fiction from the Gulf Coast Writer’s Association. His novel Take Hart, was selected as a finalist in the 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the category of First Novel (70,000-90,000 words).

He is an active member of Sisters in Crime, Crime Writers of Color, and the Maryland Writer’s Association, and lives with family on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

For more information about his works, visit his website or search for his books in our catalog.
