Lessons Learned from Author John D. Brown

This month I attended the Romance Writers of America Heart of the West conference in Park City, Utah. I was invited to speak on social networking for writers: Connect with Write Stuff.

John D. Brown gave the Friday evening keynote titled “Lessons on Story from the Hunger Games“. During his 10 lessons, John reminds us that our book, product or service may not be right for everyone. Or, you can’t please all the people all the time.
