“Melissa’s workshop “Know Your Industry From the Outside In” was a perfect kickoff workshop for 2014 for LowcountryRWA. She infused her presentation with her down to earth humor to keep the group’s interest. Her segment on RSS feeds gave us an insight into that blurry world and how to use the tool efficiently. Melissa provided us with tips on using Facebook, Twitter, Groups & Loops to help us to deal with social media more efficiently. This workshop is one every writer regardless of their stage of writing and publishing should experience!” – Ann Chaney | Lowcountry Romance Writers
