Northwest Christian Writers Renewal with Bill Myers
What Linda is looking for: A great romance, either contemporary, suspense, or historic. “I don’t connect with a lot of nonfiction, but would always be happy to have peek. And any other genre, if well-written, will certainly get my notice. Well-written…well-written…well-written. I’m not choosy as long as it’s…well-written. The most important thing being whether or not I have a place I can take it to. Just because I say no doesn't mean it isn't a great work!”
