Local Author to Speak at February BDWN Meeting
Schuylkill County native and first-time author Tisha Tolar will speak to the Black Diamond Writers Network on "Writing in Two Genres" on Saturday, February 20 at the Tamaqua Public Library, 20 E. Rairoad St., Tamaqua.
Tisha is a full time writer of non-fiction materials for the Internet market. She makes a living providing web content for a multitude of clients in a variety of industries. She began her online writing career in 2007 by chance after meeting her now business partner, Debbie Dragon, through an online job posting. Forming a working relationship via Instant Message, the two set the stage for the writing e-course, MakeMoneyFromWriting.com which teaches others how to make money writing for the online market. Prior to establishing herself as a freelance writer, Tisha wrote her first full length manuscript in 6 weeks just to see if she could do it. She decided to dust off the manuscript on the advice of her colleagues in 2008, finally self-publishing her debut Gen X in the summer of 2009. She currently is the editor and contributor to several major websites, including Wisebread.com and actively works to promote her novel and her company, Trifecta Strategies.
Gen-X, is the story of Genevieve Xavier, a 20-something gal who is trying to get her big break in the entertainment industry. She eventually does, with a few other adventures along the way. Gen-X is the perfect read for those who like chick lit with a bit of attitude.
