OCTOBER 21, 2017

Chris Marie Green will be joining us for a full day of interactive fun and education.

Morning Session: Pied Piping the Muse: An Interactive Music Brainstorming Session

Do you ever find yourself at a creative standstill, needing to “fill the well,” but lacking the inspiration to do so?  By using music as a tool for creation, Chris Marie Green (AKA Crystal Green) will help you to conjure up a story premise or enliven a scene that’s dead on arrival.   You’ll be going into deep brainstorming territory, using a serious focus on music to stimulate your neurons and shake up that creativity, so get ready to roll!

Afternoon Session:  A Brave New World: Options for the Freelance Writer

Are you about to give up on being traditionally published? Are you tired of trying to get your self-published books discovered? Chris Marie Green (AKA Crystal Green) is here to chat about emerging options as a “content provider,” including writing for mobile reading apps, fan community opportunities such as Kindle Worlds, and ghost writing for fiction.

Chris Marie Green

Chris Marie Green and her alter ego Crystal Green have written over eighty works in total. “Chris Marie Green” writes everything from hot contemporary romance to new adult to thrillers to paranormals. Some of her series include Vampire Rogues, Rough and Tumble, Aidan Falls, Final Girls, and Vampire Babylon. RITA nominated “Crystal Green” writes “sweet” romance, namely the Heroes of the West historical Western series for Debra’s Holland’s Montana Sky Kindle Worlds series. She also ghost writes, but don’t ask her what—her lips are sealed!

As both pen names, she tries her best to avoid international incidents whenever she takes a break from her first love, writing, and cheats on it with her other true love, traveling. You can find her on Twitter @ChrisMarieGreen and @CrystalGreenMe, on Facebook, and on Facebook.
