Are you an early bird writer? Find your kindred spirits on Twitter at the #5amwritersclub. The group was started by one of my most prolific author clients, Khris Chess, who writes Young Adult (YA) novels. The #5amwritersclub has come into its own this week as a top trend on Twitter.

Members Book Page

If you look at the members book page, the books have all disappeared. This is not something I have done, but, as I have been told, an adjustment on the ning. site. I have been told to wait till this is fixed and the books will come back. So please be patient.
