--The Starless Sea: A Novel by Erin Morgenstern sent by Mary-Lane Kamberg.

Veda Boyd Jones: Save the Cat! A novel by Jessica Brody. This book really lays out the formula for every novel, from romance to literary.  

--Lindsey Buroker’s free science fiction books. Sent by S.V. Farnsworth

--Nancy Hartney: The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa is a terrifying novel on loss and today's society. Book is part allegory and part literary thriller. Not interested in a novel? Look for non-fiction work by Wallace Stegner, Ivan Doig, or Larry McMurtry.

            --Gary Sosniecki (new member): Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Graham. Even though my first book will be published in June, I still try to learn from the work of respected true-crime authors like Graham.  

--Jim Hamilton:  Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann (2018).  It’s quite disturbing nonfiction, but a must-read for anyone sympathetic with the mistreatment of Native Americans and appalled by the crimes of 20th century oil barons.

--Linda Runnebaum: I read Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success by K.M. Weiland. This book has a lot of GREAT ideas on how to outline or not outline your novel, giving suggestions you can tweak to your own personality and comfort level. 

--Sandy Jordan: Great Courses send workbooks with their courses. I have several of those courses. My Two favorites are Writing Creative Nonfiction and Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques.
