Lawrence Kelter, author of the continuing adventures of My Cousin Vinny and the Stephanie Chalice mystery series, tells how he secured the movie tie-in deal for his popular My Cousin Vinny novels Saturday August 17, 11:00 am – 2 pm, at the 9th Annual Writers ‘Buy-Your-Own-Lunch & Book Sale’ in Archdale, NC, sponsored by Murder We Write, the Triad NC Chapter of Sisters in Crime.

   Kelter shares how to become a best-selling author, his own failures and successes, and how he got endorsements from Nelson DeMille, Steve Berry, and William Landay plus stellar reviews from NPR and Publisher's Weekly. Do you have questions? Larry has answers — some of them correct. With more than a million sold books to his credit he’s seen and heard it all, so he might actually be doing something right. He certainly admits to doing plenty wrong. Come and enjoy some plain talk about the writing biz from a member of SEMWA and Murder We Write.
