Awhile back, my writing organization split in half because of disagreements and heated debates on what a writing group should be. My group was called Michigan Horror Writers. Well, the other half that left us went off on their own and started their own group, called Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. I commend them on keeping their dreams alive and making their group what appears to be a great success. And yes, they did what our group was not able to. They published their first anthology. I haven't read it yet, but I'm sure it's good, so if you get a chance, check it out:
Good luck, old friends, and best of wishes with Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers.
