This is a continuation of LT Author Locality Index - restarting so that I can edit the top posts rather than LShelby.

LShelby thought that it would be useful to have an index of where other authors are, so that they maybe have a chance of finding authors that are local to us. Not so much for readers, although we may be interested too, but mostly so that authors can find author friends in their area and maybe arrange to do group promotions/events (which from what she had heard are generally more effective than one author trying to do it alone).

So, if you are an author and are willing to be part of such an index, please post to this thread telling us not exactly where you live, but rather the largest population center(s) you consider to be "local" to you ie, that you can reach to do promotional events and other activities without too much difficulty.

For example, LShelby lives in the village (it's not even a town!) of Jamestown, OH, USA. But her entry, (shown below) lists Columbus and Cincinnati (Jamestown is right smack in the middle between them) as my "local" cities. (Please note that I am British, so if you just say "Boston", I will assume Lincolnshire, England, and for "Washington", Tyne and Wear, England.)

Also, please include a brief list of what genres you write in, because that could be important information for people trying to find participants in promotional events and etc.

If you were included in the previous thread, and want to be included in this one, just let me know.

There is also a Google Map of the locations.
