Kamy Wicoff's next book, Wishful Thinking, pubs soon. Here's what she's learned along the way.
Remembering the unkind words of former teachers.
Going over all the disappointments you’ve suffered.
Telling yourself you don’t know how to write or that you’ll never get published.
If you have found yourself doing any of the above (and, let’s face it, you have), then you have been visited by the Demon Editor: a grotesque being who lurks in the dark corners of the writer’s mind and exists for the sole purpose of undermining your writing.
The Demon Editor is a shapeshifter: It takes many forms. It is tenacious and sneaky, with an insatiable appetite for misery, and it feeds on writers’…Continue
I love hearing great speakers present a well-crafted message. I especially love presentations when the speaker is an author whose books I've read. Even if we've never met, it feels as if we have a connection. I’m eager to hear my favorite authors speak because their message has already intrigued, entertained, or inspired me.
So when I learned that Lysa TerKeurst was scheduled to speak at an event about an hour down the road, I knew I would be there. TerKeurst is the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the author of three New York Times bestsellers—and sixteen other books. Of all nineteen of her books, I’ve read one. And I only read that one last fall when Proverbs 31 did an online Bible study using The Best Yes as a study guide. She’d written nineteen books in a genre that I enjoy…Continue
Whenever possible, I suggest making a concerted effort to have at least one copy of your book with you wherever you go. You never know when you're going to come across a potential reader, so it's best to be prepared. I've sold (and given away) many books over the years simply because I had a copy with me. The reality is that most people will go their entire lives without meeting an author, so when it happens, they are often excited to buy a signed copy. Why? Because even if they don't plan to read it, having a personalized autographed copy of a book is cool! And who knows? Maybe they will read it, love it, write a glowing review about it on Amazon and Goodreads, then tell their friends to read it, or even buy copies for their friends as gifts.…Continue
The night before my official pub date, I joined She Writes Press authors Hollye Dexter and Jo Ivester for the first official event of my book tour and of the She Writes Press tour at large. We were in Phoenix, home of SparkPoint Studio (the parent company of She Writes Press), at the big, bustling, fabulous indie bookstore Changing Hands. The three of us read from our books, but we also engaged in a conversation about publishing and writing, which was great. It is the plan to do this at every She Writes Press event: it's all about our community. (Everything good and successful I've ever done in my life has been focused on community, and I don't want this tour to be any different!) We will look for She Writes members in our audiences and use this as an opportunity to help you meet locally in the cities we are visiting. I hope you will join…Continue
