My new book (Wait for the Rain) came out this week-- I'm so excited! On Saturday evening I had a launch party, and it didn't cost me a thing. All I did was ask the manager of a local bar if I could have an area to sell and sign books for a couple hours in exchange for bringing in paying customers, and he quickly agreed. He was happy to have the business-- especially on an evening that was unfortunately smothered in a blizzard! I was touched that so many friends and fans made it out despite the horrible weather.
Here are a couple photos of the event. I was thrilled that SheWrites founder Kamy Wicoff came by to say hello! Btw I've read her upcoming debut novel,…Continue
Publishing has never been easier than it is these days, and it's because of the growing popularity (and acceptance) of self publishing. But just because things have gotten easier, it doesn’t mean things have gotten better.
There’s still a lot of subpar work being produced and published. Sometimes it’s the author’s lack of writing skill that is to blame, but sometimes the failure comes during the production process.
Generally speaking, the process when it comes to publishing is: write, edit, proof, publish—where the last part consists of things like cover, typesetting, etc. But a lot of times I have encountered authors who have some deadline, which they have set for whatever reason, and they simply must get their book out by then. Usually it’s a date where the author wants…Continue
Typically when I read for fun, I read fiction. I have always been this way. I love information, so it seems like I should be naturally drawn to nonfiction, but that’s never been the case. I like the idea of made-up worlds, and I like that things generally work out in a positive way in those worlds. Nonfiction is not always so positive because, well, it’s real, and you can often predict the ending. That said, I’ve recently been reading two memoirs, which is new for me. Correction: I’m reading one and listening to another. For reading, Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl. For listening, Amy Poehler’s Yes Please. I recommend both for either listening or reading, though Amy’s audiobook includes guest appearances (no Tina Fey yet) and is really not to be missed. …Continue
Last year, an old friend called me out of the blue. It had been ages since we'd talked, so I was thrilled to hear from him. He said he'd decided to write a novel and wanted to bounce the premise off me. Knowing how funny this guy is, I couldn't wait to hear his idea - and I wasn't disappointed. What he had in mind was hilarious. I told him as much, wished him the best, and said to keep me posted.
I emailed him on his birthday a couple months ago and asked how the novel was…

I’ve been self-publishing ebooks since 2002. My first one didn’t even have a cover. It was just a simple pdf file of information I uploaded to my website at the time. Learn more about that here.
How much did it cost me to publish that first book? Zero dollars! Yep, absolutely nothing. Now, over a dozen years and almost 100 ebooks later, I still spend very little to…
I never dreamed of writing a memoir. I just always had words in me. When I was seven years old I started to write poems, and the words somehow seemed stronger scribbled in my small notebook. In middle school my teacher constantly reminded me: “Speak up, Lene! We can’t hear what…
