In 2008, as my agent started sending my memoir out to editors, Lehman Brothers closed up shop and so the Great Recession began. Homeowners, wannabe homeowners and the middle- and lower-classes were sent on a terrible downslide.
Publishing is about money and when money disappears, fear sets in. Once that shaking starts, endings begin. Editors left publishing in droves, either being sent on their way, or choosing the role of seller over buyer by hanging out a new shingle: "Literary Agent." Unknown writers flailed, banged their heads against walls, and waited.…Continue
“It helps if they are dead,” say many memoirists when asked about including family members in their work. Clearly, memoir is an undertaker’s profession: how to present the person so they look as natural as they did in life? Consider, for example, preparing the late Mickey Easterling, the infamous Grande Dame of New Orleans, for her big finale. “My goal,” said her wardrobe consultant and cosmetician, “was to make her look even prettier than she was in real life.” So there she sits, a well-cosseted Mickey, presiding over her own memorial party perched on a raised wrought iron bench wearing a bright rose-flowered dress, outrageous hat, fuchsia pink feather boa, a cigarette holder and champagne flute clutched in the bejeweled claws of her red fingernail painted hands, a diamond-studded “Bitch”…Continue
Including hyperlinks in your marketing materials is a great way to send people to your Amazon page, or your website, or your Facebook page, or anywhere you want them to go. But the actual links can be long and quite unsightly, so I suggest using the text function to make them look clean, pretty and professional.

However, I often receive e-mails from authors that include crazy long links. To protect the guilty, I'm…Continue
I just got back from ten days in Italy. It was, in a word, amazing. And that’s not even a very good word. As I prepared to be away from my daily life for ten days, I considered what to do about my writing. I have a small, leather travel journal that I always pack with me, but a quick flip through the pages of past trips gives evidence that I don’t seek it out very frequently. I’m supposed to be promoting my recently published book via updates and newsy items on my virtual, digital platform, but I decided that I would have to take a break from it while I was gone (I think my publisher just fainted as I wrote that). I was going on vacation--it would be okay if I took a break to enjoy some time off and visit friends and relatives whom I hadn’t seen in over three years, right?
However, when one is a…Continue

Life is too short for that. When you refuse to let things go you only hurt yourself. Dredging up all those old feelings certainly can’t make you feel good; what they do make you feel is bad, sluggish,…
