Will you help me with a click? I'm rallying an elemental display of power for my book, "Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism," and all you have to do is click to support it through your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. When I get 100 supporters, on 15 October, Thunderclap will push out a mass campaign that will reach thousands of readers, including those on your friends list.
And I will send you soul cookies.
No seriously, I will.
Thank you so much! Here's the link to show your support:

Wrote poems while raising the 3 kids over the last 7 years; so very thrilled to say my first poetry book comes out November 1. I'm celebrating by putting up poetry prompts based on the iconic women who inspired the poems that make up 2/3 of November Butterfly. Yesterday's prompts were for Marilyn Monroe (no girl sets out to die). Today...Sylvia Plath: Sylvia is it words or sleep you miss? up at Transformative Blogging. Join me this month to write.

This week's article at Writing Women's Lives is all about crafting your narrator's emotional truth. It's also about breasts. And, yes, those two topics are more related than you might think! "Crafting Your Narrator's Emotional Truth: A Look at Nora Ephron's ...

Hi All! New member here. Mother of three, including a set of twin boys (yikes!). But they're all grown up now, and I'm enjoying the wonderful experience of being Grandma. 

I write women's fiction and nonfiction. My memoir, Maternal Threads, is all about the mother-daughter experience. Coming soon from High Hill Press.

Interested in getting to know all of you!

@Rhonda, thanks for the support--preparing the family is the new plan...and that's additionally an interesting point--about potential emotional tempests in response to negative reviews...ongoing opportunity to grow, I guess--right? Such a different process: the quiet creation of the work, vs. the public sharing where others get to chime in. I wish us all luck and grace with that part of the journey as it unfolds. Thanks for thinking about it with me.

Glad you loved my post. Your post, and comment below is something writers must think about. In general most books, or any book for that matter, no matter how delicately the work is worded, will evoke different emotions in readers. This is what books do, so preparing your family is a reasonable step.

FYI. I still think about that one author whose family, fans and spouse sort of lost it when they met with some 'negative' reader reactions.
