She Writes in California

It would be great to meet other aspiring writers, either journalists, bloggers or novelists. If we have enough people, maybe we can even hold group meetings and get to know each other even more.

Early New Year's surprise:

After the London Book Festival sent me two emails addressed to "Dear Entrant," I thought I hadn't placed and decided I should stop entering contests.  Today, I checked the list of winners anyway and discovered that Tasting Home had won first place in Autobiography and Biography! There are some lessons here. Always read the fine print! Don't be too easily discouraged. http://londonbookfestival.com/portal/content.asp?contentid=606

Dave Letterman made a guest appearance on at my blog today. He and I drafted the top ten reasons (excuses) a writer should’t write. What are your excuses, I mean reasons that keep you from doing something you love? http://www.brendamoguez.com/writers-process/the-top-ten-reasons-not...

I did, but for the most part I found calling or visiting in person worked WAY better. Very few people responded to my emails, but almost everyone I visited took books on consignment or bought them.

Did you email all the bookstores in your area? Did you visit any of them?

Comment by Jennifer Richardson on November 25, 2013 at 7:00pm

Hi Rossandra,

the bookstore called me. I'm not quite sure how they got my number, but think it was either:

1) Me emailing them earlier this year asking them to carry my book

2) Registering for indies first http://www.bookweb.org/indies-first, which is helping team up authors and bookstores for small business Sat. It's a great opportunity for authors! Check it out.
