Will Traditional Publishing Retain Its Dominance by Mandating That Its Authors Keep Their Distance from Self-Published Authors?

Posted on July 27, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Imagine my dismay this week to discover that one of the Big Five houses has a policy that bars its authors from endorsing print-on-demand books. Sadly, it’s not surprising. Traditional publishing actively works to position itself against nontraditional publishing yet has no issue whatsoever with scooping up…

Dear She Writes Press,

You’re three this month, and what a fast three years it’s been. You are a success story already, since most new businesses fail within the first year. So congratulations on making it to toddlerhood! We’ve had a wild first three years together. First, you grew up faster than I…

Putting an End to Returns: Utopian Publishing Dream or Eventual Reality?

Posted on July 13, 2015 at 11:00pm 31 Comments

It’s time to blog about returns. Not because it’s a glamorous subject, but because it’s an important piece of the book publishing business that too few authors (and readers) understand.



The fact that books are returnable in the first place is cause for frustration, and it…

What’s the Difference between Genre and Category?

Posted on June 29, 2015 at 9:30pm 14 Comments

A simple look at the definition of “genre” might cause confusion for any writer seeking to understand the difference between genre and category. According to Merriam-Webster, genre is:

“a category of artistic, musical, or literary composition characterized by a particular style,…

3 Good Reasons to Keep Your Book Shorter than 80,000 Words

Posted on June 15, 2015 at 11:00pm 33 Comments

Kill your darlings. It’s a phrase you’ve all heard, but how many of you have been brave enough to be truly ruthless with your own writing, to cut in a big and bold ways when needed? How many of you have written a too-long manuscript and allowed an editor to go in and hack huge swaths of work…

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Brooke!

Thrilled to have an insider's viewpoint in the mix! I bet others are as intrigued as I am about what the publisher reads... :-) No pressure!

Feel free to make book recommendations or cautions, start a discussion, or post links to reviews, articles, or blogs you think that everyone should read! Most important of all, please have fun!

I'm new to group moderating, and am bound to overlook something crucial, so please let me know if there's something I can add and I'll do my best to come through!

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers,

CW

I see on the news today that they've settled the case, but still, the article is well written and explains some intricacies of the publishing industry that people might not otherwise know about. I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Brooke!

I just received this month's Vanity Fair in the mail and had to sit down right away to read an article that increasingly reminded me of one of your blogs from a couple months back: you'd quit your Amazon Prime account, and mentioned the battle between Amazon and Hachette, if memory serves. Well, this article, called The War of the Words might be of some interest to you and other She Writers. It really drives home just how the publishing industry is in a state of limbo, that everyone seems to be holding their breath, knives drawn, frozen and waiting to see what's going to happen next. If you don't read Vanity Fair, it's probably on their website. It sure is an exciting (yet confusing) time to be an unpublished writer!

Take care, CW

Hello Brooke!  I attended your workshop on “scaffolding" in San Miguel last February.  I remembered that you mentioned She Writes but had not really understood what it is until yesterday when I encountered an author who had published with She Writes.  Really looking forward to getting to know this community.

Hey Brooke! Yes, I got the post you sent me. Sorry I mistakenly remembered it as being you, not Kamy, who wrote it. Much appreciated!

Hi Brooke, Trying to find the original post from way back, where you explained why you were going to publish with SheWrites, rather than with one of the big publishing houses who'd offered you a contract. A friend of mine is inquiring about SheWrites Press, and I want to send her that post, because I think it's so helpful when considering these things. Thanks! Melanie Bishop

Hi Brooke! One of my short stories is published in a contest and would really appreciate if you could post my request for support. The contest runs only next few days and the winner is based on the number of FB "Likes" and comments on my story page only. This would take no more than five minutes, I promise. Brooke, please excuse my typing here...We are coming home from our honeymoon and had to sleep in DC airport due to weather. Thank you in advance for any support you can provide.

Please vote for me at www.midlifecollage.com
Friends, I need your FB vote & comment on my story contest page "The Second Time Around." (With the Red High Heel)My pen name is Daya Wakens. Thank you so much for your support!
