How Your Body Is a Gateway to Your Creative Expression

Posted on January 26, 2015 at 10:30pm 7 Comments

I read a stunning submission this week from one of my students that had all the elements of good storytelling minus one thing: body sensations. I found myself desperately wanting her to describe the sensations that must have been coming up for her as she wrote about what for her was a…

Memoir Bashing: An Examination of an Emotionally Complex Social Phenomenon

Posted on January 12, 2015 at 11:00pm 53 Comments

As a writing coach and publisher, I’m not supposed to take sides when it comes to genres. I work on all kinds of books—novels, how-to books, essay collections, anthologies, and even poetry collections; but memoir is my true love, and for me the most rewarding of all genres—to edit, to…

52 Things—Ideas for Writers for 2015

Posted on December 29, 2014 at 9:00pm 27 Comments

A couple years ago my friends and I made a list of 52 goals we wanted to accomplish, the equivalent of a bucket list for a year's worth of achievable things. Most of them were simple goals, but measurable. For instance, you couldn’t just write “Read more” as a goal. It had to be…

What Are E-Books Worth?

Posted on December 15, 2014 at 10:30pm 21 Comments

For the past few months, our distributor (Ingram) has been encouraging She Writes Press to price our e-books above $9.99. Because we are distributed by Ingram, we will not be penalized by Amazon for pricing above this price point, and publishers experimenting with higher e-book prices are reporting…

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 It sure is an exciting (yet confusing) time to be an unpublished writer!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!

You are a sweetheart.  Thank you so much for the friend request and for posting the content I requested. 

You have to let me return the favor.  Is there anything I can do for you?

Hi Brooke:

I just joined She Writes March 2012.  I missed your Mighty Bell experience on "Build Your Author Platform."  I know the experience is close now.  Is there any way that I can get access to the content now? :-(

Thanks,

Clene`

"Shelah, I feel for you--how long have you been waiting for them to get back to you? I have only been waiting a week. This process is longer and sloggier than I'd hoped. My reading went quite well last night. "
