The 10 Biggest Mistakes New Authors Make

Posted on July 21, 2014 at 8:00pm 5 Comments

Are There Still Pros to Traditional Publishing?

Posted on July 7, 2014 at 8:30am 25 Comments

I get this question—are there still pros to traditional publishing?—fairly often. That writers even ask this question showcases just how far removed traditional publishers are from the sea change that's underway in the world beyond their walls, and that would-be authors feel there…

Posted on June 24, 2014 at 6:00am 17 Comments

Among the many differences between traditional publishing and self-publishing is the turnaround time from book completion to book publication. A common distinction you hear between the two publishing options is that authors have to “hurry up and wait” in traditional publishing,…

Goliath vs Goliath: Why the Amazon v. Hachette Debate Is Really a War of Allegiances between Supports of Traditional vs. Self-Publishing

Posted on June 9, 2014 at 10:30pm 14 Comments

Like anyone who’s tuned into the raging debate going on in publishing right now between Amazon vs. Hachette, I've been doing a lot of reading online. I've seen people coming down hard on Amazon, and down harder on publishers. Because of the space I stand in, pretty solidly between…

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`
