"Suzi, thank you so much! What a nice response. I agree with the very real problem (read: discrimination) of these contests that do not allow for author-subsidized books. It's backward and punitive. But with time it will change. I think…"

"Some women do both successfully.  Some small presses are using self publishing venues to publish as well.  You have more control over your product when you self publish.  You do have to market, but friends who have used traditional…"

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!

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`
