How Not to Get Sued for Your Memoir

Posted on September 17, 2016 at 3:45pm 17 Comments

Because I host regular free webinars about memoir writing, I’m in contact most months with hundreds of memoir writers. And even though the topics I teach typically have nothing to do with libel or slander or misrepresentation, people’s questions always go…

The Best Writing Advice Changes Everything

Posted on September 2, 2016 at 9:30am 12 Comments

This summer I was invited to the Mendocino Writers Conference, where at the opening reception in downtown Mendocino (where one can’t help but evoke Jessica Fletcher of Murder, She Wrote) each presenter was asked to come to the microphone to share their best piece of writing advice. I was…

An Author’s Guide to Praise and Endorsement Best Practices

Posted on August 12, 2016 at 10:30am 6 Comments



I get an inordinate number of questions about what the industry fondly calls “blurbs,” and here I attempt to cover them all with a detailed list of how authors can approach soliciting and choosing, and everything in between. In today’s book marketplace, blurbs still matter to publishers and the industry at large, in part because they’re a bit of a holdover from a bygone era and publishing is big on tradition, and in part because household names…

Are You Writing a Hybrid Book?

Posted on July 14, 2016 at 3:30pm 14 Comments

Hybrid concepts are all the rage in book publishing. She Writes Press is a hybrid press. There are hybrid authors (authors who publish traditionally and nontraditionally); hybrid publishing arrangements (where publishers and authors split costs and royalties in ways that work outside the traditional paradigm); and hybrid books (which cross or blend genres).

I first…

"Hi Wanda, no, this wouldn't be considered hybrid. A hybrid cannot be fiction and memoir because those are two distinct categories and booksellers do not like mixing them. I think only Jeannette Walls could get away with writing a…"

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!
