Posted on August 18, 2014 at 9:30pm 22 Comments

For those of you who follow publishing news, or who are KDP authors, you know that on August 9, Amazon sent a very bizarre email to all of its KDP customers, which has been dissected best, in my opinion, …

In 2009, when Kamy Wicoff founded SheWrites.com, it was clear that she’d hit a nerve. The response to the community was swift and even a little mind-blowing. Within days there were 1,000…

The 10 Biggest Mistakes New Authors Make

Posted on July 21, 2014 at 8:00pm 12 Comments

I have to preface this post by noting how easy it is to make mistakes when you're on the road to becoming a published author. This is an emotional journey, and ego can sometimes get in the way. Then there's the many details you must hold, which even publishers get wrong from time to time. I've…

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…

5 Reasons to Wait and Slow Down When It Comes to Publishing Your Book

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

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`
