"Oh, a P.S....I believe there is a big book event in November in Portland. The name escapes me, I'm sorry. Word.....something. One word. Trying googling it, see if you can get on a panel there or get a booth!"

[Path to Publication] On Signing Books

Posted on September 9, 2014 at 9:11am 6 Comments

My first book releases from Seal Press in exactly two weeks, and once again I start the day by scanning my to-do list, adding more items than I cross out: reserve a keg for my book launch, decide on room arrangement, respond to emails, set up Facebook events, make a hair trim appointment, answer questions for three different online interviews, upgrade wardrobe, order bookplates, clean the book…

[PATH TO PUBLICATION] That Awkward Promotion Phase

Posted on August 12, 2014 at 9:00am 18 Comments

The memoir I’ve been working on for years comes out at the end of September. I loved the process of writing and revising. Sure, I hit rough patches and moments of despair, but as a writer, I knew how to get through those.

Now with the book at the printer, I need to step into a new role: promoter. I’m grateful…

[PATH TO PUBLICATION] Lessons from Requesting Blurbs

Posted on July 8, 2014 at 8:00am 5 Comments

In May, I posted about my author headshot misadventures. I had fun writing that. What I didn’t reveal then was how playing with that humorous piece helped me face the the next terror of the publishing process: requesting blurbs.…

Forgive me if I've already reached out to you, but I just wanted to add my two cents in support of the amazing Jennifer Lauck's generous offer to host our first-ever Portland She Writes meetup, on Tuesday June 29th, to celebrate our one-year anniversary. While this virtual community is wonderful, I think we all feel that gathering in person is also meaningful and crucial to our well-being, and I hope this will be the first of many such gatherings going forward.

At the anniversary meetups, we are asking attendees to participate in She Writes' Book Communion: bring one book, your own or another She Writers', and leave with another one, a perfect way to get to know each other better and to support one another's work. We will also be blowing out a candle for SW's birthday along with women gathered in 16 cities around the country (and in London!), a historic (or at least pretty darn cool) occasion.

If you can attend, or even if you can't, please RSVP to Jennifer here as a way to thank her for her willingness to step up as host.
