Helen - Be sure to check all the concurrent events, likes New York Book Week. I'm going to an event at Barnes & Noble on that Tuesday night with people I'm trying to interview for my book. Lots of stuff going on. I'll be in the EDC Educational Services booth (Usborne Books), and will let you know the booth # (in the children's books area).
Helen - It would be great to meet up at BEA! I'm also there for DIY on the 21st. Monday the 23rd, I have to go to Connecticut for a meeting with the Voices of September 11 people (related to my book); will be at Javits the rest of the time. I'm working a booth part of the time, but not a lot. I'd love to find out who else from She Writes will be there,
So glad you've joined ”Why Do You Write & What Is Your Process?”
We have a wonderful group of members. I encourage you to read their profiles and visit my blog that lists the essays members have offered in answering the question that is the name of our group.
I encourage you to consider submitting an essay where you answer the question.
This is a great way to introduce yourself and a good promotional opportunity.
I also post the essay and picture (yours) on my personal blog.
To be featured forward your essay and picture to: email@example.com
Again, I am glad to have you joined us and hope your time here will provide encouragement and helpful information about writing, publishing and all that good stuff.
Hi Helen, I'm actually not a London writer - I live in Essex, but here doesn't seem to be an Essex group up here yet... but of course Im in town a lot, so nice to meet you cyberly, and perhaps see you at some event in town sometime? All best, Clare
Great. I was going to friend-request you as well. (I had to wriggle that ugly compound out of me)
Just a thought - when you're looking at the groups, you might want to check to see how recent activity is, and see what's being discussed. I like being in a variety of groups including a few that aren't my field because a lot of stuff that gets posted can trigger thoughts.
I just saw you're following me on Twitter - I'll now follow you.
I've just come across you and thought I'd say a belated welcome to She Writes. I'd strongly recommend you join several groups. I'm finding inspiration - and motivation - from all the ones I've joined. And the way people share their knowledge and give you support is a rare blessing.
All good wishes

To answer your question: I didn't want the expense of self-publishing for one thing. There is an enormous amount of work for a writer to get their work seen and critiqued and sold WITH a publisher. Three times as much in…"
