Books By Their Covers -- Have You Dreamed Of Yours?

Posted on September 22, 2014 at 7:30am 10 Comments

TA DA! Last Friday I got the final front and back cover art for the novel I have been working on since October of 2011 (not that anyone is counting), a wondrous journey I have shared with all of you. It's called Wishful Thinking. What do you think??…

Be An Ally: Read in Peace Today For Michael Brown And The People of Ferguson, Missouri

A week and a half ago, I was reading Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" to my boys, and came across this passage about the barbaric "order" of medieval life, which boiled down to who could kill whom with impunity. 

"A master might kill his slave for nothing: for…

Best Author Websites: Let's Make A List!

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 2:30pm 32 Comments

As I slowly begin to turn my ahead away from my manuscript and look out towards the horizon of my pub date (April 2015, which alternately seems ages from now and too soon for me to ever prepare for), one of the first things that clearly needs attending to as I freshen up my public face is...my author website. Please don't look at it right now. If you look at it right now, I will feel not so much like you have seen me naked, but like we were meeting in person for the first time and I had to…

Who Says Bleak House Isn't A Beach Book? (What's On Your Summer Reading List?)

Posted on June 30, 2014 at 3:00pm 14 Comments

I've been reading a lot of my friends' books lately, and it's been a delight. I finally read Orphan Train. (Thank you Christina Baker Kline, for writing something so beautiful--not to mention that the phenomenal success of that book could not have happened to a better person.) I just finished reading…

Love it when someone else understands why I NEED all those books!

Very thought-provoking post and exactly what I needed to read! The hardback/paperback thing is very crazy; I had to insist in my contract that my psychology trade book was NOT first published as a hardback, because as it would also be used by university students, as a hardback it would be ridiculously expensive. My previous text is only bought in hardback by libraries; everyone else always buys the paperback. So of course this is even truer for most fiction. Congratulations on getting a traditional deal for your novel and even more so for doing your pros and cons and deciding on the She Writes Press path! (Imagine if you had decided to go with the big publisher; what would that have signaled to all we She Writes press hopefuls!)

Thanks so much for the reply, Kamy.  Keep up the good work.  :)

39 books.  Okay, you officially have me beat.  I thought I came out with a lot.  Now I just shop quarterly for select paperbacks from my favorite authors, but try to "work the kindle".  LOL

Thanks so much for the friendship request Kamy.  I'm honored, and look forward to learning more from you and supporting your work!  Have a blessed evening!

Seems funny to welcome you, Kamy...but oh well...I'll do it.  Welcome to SWP AUTHORS!

Kamy -

Wow! Congratulations on having so many options!! Self-publish, She Writes or a traditional pub.  That's a dream come true!!  How do I apply to the She Writes Independent Press?

Thanks.  Ann
