The Blank Screen: If You Don't Have Anything to Blog About, Should You Blog Anyway?

Posted on November 18, 2014 at 1:00pm 3 Comments

There is the blank page. We all know about that one. The void all intrepid writers face when we are about to begin a full-length writing project, the intimidating primordial blankness which, at the start, appears as insurmountable and pitiless as The Wall in Game of Thrones. Then there is the blank screen, which,…

Product Placement in Books--What Do You Think?

Posted on November 4, 2014 at 7:30pm 25 Comments

This is less a blog post than an invitation to a discussion--a salon online, if you will. Imagine we are all gathered around a long candlelit dinner table together, or reclining on chaises in my Parisian living room. (You will definitely have to use your imagination, since my kitchen table is only big enough…

What Makes A Book A Success?

Posted on October 21, 2014 at 11:00am 39 Comments

A year after my first book came out, a then-friend said to me, over dinner at an Italian restaurant on a cold winter night: "Your book was a failure." My friend didn't say it harshly--though perhaps it's no surprise that we are not friends anymore. He said it matter-of-factly, as in, the things you hoped for when…

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!)

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

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
