In Praise of Indies: They're Baaaaack!

Posted on February 23, 2015 at 10:30am 7 Comments

From the day of She Writes' launch--June 29th, 2009--Lori A. May has been here. She was one of the first people to join who I didn't already know personally, and it has been such a pleasure to get to know her here and in our correspondence since then. (She is the founder of the…

Introducing...Wishful Thinking, Chapter One.

Posted on January 15, 2015 at 2:30pm 13 Comments

For the past two and a half years, I've been sharing my thoughts, fears, questions, and a few (very few?) answers, as I have worked to complete my first novel at the ripe old age of forty-two. It has been so wonderful, and truly life-saving, at times, to have this community to turn to in a creative endeavor that…

Hi, Kamy: I posted about Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech last night calling for wage equity!  Woo Hoo!  Yvette

Thanks for the friend request, Kamy!  How old are your kids?  My grandson is four.  To me, he is like a new book being written.  I had two daughters and boys are a whole new world!  My girls would sit and color, play with their dolls, be quite in the library...  He is like a little tornado, ripping and running and karate-chopping!  But I love this "new book" that is being written before my eyes. He is a joy; a handful, but a joy and I love him so.

That's wonderful. It sounds like a good program.

Sure thing, Kamy.  It sounds like a wonderful program.  We have something similar in Austin called Badgerdog for high schoolers and Badgerpup for elementary school kids.  It's not targeting girls, but kids from at-risk homes.  Very inspiring to hear their stories.

It's great that you're involved with them.  I'm sure you're making a difference.
Regards,
Jo

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.  :)

At 6:58pm on November 12, 2013, Kandie Dfw said…

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

At 6:57pm on November 12, 2013, Kandie Dfw said…

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!
