Introducing...Wishful Thinking, Chapter One.

Posted on January 15, 2015 at 2:30pm 10 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…

Five Things I Learned About Writing in 2014

Posted on December 18, 2014 at 11:00am 18 Comments

1) Revision! Revision! (Sing to the tune of "Tradition" from Fiddler on the Roof.) In December of 2013, my dear friend and editor of many years Amy Fox gave me notes on a manuscript I thought only needed polishing. As it turns out, it needed to be cut by 25,000 words.…

It's 3AM. Do You Know Where Your Blurbs Are?

Posted on December 4, 2014 at 10:30am 23 Comments

I woke up this morning at 3AM, and the moment my brain achieved consciousness, I thought, "Blurbs!" and then I thought, "Readings!" and then I thought, "Reviews!" and then I thought, "I'm doing everything wrong and nobody is ever going to read this book and even though it's only December 4th and my book…

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.  :)

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!
