Founder, She Writes

In the Company of Women.

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 11:30am 11 Comments

Yesterday morning, I took a shuttle and a ferry boat to Whidbey Island--the home, for twenty-five years now, of the Hedgebrook Writers' Colony, a retreat for women writers. I am here for a pre-AWP pow wow with Brooke Warner, the publisher of She…

Kill Your Darlings. All of Them.

Recently JK Rowling made an admission that had Harry Potter fans all atwitter (and a-Twitter, too): Hermione should have ended up with Harry, not Ron. Why didn't the more obvious--and frankly more believable, to my mind--romantic pairing happen?  According to Rowling, it was "for reasons that have very little…

Holiday Book Buying Guide, By...YOU!

Posted on December 17, 2013 at 10:16am 8 Comments

Hi all! I know that the super-organized among us may have already taken care of the holiday shopping, but I am such a book-buying addict that I find I will still buy books for people even when I've already bought somebody (for instance my mom) a gift certificate to Talbot's. (I just bought her…

Please Help The Girls of Girls Write Now Become the Women Writers of Tomorrow

Posted on December 14, 2013 at 1:00pm 3 Comments

Like some of you, I have been outraged, moved, inspired and deeply saddened by the series by Andrea Elliot in The New York Times this week, "Invisible Child." Elliot spent a year with a young girl named Dasani, homeless like 22,000 other children in one of the wealthiest cities on the planet, and told her story. Reading this series, however, also renewed my deep commitment to one of the…

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

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

Wow....39 books. Books are like candy to me, which is why I must be in the middle of about 5 right now, 3 of them I'm reading with my daughter.  Have fun and best of luck with that MS!
