Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'Memoir Bashing: An Examination of an Emotionally Complex Social Phenomenon'
"Very helpful, Brooke!  Right now I'm at the agent-querying stage.  Linda Joy* suggested I was categorizing my book too broadly in my proposal and I should narrow it to attract the right agent.  I was providing too many…"

"Brooke, I'd really appreciate your expertise on how to figure out where in the bookstore a memoir should be placed.  Current events?  Travel writing?  My book, like so many memoirs, is a hybrid -- a journalistic memoir about my…"

"Got it!  How have I been missing this all this time????  Thanks so much, Janay. Have you written about Linked In?  I've got this, uh, network that I'm clueless about.... You just gave me another reason to look forward to…"

"Ok, Janay, great explanation! I think I get it.  So, I'm writing a book about #IraqiRefugees.  So, if others are searching for info about Iraqi refugees, they'd find this post along with others?  It's almost like…"

Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'Don't Hate on #Hashtags'
"Helpful!  But I'm a Luddite and still confused.  Are hashtags about improving odds of being found in google searches?  Or are they about driving traffic somewhere?  And, if the latter, how to I link to my web site? In the…"

"Tracy, your blog is great!  Just signed up for updates.  Your story is incredible and I look forward to reading your book in June. What's the easiest way to communicate with you in a private forum?  I couldn't find an email…"

"<<So be aware, and next time you don’t like a memoir, ask yourself why. Is it just a bad book, worthy of your disdain, or does it maybe trigger in you something you’re just not ready to face? >> Perfect line, Brooke.  I…"

"Great post, Tracy.  I look forward to following your book's path to publication!  Very smart idea to start a reading series to build your platform. By the way, I intend to travel to Japan in Aug for a writing project -- likely flying…"

Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'The One Resolution to Make for 2015'
"Jill, great post!  Love this line:  Instead of coming up with a list of resolutions for the New Year, think of one single way you can practice self acceptance.  Gonna have to meditate on that one...  Just signed up for your…"

"Great list, Brooke, and congratulations on your partnership with SparkPoint Studio!  Their web site is fabulous. I'm curious about #26:  How do I "map" a book?  Have you written about this before and I missed it? Thanks…"

"  <<Regardless, this is more about perception and how our culture values e-books, which was the point of this piece. I think it's pretty clear that the vast majority of readers has been trained to set expectations for ebook pricing…"

Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'What Are E-Books Worth?'
"Brooke, thanks for taking the time to clarify...Sounds like asking a potential publisher what their negotiated agreements are with retailers -- esp for ebooks, where there's a wide commission range -- is important.  I haven't…"

Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'What Are E-Books Worth?'
"I don't mean to sound dense, Brooke, but I'm just not getting the math.  And I'm not trying to challenge you on your position about Amazon, just trying to understand it better. So Amazon takes 50% of ebook profits and the…"

Kelly Hayes-Raitt commented on the blog post 'What Are E-Books Worth?'
"<<We pay them co-op money and a merchandising fee. What's left for the publisher and the author to split is actually really sad, and our breakdown is on a 20% to us and 80% to the author. In traditional publishing it's 25% to the…"

"What a great blog, Brooke, and an interesting comment from Katherine.  I'm by far no expert and am always tying to get my head around ebooks and their pricing.  Here are points made by other writers that have stuck with me: • A…"
