Moving from to

Posted on January 18, 2017 at 6:30am 0 Comments

A few months ago I made the move from a website to a website. After three years of attending WordPress meet-ups, the members of the meet-up said I was probably the most prepared person ever to do this switch. While it wasn’t a seamless transition, it was relatively easy. is great for beginners who are afraid of technology and doing something to “break” their website. That was me. No coding is necessary. You pick a theme and a…


In Search of my Lost Motivation

Posted on January 17, 2017 at 1:15pm 0 Comments

New Year’s has come and gone and with it went my motivation. It didn’t help that I came down with some type of intestinal bug the night of January 2, robbing me of two days of productivity. The only benefit of such a bug is that it can help you shed some of those holiday pounds, but even that…


What Do You Do When Your Dreams Are Shattered?

Posted on November 10, 2016 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Hillary Clinton certainly knows about broken dreams. The dream of being the first woman president, one I suspect she held throughout her life, has been shattered after a brutal campaign.

And then there are all of those women and girls who dreamed of a woman president and role model. Those dreams aren’t gone for good as some day it will be realized, just not this year. Hillary has helped to pave the way for a future generation, just as…


Ready, Set, Stop! NaNoWriMo Is What You Make It!

Posted on November 4, 2016 at 6:55am 0 Comments

The main criticism I’ve heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is that it encourages quantity over quality in writing. Writers are spurred on to spew out words as quickly as possible without regard for the value behind the words. And then, thanks to…


Exploring the Kindle Scout Program

Posted on November 2, 2016 at 12:29pm 0 Comments

I recently signed up for a relatively new program on Amazon, Kindle Scout. I had tried a year and a half ago with no success, but decided to give it another try. After all, the book I had submitted back then, Still Dancing, had been about a family dealing with cancer, not exactly a feel…

all my books are already in Audible audio; last one, #22, is in the works. I don't need any more narrators...I'm done. Thanks for the thought, though. Happy New Year!  KMG

July 16


my road to self-publishing was a very long one. I started writing over 42 years ago...of course the only game in town was traditional publishing. Took me 12 years to get that first book published (life got in the way and most of that time was I wasn't actually trying) and then I had 15 books published after that from 1984-2009 with real publishers. I never made much money and hated the way I was always treated by them. The waiting, the discourtesy, royalty statements that came every six months and never made much sense to me, etc. Then in 2010 I went with a small publisher and she brought out all my older out of print books and two new ones, rewritten, new covers and all in eBooks for the very first time. Still I made very little money on all 15 republished books (I get 18% royalties) AND then in 2012 I read J.A. Konrath's blog on the great success he's had with self-publishing on AMAZON KINDLE KDP and I decided to try it with book number 16...I self-published DINOSAUR LAKE in August 2012 (at 70% royalties) and have made more money on that book (and then book #16, 17, 18, 19 and 20). For the first time ever in 2013 I made over $10,000 just on those (at time 4 books) self-published and this year I'm already closing in on that and the year's only half over. I am counting the days until May 2015 when I start getting those other older 15 books of mine from that small publisher (Damnation Books/Eternal Press) back...and I will self-publish every one of them! I can't wait. I WILL NEVER GO WITH A REAL PUBLISHER AGAIN EVER!!! Sure, you must make sure you edit, proofread and get a great cover yourself (pay someone if you need to...but I do it all myself except the covers, Dawne Dominique does all my covers as she's great) . Anything else you'd like to know, just ask me, anytime.   Warmly, Kathryn Meyer Grifffith

Hi Patricia, 

Thanks for the request.  I'll send you a message with more info.

Thank you for your comments! Do you know, I think that when we read it aloud ourselves, we get to "taste" the words, and that informs choices too. Sometimes I asked my main man to read it out too, if I really felt I needed another hearing. But I also LOVE reading aloud!

Hi there -- just wanted to drop by your page and invite you personally (or at least virtually) to our first-ever She Writes Chicago meetup, celebrating our first-anniversary! We are so grateful to the event's organizer, Eileen O'Halloran, for taking a risk and stepping up to host. I hope you will support her and bring yourself and other women who write (no need for them to be members) to the Chicago gathering. At the meetup writers will take part in the She Writes "Book Communion," where attendees arrive with one book, their own or another She Writers', new or gently used, and leave with another book as a meaningfully way to support one another's work. We will also be blowing out a candle and making a wish for our upcoming writing year -- along with She Writers gathering in 16 cities around the country. I hope you will be part of this historic (well, at least kind of cool) occasion, and RSVP now to Eileen here.
