Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
I'm in the process of querying for my first novel, "Camelot & Vine."
I wrote the column, "Act as If" for NowCasting.com. My contributions still run monthly in their ActorsInk newsletter.
My story, "Things," is in the Adams Media collection, "A Cup of Comfort for Christmas."
I've got two short stories (flash fiction) online at http://rosecitysisters.blogspot.com/
I am nice and supportive. Oh! plus on my blog, Pasadena Daily Photo (640 some-odd followers), I host guest author posts featuring San Gabriel Valley (California) authors. If you are one and you'd like to contribute, please contact me!
"I've been out and now I'm back. Love this ongoing discussion. Julie, I don't know everything, but the first thing is "say yes." I started before publication and have:
written book reviews, (they always want your bio, where…"
"Keri, I can't answer your questions but I'll be interested to read the responses you get. I think of Margaret Atwood as a role model. She's been adventurous with new forms, and that keeps her in the game."
"Happy Tuesday, everyone! For the month of May, I'm offering a Goodreads Giveaway of my novel, Camelot & Vine. A brief description to give you an idea:
Lying is second nature to Casey Clemens, whether she's hawking cheap products on…"
"A little of both, Ruth. My book hasn't been online for very long, and I wanted to give a few Nook owners a chance to get it (they asked). I will do KDP select at some point soon. I can always do it more than once, so although I'm making…"
"I haven't tried KDP yet myself, but I will. Konrath swears by it, but he's well known. Also, and I think this is key: he has a lot of books available online. This means if you like the one you downloaded for free, when you go back to see…"
"I've been reading J.A. Konrath's blog. http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/
Konrath is no-nonsense, defiant, a brat. But the guy knows what he's talking about and he's generous with advice based on his numbers and experience. Because…"
"Thanks, Kathleen. I can't remember if I announced it here; I've announced it so many places. But for those who read ebooks there are a lot of books on special at Smashwords this week (through the 9th), including Kelly's and mine…"
"I think the memoir requires as much material as it takes to tell the story.
Glad I could help! I'm here every night, folks.
But truly, I think Sophie is right, those vignettes give us character and setting. Another thing they give us is…"
"I don't suppose we can all expect to have skyrocketing sales after giveaways, but if your sales went up that's an indication that the giveaway was useful.
And excellent choice in checking Peter Mayle's listing! That's going to…"
"I enjoyed your post, Mark.
My once 600 page book is now around 300, thanks to
1. Letting the book sit, then going back in with some distance
2. Advice from Beta readers who are also writing professionals
3. Letting the book sit some more
"Mary, all you need for downloading Kindle books is a Kindle. I don't know much about the device itself, but you can get Kindle as a free app on most computers. I have one on my iPhone and on both my desktop and laptop Macs. Pretty sure you can…"
I meant when the anime character's face becomes distorted because she is embarrassed or upset and you have to say "gaa" or something like that. It's your voice, not an engineered sound, and I wondered what the script said. My first anime series was Samurai Champloo, which had natural looking characters, except for one, and I expanded out into other series (for research) and was fascinated by the facial templates for embarrassment, rage, sorrow, fear, etc.
While hiking, do you carry your camera? What camera do you use...do you go digital or 35mm? I love your portfolio on redbubble and have just tweeted it!
An actress...you've got courage...moxie. (Love that piece in Lost In Yonkers...the movie...where Richard Dreyfuss explains moxie! Would love to see the play.)
I've also just completed my first novel, Blue Psyche, but have just about decided to publish/market it myself because, from what I hear, you must market your work, anyway. Your Camelot & Vine sounds fascinating! I like your protagonist's name, Casey Clemens - I go by my last name as a nickname. ;^ )
"Cynthia, Just waving hello. If you’re looking for places to connect here, we’d love to have you join us in the Novelists (Struggling or Not) group. I hope you’re enjoying exploring SheWrites, and best of luck with your…"
