"I think you should go ahead and write your book.  One article doesn't mean the topic is covered or exhausted.  It's just the beginning and the Time article really could be looked at as promotion of the topic.  Something that…"

Hearing about last week’s Time Magazine cover story on “The Childfree Life” was one of those moments writers dread. The book idea I’ve been contemplating for a decade is now trending big time, no thanks to…

6 Steps to Republish Your "Out-of-Print" Book

Posted on February 19, 2012 at 8:25am 4 Comments

Last week when I blogged about my decision to republish a book that went out of print, I promised to follow up with a post outlining the various steps required to release a book in an e-version and print-on-demand (POD) format. Jayme Johnson, a publishing consultant, handled that process for me so I…

My Book Went Out of Print, Now What?

Posted on February 11, 2012 at 8:30am 10 Comments

When I learned that my publisher decided to let One Person/Multiple Careers go out of print just a few months after its second printing, I didn't know what to make of it. The book hadn't sold millions of copies, but it had sold thousands, had a loyal following -- and garnered continuous media attention around the world.

About those best books of 2009. . .

Posted on November 10, 2009 at 9:52pm 1 Comment



When Kamy asked us to chime in on the 10 best books we've read this year, I ran to my shelves to see what I'd recently read and realized that I read a lot this year, but lots of what I read was published earlier than 2009. So here's a few standouts from this year. Not hard at all to come up with a heaping handful of titles by women, all worthy of any "best of 2009" list. And of course, many of them are part of the SheWrites… Continue

White Collar/Blue Collar: A Q&A With Jessica DuLong

Posted on November 7, 2009 at 3:25pm 0 Comments

In a black silk blouse with skinny jeans and stylish black boots, Jessica DuLong doesn't look like she spends her days in the bowels of a 78-year-old fireboat. That's because I met her on a day when she was inhabiting her other job, that of the author of a newly released book. A former dotcom executive and freelance journalist, DuLong had an accidental career change after spending some time volunteering on The the John J. Harvey, a retired 1931 New York City fireboat that has become a living… Continue

I think it's pretty flattering, actually.
Kamy is supposed to find a photo of me from her files
until I bite the bullet and get an author photo.
see you Monday!
I don't yet understand about the friend thing--stay tuned.
