Countdown to Publication 7 days out: Greyhounds and Prelaunch Strategies

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done to sell your books?

I hadn’t ridden a Greyhound bus since I was 14, traveling across Texas with my friend Elsie to visit my grandmother. But there i was last Sunday, rolling along from Burlington VT to Boston because it was impossible to get to my meeting in Boston any other way today.

I'd squeezed in an appearance at the Burlington Book Festival. I didn’t quite “move a mountain of books” as Ric, the Fair’s ebullient organizer,… Continue

Countdown to Publication 21 days out: SheWrites (and Parties) for Parity

Late one Saturday night last May, eyes bleary and neck sore from straining at the computer screen, I was crashing to finish my line edits. I scoured the manuscript one last time for typos, spelling errors and grammatical faux pas.

In a sentence I'd been over many times before, I noticed that “parity” had somehow been transposed to read “a party.” Now we will surely have a party when women reach parity. But we're not there yet. Which of course is why I… Continue

Countdown to Publication 28 days out: Defining My Terms

Hi SheWriters-

I'm embarrassed to ask, but did you ever forget what's in your own book between when you finished writing it and your first launch event?

I found I needed to reread No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How we Think About Power stem to stern before my first in-person media interview about it yesterday. I literally couldn't remember the chapter titles,… Continue

Countdown to Publication 33 days out: In Which She Needs to Take Her Own Advice

Dear SheWriters.

As I start my Countdown, I’m incredibly grateful to each previous contributor for sharing your experiences generously, honestly, and sometimes humorously. I’ve been lounging around your pool of wisdom, absorbing tips from every column—Hope Edelman’s computer meltdown a year ago through Lori Tharps’ thrill at seeing her first novel on the shelves last week. Now I’m on the high board, about to plunge. Deep breath.

No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think… Continue

Forget PW-Get Your Coven Together and Support Women's Books on Friday the 13th

I like Friday the 13th. Thirteen is a great number. Why? First of all, my birthday is on the 13th, April 13th. Every once in a while it lands on a Friday, and I feel just as lucky then as when it falls on a Tuesday. The gifts are just as much fun to open. Publisher's Weekly has handed us at SheWrites a gift by calling attention to the lack of books by women writers on their Top 10 list.

I also like Friday the 13th because 13 is the number of a coven. Covens are powerful. Every women… Continue

Ride or Die - short essay

Ride or DieJane BinnsSometimes I wonder if I’ll ever settle down again. The most recent stable relationship I had was with my ex-husband and that was fourteen years ago. We were married for twelve years. He died from liposarcoma in 2014. It came on…See More
