You are entirely welcome! What you give returns to you and you and the other foundation members of SW provide so much by way of support, encouragement, inspiration all I can say is Thank You!

Kamy, you are so very welcome!

I believe in telling people the truth, and not swallowing compliments as so many people do. I stop strangers in the grocery store to tell them I like an item of clothing, or their hair, especially their shoes, and they're always delighted--who doesn't love a heartfelt compliment? I think we all need them now and then to counter the pervasive negativity in our news and daily life (people are so angry these days). Waiting till someone is dead to say nice things does nothing for the deceased, so say it now, right when you think of it. You earned my remark by being you, good woman, so keep rockin' it. You talk the talk, and walk the walk, and lead by example with your positivity and all-inclusiveness. These are powerful antidotes to the trend of trolling and bullying and taking our personal misery out on others, and are one of the ways we'll turn the tide toward a nurturing, supportive, and maybe even peaceful society.

Many thanks for your inspiring example (hope I didn't slobber all over you there, but it's the truth).

Have a wonderful day!

Here I am on She Writes. Not surprising, in the wake of such an inspirational evening. I'll be following Wishful Thinking's progress, and of course liking, favoriting, and retweeting the posts and tweets that I see.

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Kamy!

Post when you have the time--no pressure--but especially when you find a book that you think everyone needs to read (particularly if it comes from one of our She Writes sisters or brothers!), links to tasty reviews or blogs about books, or something that was helpful in the research stage--really anything about literature goes! This group is all-included, so everyone can play! 

I'm new to this moderator game, and only 8 months into the world of social networking, so I'm bound to overlook something or make a faux pas--please feel free to give me a nudge if there's something I can do to make the group better, or whatever you might think of that I've missed. Most important, have fun!

Also, many, many thanks for bringing a whack of folks with you to this group! That ask really paid off!

May you have the greatest luck on this new journey with Wishful Thinking!

Hi, Kamy: I posted about Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech last night calling for wage equity!  Woo Hoo!  Yvette

Thanks for the friend request, Kamy!  How old are your kids?  My grandson is four.  To me, he is like a new book being written.  I had two daughters and boys are a whole new world!  My girls would sit and color, play with their dolls, be quite in the library...  He is like a little tornado, ripping and running and karate-chopping!  But I love this "new book" that is being written before my eyes. He is a joy; a handful, but a joy and I love him so.

That's wonderful. It sounds like a good program.

Sure thing, Kamy.  It sounds like a wonderful program.  We have something similar in Austin called Badgerdog for high schoolers and Badgerpup for elementary school kids.  It's not targeting girls, but kids from at-risk homes.  Very inspiring to hear their stories.

It's great that you're involved with them.  I'm sure you're making a difference.

Thanks for the invite. Your blog is really a welcome addition to my writing universe.

Love it when someone else understands why I NEED all those books!

Very thought-provoking post and exactly what I needed to read! The hardback/paperback thing is very crazy; I had to insist in my contract that my psychology trade book was NOT first published as a hardback, because as it would also be used by university students, as a hardback it would be ridiculously expensive. My previous text is only bought in hardback by libraries; everyone else always buys the paperback. So of course this is even truer for most fiction. Congratulations on getting a traditional deal for your novel and even more so for doing your pros and cons and deciding on the She Writes Press path! (Imagine if you had decided to go with the big publisher; what would that have signaled to all we She Writes press hopefuls!)

Thanks so much for the reply, Kamy.  Keep up the good work.  :)

39 books.  Okay, you officially have me beat.  I thought I came out with a lot.  Now I just shop quarterly for select paperbacks from my favorite authors, but try to "work the kindle".  LOL

Thanks so much for the friendship request Kamy.  I'm honored, and look forward to learning more from you and supporting your work!  Have a blessed evening!

Thanks so much for the invite.

I really am looking forward to being part of the 'She writes' community, I believe that I will learn a lot here also.

Thanks for welcome!

Seems funny to welcome you, Kamy...but oh well...I'll do it.  Welcome to SWP AUTHORS!

Kamy -

Wow! Congratulations on having so many options!! Self-publish, She Writes or a traditional pub.  That's a dream come true!!  How do I apply to the She Writes Independent Press?

Thanks.  Ann
