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!
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.
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.
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!)
