Your warm welcome just graciously killed the out-of-place feeling in my bosom, plus, I had a little fun grappling with pronouncing your last name which almost reads English, even though it looks Russian. Here is how I lost the battle: Star, is he v sky? Couldn't form a concise sentence--something that would have clued me in on how it's pronounced--with it. So I shall call you 'Star, is he the sky?' for now.
Thanks, Jill. Your book looks terrific! I also like "My Very Own Book About Me." It's a workbook along the same lines as your children's book. I use it for my work with children and families in the foster care system. Glad to meet you:)
Thank you so much for your welcoming comments! They mean a lot when you join a new place!! Actually I wonder if you could point me in the right direction for some advice? I am a feature writer but I have been asked to write some press releases for a new hotel and I have no idea how much to charge? Could you or someone on this site help?
Thanks so very much for your welcome! I am working on a first non-fiction book, so I would like to find a writing buddy who would read my Mss before I send it to editor. I am willing to read others' Mss in return.
By the way, I checked your website. Very moved by your book, and impressed by the short video clip. I am a pastor and a doctor of mental health with many years experience working with people sexually (and other abuses) abused in childhood. I applaud you for your tremendous work! Blessings to you, Saundra Taulbee
Thanks for the warm welcome. I was referred here by my friend Chelsea and have to still find my way around a bit. I have been told that I need to establish and online presence as that is something agents and editors are looking for in new authors. I have already connected online with many wonderful people I met at conferences. Sharing our trials and tribulations has been a true gift. For now, I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with Entangled Publishing or Agent Dawn Dawdle as they have both asked to see my ms. I also have a request pending from Penguin Books to send but am holding back in hopes of getting an agent first. Thoughts? Anyone?
"Meg--What is truly inspiring about this recent boost in sales is that this is for a book you published years ago (I know because I just read the sample and bought it). It proves that an author's backlist can still have a lot of life in…"
