Transforming the Writing Life in Discouraging Times

Julie Metz is no stranger to tough times. After her husband of twelve years died abruptly—leaving her alone to care for their young daughter—she discovered that through the years he’d had a series of affairs. Her bestselling debut, Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal, is a testament to transformation. I admire Julie’s…Continue

The Visiting Writer

Quite often, I find myself in a position known as that of the "Visiting Writer."  I have to admit, I have a fondness for the title.  It seems so deliciously appropriate.  What is a writer if not a visitor?  One who arrives, looks around, settles in, makes herself temporarily at home; then tries to find out as much as she can about her surroundings and the characters in them, observing, chatting, teasing, asking, touring, wondering, inserting, pondering; she tries, amazed, eager, hungry, to…Continue

On Chronology and Necessary Abandonment: Working with Letters and Diaries in Creative Nonfiction

The first review of Epistolophilia: Writing the Life of Ona Šimaitė appeared a few days ago. And even though this isn't my first book or review, it's still a wild ride to have strangers reading my work.

In her review of the book, Claire Posner points to a major challenge that I faced…Continue

Titles Dos & Don'ts

Some of you probably saw this on Yahoo today, but I liked it and wanted to link it here.  I know it’s about titles of television shows, but it could be just as easily about book titles.  Enjoy: Picking Titles, Dos & Donts

Talking for Writers

Every so often, I’m asked to speak about pitching to a group of writers.  This is easy for me because I love pitching and I love writers.  I also love making people cry, and that happens, I am not kidding, about sixty percent of the time.  Not everyone, of course – it’s not like I force them to sit through…Continue

On Publishing and Marketing

 

When it comes to marketing, always follow up!

People can be flakey. It's unfortunate, but true. Professionally and personally, not everyone has the ability to stay on top of everything. That's why, when it comes to marketing your book, following up often and multiple times is crucial.

As you promote your book, you're going to reach out to a lot of people, and while many of them may have the best of intentions, life will often get in the way. You might have a great conversation with someone about arranging a review or an event,…Continue

The Initial Theory

 

Hmm. I rather like this one.

A.A. Milne, C.S. Lewis, E.B. White, H.G. Wells, J.K. Rowling, R.L. Stine, T.H. White, V.C. Andrews, W.E.B. duBois . . . .

Why do writers go by their initials?

Many modern women writers know that there is a “literary glass ceiling” in the…Continue

The Significance of Domain Extensions from an SEO Perspective

It can be exciting to create a domain name and then put it into action. While many businesses stick with something basic and professional, many individuals have a little bit more fun when it comes to domain names. The domain name Kikolani is my favorite because it’s easy to remember…Continue

Please Welcome Guest Blogger Kate Kulig, Author of Bloody Murder

While Bloody Murder is definitely on the cozy end of the mystery spectrum, I love how hard-boiled authors like Raymond Chandler could bring their setting into the story so well that the city feels like it's a character. When I started writing, I also wanted to evoke that strong sense of…Continue
