A quick tidbit for the people that are wondering how much romance publishers pay to their novelists. You can take a look at the information gathered by Brenda Hiatt. She has posted the results of five years worth of publishing advance and royalty data from published authors (see http://www.brendahiatt.com/id2.html).
Today I came across a wonderful post from Diedre Knight, the founding member of the Knight Agency. Her response to the RWA’s stance on ePublishing is compelling and I hope it will enlighten all of my fans and fellow writers to think outside of the traditional mold. The article called, The Digital Age and RWA: A Call for Change can be found at http://tinyurl.com/nud9zl.
Q. I’m working on a selection of short stories and would like to get them published one day. I hear getting a writing mentor would facilitate stronger writing. Is that true?
Thanks to my wonderful sister I just read an article about romance author Mildred Riley. She’s a 91 years young retired psychiatric nurse that enjoys writing romances featuring African-American characters. The article was written by Judy Feinberg and can be seen at http://tinyurl.com/ml6nqq.
Today is a day of traveling for me. I'll be accessible via computer and BlackBerry to a limited few but I'm trying my best to leave Jersey in Jersey. LOL I'll finish this blog when I arrive at my destination. I've been promised much R&R so I'm excited and I can't wait to enjoy these next couple of weeks.
Great news everyone I just discovered a wonderful site, thanks to romance author Monica Burns. Just one more perk of joining RWA. (You know you budding romance writers want to join too.) Anyway the URL is http://dearauthor.com/wordpress/. It’s a place where they read and review romance books (with a smattering of other genre and non fiction books) from the readers' point of view.
It’s Monday and this weekend gave me plenty of time to reflect on everything that has happen to me this year. I’m very thankful for the progress I’ve made as a woman, mother, friend, administrator and writer but I’m still a work in progress.
Q. What is you favorite food?
My sister forwarded this information to me yesterday, so I thought I would pass it along.
Good morning everyone. I personally feel that today will be a life changing day. Many wonderful things that I hope to come to pass will happen today. I’m typing it into existence because I’m just that confident. Hallelujah!!!
