I apologize for the disappearing act- I was waiting to be able to announce two pieces of good news! Still waiting on one, but in the meantime I am so happy to announce that The Talkers are Talking received an Honorable Mention in the Launch Pad Competition! I had submitted the first 50 pages of my original (very rough) draft for the feedback option of the contest- I have heard so many opposing ideas about that chunk that I wanted to see what the professionals would say as I come to final edits....and somehow that rough first draft made its way to the final list! So- will be in touch if anything comes of it. In the meantime, you can check it out and all of the other amazing projects here:
As for the project itself - we are getting there I promise! Waiting on a few more developmental edits and then I will be moving to what I hope to be the final draft! I apologize for how long it’s taking, but I really do want to make sure the final version is the best it can be. Thank you as always for your support and keep an eye out for some more exciting news in the next few weeks!
Thanks so much and Happy Halloween!
Hello everyone!Just wanted to let you know that I am in full writing mode! I have been able to devote 2 to 3 full days a week to writing and am looking to get my final draft to Inkshares and Girl Friday Production by June 1st latest. According to average production time from there, the publish date would be somewhere in September or October! Thank you so much again for making this possible.
Next, I would love to send you all along to a project that a friend is spearheading and I will be contributing to. I am reaching out to all of my writer/reader friends and thought many people on Inkshares might be interested too. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Thanks again and I hope you are all well!
I'm so excited to announce that The Talkers are Talking has met its Quill goal and will become a part of the collection!! I just want to say thank you to all of you lovely, wonderful, generous and supportive readers. I couldn't have done it without you, and now as I start the long road to publication, I promise to do whatever it takes to make Talkers the best it can be. More updates to follow (also in regards to Breaking the Bechdel Syndicate- hell yea people, we are really making a formidable group against manic pixie dream girls and other depth-less female character tropes), but for now, thank you, thank you.
Hello everyone!! Just wanted to let you know that for 10 bucks a month (or two lattes) you can help indie authors get their book published (and you get a copy of each book too!) With encouragement from some of the wonderful people at Inkshares and the backbone of the entire community, John Robin, I've decided to launch a syndicate that will search out and support stories with a strong female leads. If you can't contribute, please spread the word! I'm thinking of it as a great way to read more every month in a unique Book Club sort of way.
Much love xx
