So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Self Published book makes NY Times best Seller List

While reading C. Hope Clark's Funds for WRiters newsletter today, I became excited about a conference on her itinerary. As I read about it, I found out it is this weekend, too late for me to attend.
But on the conference website I saw that the keynote speaker was a woman from Nebraska who had written and self published a novel which made the NY Times Best Seller List.

She has sold over 75, 000 copies - all online-  at 99 cents each. She has made lots of money and has refused to publish her second book by a traditional publisher. She also has an agent.
See the sidebar for a link to her story.

Congratulations, Pat Davis

I recommend that all writers read this post if you plan to submit a manuscript for publication. My friend, Pat Davis, has succeeded in finding a traditional publisher for her romantic mystery.

I met Pat at a NCWN Conference in 2007 while waiting for the elevator. I liked her immediately and when I found her home was Brevard, NC, we embraced her and welcomed her into the group of Netwest writers who had come to the conference. 

Pat lived in Pennsylvania at the time, but is now home again in Brevard. I hope to see her more often once she is settled in her new house.

You can find her blog link on the sidebar of this blog.

Take note of how many times she read her work and revised her work. Good writers are good re-writers.
