Hi Everyone-I am a fiction writer.  However, I do also write a blog, which I post here as well as redroom.com where I am currently located. I am also building a website with wordpress.  My question is do many of you think that it would be more advantageous to have my blog on wordpress than Red Room?  Red Room doesn't get a lot of traffic, but I have built up a following, which I don't want to lose if I move.  However, I always want to build my audience.  Any suggestions?Thanks in advance :)See More

Whispering to be Heard

Everyone wants to be heard.  We all want our points understood; our ideas to matter and our feelings considered.  And when we are not heard, we can feel frustrated and insignificant.  If we feel ignored enough times we begin to question the importance of our own points and ideas, which can eventually damage our feelings of self-worth.   We live in loud society.  The various outlets of social media remind us that there is always someone with something to say.  And all the electronic devices…See More

Hadley Rille Books--Guest Post

The publishing industry is changing.  Literary agents, publishing houses and especially writers are being affected by these changes.  Writers are no longer subjugated to the capriciousness of the publishing industry's ever-changing tastes.  With the development of social media, we now have the autonomy to write and publish our own work and then allow readers to decide if our work has value.  These changes have enabled previously unknown writers and their work to find an audience.  And it has…See More

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Novel?

“We are so scared of being judged that we look for every excuse to procrastinate.” 
-Erica JongOne of the greatest ironies is the writer who doesn't write.  The person who reads books like one devouring cupcakes after a ten-day juice fast.  The person, who is passionate about prose, recites lines of poetry, memorizes quotes from the classics and loves to tell a good story.  The person who declares "writer" as a profession yet often fails to write.  Why does a person proclaiming to be a writer…See More

Minding Our Social Media Manners

Minding Our Social Media MannersGood manners are made up of petty sacrifices.  ~Ralph Waldo EmersonMost of us have been taught the social graces necessary to behave properly in polite society; however, a good number has either chosen to forget or refuses to comply.  Good manners shouldn't be a cultural convention relegated to eighteenth-century romantic novels; people should always conduct themselves with propriety when interacting with others.After all, saying "please" and "thank you", holding…See More

Social Media Experts

I have been using Twitter for awhile but I have a question that I am hoping someone can answer for me.  I get new followers but my number of followers doesn't reflect it.  So, for example, I may add 10 people but my number of followers only goes up by one or not at all.  Can someone explain this?Thanks so much!See More

Millionth Monkey--Guest Post

Every writer who has sat among broken pencil tips and crumbled paper strewn about the desk and floor understands the time, effort, frustration and work involved in producing a novel.  The endless notes scrawled on every scrap of paper, the outlines, pounding headaches and cups of strong coffee attest to the difficulty often involved in this endeavor.Writers also know what it feels like to complete a manuscript--satisfied, anxious, unsure, and ready.  Satisfied to have months or years of work…See More

Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.

My name is Jay Siva, the founder of EZBuyButton.com, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.

It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.

The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.

I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

My website is http://www.ezbuybutton.com.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you. Thank you for your time.

kindest regards,
Jay Siva
