Why a Reunion Can Boost Your Feel-Good

I have been meaning to write the story of (big inhale here) how two little girls from Tarpon Springs, Florida, who barely knew each other during school, came to work together thirty years later to create one of the most charming "through the eyes of a child" stories, have it illustrated by a giving, dynamic artist across the Pacific in Queensland, Australia, and then publish it with overwhelming cheers from the reading public (exhale). Girl One: Author Theresa "Tess" (Merrill)...

The OH-zone

by Janet Fix -   I'm going into the zone this summer.  The writing zone, the focus  zone, the OH zone . . .where I will be writing FOR ME.  This is an exciting, sculpted time in my Garden of Eden, otherwise known as publishing/editing-dom, and though I will be working as an editor/publisher on a quieter level, I look forward to these weeks of self-inflection.  Let's see what I can do, right?  Right!

The Triumphant Walk of the Published Author, Despite the Odds

By Janet Fix, editor/thewordverve ::  The business of writing (then publishing, then selling) a novel is almost an “against-all-odds” venture. There are no guarantees. None. Not even when you have mega talent, decent financial resources to build your team, and marketing knowledge . . . not even if you are picked by a traditional publisher and coddled (which seems like not such a great thing anymore) . . . not even if you are poor as a church mouse and...

“The Revealing” with Nook Press

Folks, yesterday I uploaded our first Nook Press book, The Revealing, by author Edward J. Schneider. So far, so very very good.  (Actually, I want to say behly, behly goot, because I'm just that happy.) HAPPINESS REASON 1: In this final installment of the time-travel romance series, PARALLEL PAST, Schneider skyrockets to the expectations-met pile with this well-spun adventure. HAPPINESS REASON 2:  The cover is just damn good. AND 3 . . . It was so easy to upload these ebook files...
