Dear Sofie,I was delighted to see my novel sitting on your shelf in your " plan to read" category. As a first -time published novelist, I am anxious to get the opinions of avid readers such as yourself. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to your review of An Explicit Nature.
Website tells me it is "experiencing technical difficulties" so I'll run check it out later. You have a great weekend too!
I sit corrected LOL! Hey-who's your cousin?
Thanks 4 the add...
I partially agree with you-authors like Stephen King have all the power in the world to affect what appears in their books. It wasn't always so-which is why Big Steve published "The Unexpurgated Stand" a few years back which restored the novel to the version he originally wrote. But most mid-line authors who have not achieved superstar status do not, if everything I've gleaned about publishing is remotely true, have that much say so. If they're told to cut or change a scene they do it, or else their book does not go forward-or a ghost writer makes the needed changes. Once an author has sold a product to, say, Macmillan Publishing, that product is no longer the author's "baby" and his choices may be limited in how things go. That is my impression, anyway-no offense is intended with these comments BTW. Have a great evening.
I've never been bold enough to email the authors themselves. But I'm pretty discriminating-I am usually (but not always) able to pick out books I know I'm going to enjoy in advance. So I am able to avoid false starts.
That is my favorite thing-when a book attains a fever pitch and you can't out it down. Battlefield Earth was like that-the movie is awful but the book is amazing.
PS-Just found your note. I have never cared for book clubs-a book challenge is one thing because you typically have a variety of ways to meet the goal. But book clubs-I have never been able to stand being told what to read. You have a good weekend too.
Thanks for the friend request!
Sofie: Welcome to the Paging all Bookworms! Reading challenge. Looking forward to discussing books with you.
Thank you Sofie,I can't wait to hear your thoughts.
Hi Sofie,I hope you've had a chance to pick up my latest copies in the Guilty series.Book II: Not Guilty and Book III: Still Guilty
Being an avid reader of authors such as Deja King, I would love for you to read the first three chapters of my novel, Secret Betrayals. Full of sex, lies, and drama, Secret Betrayals is a fast paced, drama filled read. Check out the first three chapters at http://harrietwilson.webs.com/secretbetrayalsexcerpt.htm and let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.
In a moment of pique and frustration Virginia wrote an open letter to Oprah, and shared it with a few writer friends who are going through the same thing we are. Now the letter has started to go viral--getting a lot of repostings and inclusions in blogs, newsletters and on Facebook, so in case you hadn't seen it, we wanted to share our plight, the plight of many black authors with you, readers who have supported us all these years. http://twomindsfull.blogspot.com.In reality Oprah is just a metaphor--a name that might get this subject the attention it deserves. Because when you have a publication like Library Journal listing their 31 Best Books of 2009 http://ow.ly/HDU7 and the "genre" fiction list includes Street Lit --8 books but no category for contemporary African American writers, we are really in trouble. We are trying to encourage diversity in reading--we believe books should be windows, not just mirrors...
Hey, Sofie stop harassing my author friends. LOL
Hey Sofie! I appreciate the support. Really glad you enjoyed Betrayal!! If you get a chance, please post a review on amazon.com and spread the word!! I definitely tried to up the ante with it! Next up is the sequel to Home Wrecker, titled, Eye For An Eye! Much love to you!!
