We are looking for writers in the North East of the United States to come to a college in New Jersey for a chance to speak to students, have a question and answer session, sell their books, and then a book signing afterward. Writers will have the chance to advertise their work to a student body with over ten thousand students and their work. Everything would take place during the course of one day.

We are looking for writers who have published or self-published at least one novel, book of short stories, or book of poetry. The writer will need to bring copies of their work to sell at the college on the day of the event. We want to make this an opportunity for published and self-published authors to reach out to a wider audience, sell more of their books, and speak to a young generation of students.

Ideally, we are looking for writers in the nearby area to minimize traveling costs. The events will be held in the time frame of late February or March. The event would be occurring on a weekday and the date is flexible to the author's availability.

Please comment with a link to where your work can be purchased below if you are willing to travel to New Jersey for this event. We will contact you to go over more information.

Thank you all very much! We look forward to hearing from you!

Further updates on club events and contests will be coming soon, but for now, we want to give our authors this opportunity for expanding their audience.

Member of the Month

Our newest member feature goes to Alan R. Smith!

He has self published the novel Enchantments of the Haglady: Ancient Lands, Wonders, Adventures.



The overview...

"Enchantments of the Haglady explores the “dream” world of a young girl, and the “struggle to survive” of a young boy, each who overcome heartbreak, misfortune, and calamity through their strength of character and a belief in themselves. This intricately crafted novel walks the line between historical time-travel and fantasy, balancing the two with ease as it explores the travels of the two orphans, a girl from the 21st Century, the other, a boy from the 11th Century, who grow strong in spite of their tragedies, and meet on the docks of Venice just before the First Crusade. The Enchantments will transport the reader to ancient lands of pirates, shipwrecks, a kidnapping, an emperor and empress, a princess, a first infatuation that crosses over centuries, and the always present and mysterious Haglady."

His book is available in hardcover, softcover, and as an ebook from many online stores.

He also offers advice to fellow writers, exclusive to this feature.

:bulletpurple: Question I: What advice do you have about the publishing process?

If you begin with a target audience, you are ahead of the writing. Whether you stay on that track as your words jump off the page is another subject to discuss.
Do your publishing homework: talk to folks who have published; read all you can about the "pros/cons" of self-publishing; build a budget (a realistic one) as money will have to be spent; no friends or family as beta-readers so you can hear what "needs" to be said.
If you take the critical remarks personally, good, but you "need" to hear them, what you do with them is up to you.


:bulletpurple: Question II: Do you have any advice for your fellow writers?

Why are you writing is what you must come to grips with: to make a living; to be heard; to empty your soul; to touch others. My best advice is "Write your voice."

:bulletpurple: Question III: Did you have any trouble pushing through to the end of the book after you got halfway through?

Once I had my "voice" there was no stopping. I let my fingers do the work. The most difficult part of the writing process was getting away from the book, to "live my life": driving down the road an idea would "pop" and I would have to pull to the side of the road; I'd wake up in the middle of the night and run to the computer with an idea, often it was changing a character; killing a chapter (then putting it back in); characters needed to have a gender change as I saw them interacting with other characters; depending on the way my new path would take me.

:bulletpurple: Question IV: What was the hardest part of staying motivated?

No problem as noted above.

Hi!  Thank you so much for accepting me! 

I uploaded a poem called Lady Paper a few days ago, and since poetry really isn't my strong point I'd love to get some constructive feedback on it if anyone is interested.

Thanks!
