Over the past few months, we have had the pleasure of encountering several members who had their writing professionally published in a means that made it possible for others to buy. For a few, we were linked to novels or eBooks on Amazon, Lulu, Barnes and Noble, and other websites.

It's really a wonderful thing for a writer to get their words out in print. :la: Even for those of you who managed to get your work physically printed through a publishing house, it can be very difficult for an author to gather up a fanbase and receive enough advertising for their writing.

As Writers--club is a group with over ten thousand members, we would like to take a small step toward helping our rising authors. :)

If you have had your work published where it is available for others to buy online, whether it be as a novel, poetry book, short story, eBook, a work as a part of an anthology, please send a note to the group with a link to where it can be purchased. Anyone who has self published is completely welcome to submit a link as well.

From there, we will pick out candidates to be featured as our Members of the Month. We'll pick out several deviations from your gallery and showcase your work with a link to where your published writing can be purchased.

We want to do our part to help out all the rising writers of our time. :D If you think that you will be publishing or self publishing your novel or other form of writing in the future, please feel free to fave this journal and submit your link when the time comes. We will be running this program for many months to come.

And finally, to everyone, keep writing and doing your best! :D

What if you have something that's planned for an anthology, but no information is released about it yet, such as for pre-orders? The one I'm going to be a part of won't be out until July of 2013.

I have one book in print..came out in Nov 2010, and is available in virtually every online bookstore in the world, in Hardcover, paperback and ebook formats...but it's a non-fiction that is a highly controversial subject, and probably not suitable for this post...

I also have a fantasy novel that I've been working on. I finished the first rough draft and I'm working on the first rewrite...I'm hoping to finish by March or April...but that is simply a goal.

My novel is He Walks with Dragons.  It's about dragons and how they interacted with human in our distant past, told through the eyes of the hero, Draig, who becomes a dragonrider...

The second book in the series should be out shortly...

Could you possibly go one step further and have an interview with someone or a vague tutorial on how to start publishing stories for those that don't right now but are considering doing it in the possible future??

That sounds like a good idea! :) It could take us a while to coordinate things though, so if you're interested in doing it pretty soon, you can Google around and get some good answers.

Also, if you're thinking about self publishing, you can go to Lulu.com and they have plenty of information and services. :nod:

In fact, I have two short stories that technically are ready; I'm still exploring my publishing options at the moment.

As funny as it sounds, I really came across this opportunity by luck. :D

I was browsing around on the Marvel Comics forums and one of the "spotlight" comic writers made a thread about an anthology for women writers, being sure to mention that it incorporates all experience levels (which is good, because I was previously unpublished). Soon, I was working with an artist creating a cute little 2-page comic with a "heroic" theme in the Kids & Teens section. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stick around for the individual issues that followed, but I was very grateful to get my name out there, even if I went unpaid.

I guess what I'm trying to say is to just be patient and grab hold of opportunity when you see it. :)

Advice? Hmm.

1) Get busy. There's no right or wrong way to get the words out of your head and heart and onto the page. Advice is nice. Tips are great. But they're no substitute for the work you need to put in. You want to be a writer? Write!

2) Have patience. There are a lot of steps and stages on the path to publishing, and there's no way to rush through them.

3) Keep writing. Don't stop while you're waiting to hear back about queries or proposals. Work while you wait. Write every day.

Thank you. Hey, if you're bored, you're welcome to see what I've got lying around my finalized folder in my gallery. Tis where I'm stashing it for now while I continue getting it ready. As well, any names of publishers I could possibly turn to is also welcome, as I have little knowledge of them anyway. ^_^'

Otherwise, take care. ;D

The note function isn't working for me either.

I have three books published:
_Composing Magic_ is a how-to book on magical/spiritual writing. The other two are poetry: _From Nature's Patient Hands: A Collection of Poetry_ and _Prismatica: Science Fiction Poetry Spanning the Spectrum_. You can buy them from me or directly from the respective publishers.

Over on the science fantasy shared world, Torn World, you can see my creator page listing the fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that I've written. Some is already visible to everyone. Some is for subscribers only until it gets sponsored. So you can buy things and then everyone will get to see them.

I also host a live Poetry Fishbowl in my LiveJournal once a month. Next session is Tuesday, December 4 with a theme of "games and toys." People give me prompts on the theme, and I write poems based on whatever I get. I accept image prompts, if folks want to prompt me with artwork. I post at least one poem for free, there are perks that can reveal more, and the rest are available for readers to sponsor. If you want to have a direct effect on what kind of things get written and published, this is a great opportunity. I've been running this project for 5 years and it's quite popular.

Those are the things that are very easy to find. I have a LOT of other publications in periodicals and some anthologies; if folks want more they can search "Elizabeth Barrette" online and find other stuff like the Llewellyn annuals.

Okay, great. I can be patient; late winter or spring would be good times. Go into summer and I'll be busy writing for the Llewellyn annuals again.

As for publishing -- if you write what the mainstream is buying, go there, they have money and distribution. If you write or want to write things off the beaten trail, look at small press, crowdfunding, or other alternative business models. I have a whole section of my website with advice for crowdfunding projects. I've posted various other how-to essays; look in the Memories of my LiveJournal and see if anything grabs you.

If there are specific topics you'd like covered, or you want to interview me, we can discuss options.

(advice below only goes for short stories and poetry, I know nothing about novels, sorry)

My main advice, I suppose, would be "go for it." Don't try to judge your own writing and wonder if it's good enough. If you get rejected, don't be discouraged. "Second Street" was rejected by several publishers, then accepted twice (the first one then proceeded to turn me down when they found out how old I was). There's a pretty wide range of opinion out there. And even if something really is bad (god knows I've sent off bad stuff), if you never try you can never know.

Also, don't be concerned with money. Yes, a lot of publishers won't take previously published things, but you can always write more. For me, non-paying publications just act like a a second opinion. You might not get money, but you've been deemed good enough to be published! Don't limit yourself, there's a lot of good non-paying ones. And then, if you're getting accepted a lot, then maybe try the paid ones.

Oh, also I forgot one. My first publication! [link] "The Pianist" under the name "Entity Sylvir." (these stories are still up on my account, if anyone's curious)
