I have been a member here for a while but have never posted anything that I can remember. I like this place. I told my sister about it and I saw where she introduced herself a while back. This is a secret gem in the writing world but it doesn't need to be. - Keith
I am excited to be here and learn more about all of you. I hope to write professionally one day; Authors Community is an amazing resource that I will utilize. I am grateful and proud to be a member. - Jen P.
Greetings from the Windy City! I'm excited to join you guys here on Authors Community. I looking forward to the journey together. In case you want to check out my blog here is the link katalambanoit.weebly.com. - Lolita
Honestly, writing is my passion and always has been. My brother also writes and he is the one who introduced me to this community. I'm looking to make connections and to seek guidance in the writing, editing, and publishing process. The path to being a full-time writer is not an easy one, I know. I'm thankful communities like this exist so we can help each other. - Amanda Jewel Warren
I'm a retired Associate in Ministry, a former youth leader, and have a background in early elementary education. I am a Christian Children's author. In 2006 God called me to be a writer for children. This has been and exciting journey. Now my goal here is to learn more about social media to be able to share my books with more people. - Jann Martin
I just found out about this site. So far, I love it. It's a lot like the one I used to belong to called Authors by Design. I was one of the moderators on a private critique group. I loved it but it got too busy and I had to quit. But I miss all our members. - Paul West and Authors by Design
Hi! We were happy to learn about this site and will encourage our authors to join as well. We're a small independent publisher in the Midwest. Feel free to check out our sites below and let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to participating in this forum. - Jennifer Geist, Pen & Publish, Inc.
I'm Sarah Tun and I'm a vendor here on Authors Community. Not too long ago, I got an email from COO Gina Burgess. Someone was interested in my services and she put us together. I'm in discussions for creating an audio book for another member.
We'd never have found each other in the mass of possibilities on the open web.
Thanks Gina and AC! - Sarah Tun
I was quite moved by this article (The Scent of Bias Ink) and I would love to share it with my readers. I am the editor for Enthralled Magazine and I'm seeking permission to republish the article. As many of my readers are first time writers or well-seasoned, experienced writers I'm sure this article will resonate with them. - Susan Day, Enthralled Magazine
About the newsletter article - I Will Not:
This is fabulous! - Deborah A. Bowman Stevens
I just wanted to thank Pam for the editing work she did for me with my debut book, "Times of Trouble Bring Rays of Joy." She was professional and hard-working. She alerted me to a change we had to make that, had I not been aware of it and left it undone, could have caused me major issues. I am thankful that she took me on as a client. She was timely in her delivery of the edited manuscript. - Cecelia Lester
I hate the blah blah blah approach to marketing. You seem to be diving into the real waters of writing; what I experience. Don’t lose site of the need to stay anchored in the deep, stormy, waters. - Dennis James Deegan, DTM
I appreciate all that Tom, Gina, and the community have, and are still doing. I needed to know something the other day, so I went on to one of the forums, and within minutes I had a clear answer. Swift, easy, and extremely manageable. Thanks again - C.P.M.Winship
