  1. Dear Katya:

    I’d love to feature one of your novels (your choice) on Snowflakes in a Blizzard. It’s free, all you have to do is fill uot our template, and it has absolutely no downside. It might be a way of expanding your audience a bit. I’m sending you a template below, just in case I can entice you.

    I’ve always thought poets make excellent fiction writers, and I can see how the two go together in your writing.



    THE TEMPLATETHE BOOK: Just the title.PUBLISHED IN: Year.THE AUTHOR: Just your name.THE EDITOR: If appropriate. I like the idea of giving editors some credit.THE PUBLISHER: Name of the publisher and, if you want, some info about them.SUMMARY: A few basic paragraphs about the book, touching on its subject, its general plot and other basics.THE BACK STORY: Why did you decide to write it? How did you research it? How long did it take to write? That sort of thing.WHY THIS TITLE?: If it’s self evident (“The Life and times of Bill Gates”), we’ll just skip that. But sometimes there’s an interesting story behind a title.WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT: What makes your book unique?REVIEW COMMENTS: Maybe three if you’ve got them, four tops.AUTHOR PROFILE: I’d like something more than just a writing resume (although I’d be happy to include links to your previous books). If visitors to the blog feel like they know you a little as a person, they will be more likely to buy your book. AUTHOR COMMENTS: Here’s where you can perhaps tie your book to some larger issue, or what you hoped to accomplish. SAMPLE CHAPTER: LOCAL OUTLETS: WHERE ELSE TO BUY IT: Amazon, Barnes & noble, etc. PRICE: CONTACT THE AUTHOR: I think it’s very important to open the door to writer/reader interaction. You could post your e-mail address, Facebook page, or Twitter handle, or all of the above. Date: Wed, 23 Sep 2015 14:37:24 +0000 To: writersbridge@hotmail.com

    • Thanks! These sorta long passages will be interspersed with hopefully Ames sharp and sarcastic funny internal monologue. I still have a lot of work to do. I will have a week of vacation in October to devote to complete this book. There’s a lot at stake I think. I mean I wanna have a book that people really can care about.
