Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all […]

    Ah yes…there’s something about knowing that book is out there. So scary! But sometimes it’s easy to pretend nobody’s reading it! The disconnect is fairly strong. If I ever walked into a place and saw a kid reading one of my books, I’d totally flip out. But I’d have to keep it quiet because I learned early on that telling a kid, “I wrote that book” makes them look at you like you’re a crazy lady!ReplyCancel

    Congrats on having a book out there! At least your second book is already for revisions and edits. Good luck!ReplyCancel

    It’s a never-ending battle of writing worry, isn’t it? Strangely, the more we fight it the stronger the strains become. I’m all will be well. Congratulations on your debut!!! Wishing you a wonderful and productive year!ReplyCancel

    And yet we have to move on. As much as we love that first book, others are calling to us. And then there’s the crush of how well any of our little babies are received. People who’ve never written a book don’t realize how important those reviews are.ReplyCancel

    I don’t really have a preference as I read them both! One thing I do like better about paperbacks, other than the feel of an actual book, is that it is easier for me to go back and reread parts of the book.ReplyCancel

    I still prefer to read a paper copy of a book, though my Kidle works well for the pool and vacation.ReplyCancel

    I read books primarily on my Kindle… so much easier as my reading time is in the evening.ReplyCancel

    I prefer print books, but tend to read ebooks because of lack of space. I live in a small-ish apartment, so space for my books is limited.ReplyCancel

    I may be old-fashioned but I still love print books. Print books give you a sense of where you are when it comes to plot development that is more visual than ebooks. If you are holding a print copy and the story seems to be headed toward resolution but you are only halfway through the book, you know the author has more in store for the characters.ReplyCancel

    I never thought I would like ebooks because I’m very old school when it comes to books.But when I first got my kindle I quickly changed my mind and began to love the convenience of buying books online and getting them instantaneously.I still like to read a paperback once in a while when I’m at the beach or park.ReplyCancel

    I read both but my Kindle is great for on the go, like waiting at the dentist’s office or supermarket line.ReplyCancel
