    Hi! I won your wonderful butterfly bag stuffed with your books and other goodies at the recent Georgia Romance Writers M&M Conference through their raffle. Thanks for donating such a great gift! I’m sure I’ll be reading when I should be doing housework.

  2. admin says:

    Michelle, how kind of you to let me know! I hope you enjoy the goodies and the books! I was so tempted to keep that lovely bag, myself–hope it comes in handy. If I’d had my mitts on it a few minutes longer, you might have been stuck with a deee-lightful Publix shopping bag full of stuff! 🙂

    Thanks again for writing. I couldn’t be at the conference this year, and I wondered about the basket. I’m so glad you’re happy with it!

    I’m afraid you would have had to fight my daughter for the bag! It’s too cool the way it’s reversable into a funky green color. Hope you can make the conference next year. We definitely had a blast!

    Sorry to be so long–I’ve been having Internet difficulties, and time away from the laptop! I’m so glad your daughter liked it enough to take it over. I love when my daughter does that! Glad you had a good M&M time. I’m planning to be there next year! Sounds as if it was a great time!

    Hi Anna,

    Sandra, I am SO excited to hear from you! I hope you don’t mind–email to come! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog–and even more for getting touch! Yay!

  7. Anna says:

    hi! omg my name is Anna Adams too! i typed my name to see what came up, and i also wanna be a writer

  8. admin says:

    I’m so sorry–I thought I’d replied to your note, Anna. So nice to “meet” you! I hope you succeed. The entire world will be filled with Anna Adams–writing like crazy!

    Thanks for the stories and the work you put into them.
    FYI, on page 90 of Her Reason to Stay; you refer to Patrick’s mom’s house as a manse. That is a word that is only correctly used for a Presbyterian pastors’s home. It does not mean a mimi mansion. I realize that that is an increasingly common mistake, one that your editor should have corrected. It seems that the more something is printed, the more people believe it to be true. So, realizing that responsibillity even in such a small thing, please be careful of your facts.

    Thanks, Charlene! Appreciate it!

    Good evening Anna, I love the website and I was so, so happy to see pictures. Most of all, pictures of Kitty. I am writing enough said. Love the thunder and lightening show here in Kennesaw – it’s been wild. For me, this past week it was Pride and Predjudice….

  12. admin says:

    Hey, Theresa! I’m so glad to hear from you! Hmmmm. Your note is intriguing. I’ll call you sometime this week and you can explain! Till then I’ll just imagine Matthew Macfadyen, very loosely based on Mr. Darcy, striding across that field in those lovely thighs and that handsome coat! 🙂

    I do not have a website but I just finished reading your ‘The Prodigal Cousin’ and I wonder if you consider a sequel or do you ever consider this talent. It would be great to know more about the Calverts, especially Sam, Mollie and Sam’s daughters. Patiently waiting for your response. Family stories are dear to my heart even though I am a young 80 yr old living in a nurisng home.

  14. admin says:

    Hi Norma,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write your sweet note. I’m so glad you enjoyed The Prodigal Cousin. Unfortunately, I have to tell you it was the last in a trilogy about three cousins from a small town in Tennessee that I based on my mother’s hometown there. (I love beautiful Tennessee!) The first book was called The Secret Father, and the second was called The Bride Ran Away. I wish I had copies to share, but I culled my books in a recent move, and forgot to save a few.

    I hope you are well and finding lots of warm family stories to enjoy! Thank you again for your so kind note. (I think Sam and Molly went on to have a happy, loving family with a baby boy who’s wrapped his parents and his sister around his tiny pinky. But right now they’re all missing Tamsin, who’s having a great time at college–except she misses her siblings–cause how are they getting along without her?)

    West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the largest non-profit writers’ resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia. We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors. Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state’s writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.

    Every year we sponsor both a writing competition and a writers’ conference. Held in June at the Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley, the conference offers writers three days of over fifty writing workshops, presentations and panel discussions suited to the needs of poets and writers of all genres, all ages and all experience levels.

    Additionally, each attendee receives a WV Writers tote bag full of writing publications and writing-related useful information. Now, let us get to the purpose of this note. We would be honored to include in this “goody bag” any promotional materials you would be willing to provide to us. We anticipate an attendance of around 200.

    We get a lot of bookmarks, pens, anything that would promote your books. This will give you more exposure and maybe future sales.

    Thank you in advance and I look forward to your response.

    Hey, Deborah,

    I’ll get a few books together, and also, if you don’t mind, I’ll post your note on my blog.

    All the best,

    I know you are a busy person but I have just 1 question and would greatly appreciate an answer.

    At one stage you were an unknown, you had not yet published a book.

    So how did you do it – how does someone like me get that first book published?

    Thank you for whatever it is you can advise me.

    Hi, Sylvia,

    How nice to hear from you! I assume you’ve already found the type of story you enjoy writing, so I won’t suggest you start your search there. You sound as if you need a community of writers. Romance authors are especially generous in sharing know-how and information. Have you heard of Romance Writers of Australia? I’m not sure if they have local chapters, as we do here in the USA with Romance Writers of America, but I’m positive you’d be able to find likeminded writers.

    If you’ve targeted a publisher, you can usually find their submission requirements on their website, including their willingness to take unagented material. (You may need to find an agent for representation.) Again, if you’re searching for an agent, most have websites as well, and they provide information on their interests, as well as submission guidelines.

    There are also many online workshops that provide information on almost any topic you could imagine. In fact, I just found this posting of workshops on the Romance Writers of Australia website.

    Obviously, the first thing you need to do is write the book. Second, you need to decide where the book would best fit, and research how to submit to that publisher. (Or to an agent if your ideal publisher only accepts agented material.) Then you’ll need a lot of patience (because waiting for decisions is painful) and perseverance because sometimes the decision is not the one we want, and you have to start the whole process again, either with a new book, or revising to submit elsewhere. Remember to keep writing the next book after you submit the first, and know that publishing is definitely more marathon than sprint.

    Also–today, you have the option of indy publishing (publishing digitally yourself) or publishing with digital publishers like Samhain and Entangled. I haven’t published anything myself, but I know there’s information to be found online on the steps for doing it. And you can check out websites again for submitting to digital publishers. Harlequin has recently announced Harlequin Escape, looking specifically for Australian authors.

    I hope this gives you some places to start, and I wish you all the best. I hope I’ll be reading one of your books one day.

    Hey Anna
    I loved your french girl series. Just finished number 2. Will there EVER be a number 3?

  20. admin says:

    I’m sorry, but I’m not that Anna Adams. I hope you find her, and I hope I have time to read her intriguing books soon!

    Lynne, thanks for your note! I hope you’ll be able to find the Secret Father, The Bride Ran Away, and The Prodigal Cousin! They were all set in Tennessee, a place that’s dear to my heart, and they reminded me of my own family! Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks, Regina! And Thanks for stopping by!
