Greetings from fabulous Las Vegas! I'm Mark Isaacs, a high school English teacher who after several years as a journalist began creative writing when I asked my students to write a short story and thought it only fair that I do the same since I had never written one. As I did, I discovered I liked tapping into my imagination and writing down what popped up, and within a few years had a dozen short stories that I took great gratification in reading to my captive kids. Their especially enthusiastic response to one, a humanistic allegory entitled "The Greatest Blessings," inspired me to self-publish an illustrated hardcover edition of the story that cost a pretty penny but has made my mother very proud in showing off to her friends at her retirement home. Hey, that alone made the hit I took worth it, but it would be even better if I sold the remaining 200 copies I have taking up space in my living room. Any ideas?
Hi, I'm a part-time writer and full-time festival director. I'm also a recovered alcoholic/drug addict (31 years). I wrote a novel, which is very loosely based on some of my story. How to Grow an Addict: a novel, was published Nov 2015 with She Writes Press. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B010TWF0GC. Since publishing, I've been doing what I can to promote my book. I appreciate the opportunity to connect with other authors.
My name is Ted Bacino. I have spent my entire life in writing, starting as a reporter on a daily newspaper. Since then I've been working mostly in marketing and directing live theater. My novel, The Shakespeare Conspiracy, is my first venture in book publishing.
Hi, I am new around here, a writer from England. I have published 3 novels as eBooks and the first in a paperback edition. They sell in sufficient numbers to keep me in fulltime employment but I live in hope!
I have so far concentrated on thrillers set in the 19th Century and in 2 cases during the period of the Napoleonic Wars.
My current WIP is also set in the late 19th Century but I have other neglected projects from science fiction to theatre scripts.
Hello! My name is KT McColl and I'm a technical writer by trade. During my free time, I write paranormal and BDSM erotica. You can find me at www.ktmccoll.com.
I am very happy to be here! I am E.G. Weeks, also known as Lainey. I am an author of romance, erotica, inspiration and poetry. I have published books with a publisher and as an independent author. I write mostly with the middle-aged woman in mind. She is a force to be reckoned with and as such I hope to remind her that she is a beautiful, sensual being, no matter her age or station in life. My characters are mostly women over 40 years old and they represent today's women, they are imperfect beauties with character flaws and a genuine desire to love and be loved beyond their wildest imagination.
