Hello and Introduction

We’ve had a lot of discussions lately in writing dens across the country about the changing face of publishing. Should we print pub, e-pub, or hop on board the newest train, self-pub (sometimes called indie pub)? Or, is the best business model some combination of the three?

We’re here to find out. We three ‘Janes’ – Kim, Nancy and I – are three intrepid authors, ready to step into the unknown. We’re embarking on a journey to publication, whatever that may look like. Along the way, we invite you to join us. Each of us has very distinct areas of interest. Kim knows the industry, agents and editors. Nancy, the craft. I’m the ‘cheerleader’.

Over the next few months, we’ll be adding segments to this blog that will encourage – we hope – two way communication, from us to you, and from you, our fellow authors and readers, to us. Coming down the pike: Guest Bloggers, Crazy Hair Friday, New On The Bookshelf, What We’re Reading, and much more.

Join us. Sit for a spell. Tell us what you’re thinking. And we’ll share with you our bumpy journey, with some value added extras for good measure.

Ciao for now~

  6. Hi ‘Janes’ – It’s good to hear from you, particularly since you are bringing three different voices to the front. After attending writing workshops and talking to agents, publishers and authors, I’ve chosen the e-publishing route for my novel. I’ve been fortunate to know someone in marketing who is willing to take on the responsibility that otherwise would be handled by a publishing house. With these plans in place it should be ready to hit the market (print-on-demand, Kindle and Nook) sometime this summer. I look forward to reading more from you, and also from your readers. Thanks.
