Elise Frances Miller, author of A Time to Cast Away Stones, tells why Kindle giveaway never happened

Explaining our failed “Kindle giveaway” – Predatory practices? You be the judge!

First, the website Kindleboards.com is in no way connected with Amazon, even though they use the name ‘Kindle.’”

Elise adds: “If you want the bloody details, read this clear and damning article by Smashwords.”

author Elise Frances Miller at Literary Arts stage, San Mateo County Fair

Elise Frances Miller’s novel, A Time to Cast Away Stones, published by Sand Hill Review Press, is set in Berkeley and Paris in 1968. Her blog focuses on comparing the Paris May Revolution of 1968 with the Occupy Movement today.

Cheering for Elise and all writers!

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa

Coach Teresa says: “I love helping writers build their platforms and published authors fortify theirs with individualized coaching.”

As coach and author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW, she advices: “Make your name synonymous with the issues you write about.”

Teresa has built her own platform happily; her novel Love Made of Heart and her short play Answer Me Now carry the theme closest to her heart: mother-daughter relationship.

Teresa LeYung-Ryan helps clients identify themes, universal archetypes, front-story and back-story in their manuscripts.

Teresa created the annual “Immigrant Experience Writing Contest” and cheers for all contestants.

Dear California Writers Club Friends!

I’m thrilled to announce the upcoming release of my novel, A Time to Cast Away Stones, set in Berkeley and Paris in 1968, by Sand Hill Review Press.

For now, I hope you will save the date for the launch party – your invitation is below! As of this email, we are still awaiting the book’s release. I will contact you again to let you know when it is available to the public – online and at bookstores.

As fellow-travelers, you know how much I appreciate your friendship and support! See you soon! Elise

You are all invited to join us for the LAUNCH PARTY at  Books Inc.

1375 Burlingame Ave., Burlingame CA

Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Refreshments will be served!

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan

Editor, Story Consultant, Platform-Building Coach

http://writingcoachteresa.com

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan has helped over 1,000 writers.

“Reach out, not stress out, to materialize your dearest dreams.”

Feb. 2, 2012 Passionate writers who attended my session for WNBA members and guests “What Is A Platform and How Do I Build Mine?” at San Francisco Main Library, please broadcast your names and your themes here.  How?  Click on the blue title bar of this post, scroll down to get the boxes, fill in the boxes and click on “submit comment” button so that thousands of  my fans will see your names and URLs, and read about what you care about. (your email addresses will not be revealed)

Courageous authors Mary E. Knippel, Mary French, Lana Dalberg, Laura Bean,  Mathilde Apelt Schmidt, Carole Bumpus, Elise Frances Miller, Carol Sheldon, Fred Glynn, Shulamit Sofia, Catherine C. Robbins, and Richard  G. Robbins DECLARED what they care about.

Please refer to the yellow sheet from tonight’s session.  Look at what you had written in the boxes “What do I care about?”  Then look at the 3 columns:  Professional Circle; Personal Circle; Community Circle

How will you tell/show the people listed in those 3 columns “what you care about”?

Start by showing your declaration in your email signature block and saying it in your outgoing message. Then what?  Do the exercises in my workbook. You can sneak preview the 2 exercises for Day 1 of my workbook Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days by going to Amazon’s page for my workbook; look for my bookcover with the  “Click to look inside” arrow.

My signature blocks

Example 1: (as  an author of fiction, narrative nonfiction and speeches–genres that require “story-telling” techniques )

Sincerely,

Teresa LeYung-Ryan

“I use my book Love Made of Heart to encourage adult-children of mentally ill parents to speak openly the stigmas and find resources for their families.”

Example 2: ( as an author of prescriptive nonfiction aka self-help books)

Sincerely,

Teresa LeYung-Ryan

“I use my workbook Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW to help my clients make their names synonymous with the themes/subject matters/issues they write about.

Example 3: (as a writing coach, story consultant, developmental editor)

Sincerely,

Teresa LeYung-Ryan

“I help my clients polish their manuscripts by identifying their themes and archetypes.  I know what it takes to write a page-turner; my novel Love Made of Heart is used as required reading in composition classes.”

Coach Teresa asks passionate writers: “What do you care about?”

You are courageous and I cheer for you!

Reach out, not stress out!  Have fun with my workbook!

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa
