When Your Muse is Calling

I've never needed a push to get started with writing. My muse is always speaking to me, putting a pen into my hand, or flying across my keyboard.

Yesterday, before sending Release Your Writing off to the publisher, I received a wonderful endorsement for my book from Jan Phillips, author of the outstanding book: Marry Your Muse.

So imagine my surprise when I went to dinner with a friend last night and she presented me with this adorable gift -- a real muse!

The quote on her skirt is from James Michener:

"I love writing. I love the swirl & swing of words as they tangle with human emotions."

Inspiring, isn't it? Strike while the pen is hot !

Release Your Writing: Book Publishing Your Way

Release Your Writing: Book Publishing, Your Way will be available in Autumn 2007.
Helen Gallagher

Self-publishing continues to grow as a productive alternative to traditional publishing where:
book proposal + agent + publisher = about a two year time frame.

With self-publishing and more specifically Print-on-Demand (POD) you have another option: You handle the writing and publication process, with editorial input and design under your control. You use a POD firm to assist with print production, formatting, printing, distribution, obtaining ISBN, online sales, credit card processing, and fulfillment. Yes, you pay for that service, but if your choice without it is to remain unpublished, it's worth it.

Sound good? You bet. Send an email to to learn more about the book and POD. You can also add comments, questions and suggestions here about what you want to see covered in the book.
