Carolyn Howard - Johnson
and Sharing with Writers Subscribers

In the spirit of the advice I give in the Frugal Editor - - that is to use an extra pair of eyes whenever possible - - this newsletter is voluntarily copyedited by Mindy Phillips Lawrence ~ mplcreative1@aol.com ~ www.freewebs.com/mplcreative. I also tell writers to be patient with other writers when they make editing boo - boos. We're all human. This letter comes out weekly and it's long!

Note from Carolyn

Dear Subscribers:

If you love newsletters like this one and some of my other favorites like Penny Sansevieri’s and Joan Stewart’s, this may be sad news for you: Newsletters are losing their popularity. I attribute that to these possibilities:

1. Blogging has supplanted newsletters in many ways.
2. People are sending out fancy HTML newsletters which smack of big business and no personal care and that’s turned people off to them in general.
3. People have less time, or think they do.
4. People are so S P @ M conscious, they are overlooking educational opportunities available on the Web.

You may agree or not. Or you may think of other reasons. If so, I’d like to hear what you think.

To get the conversation started, I want to do two things today. I wanted to let you know why newsletters are still important and what you can do as a reader to utilize them better; thus you’ll find an article later on in this newsletter.

But I also want to increase my newsletter subscription numbers and hope you’ll help with that. Sure you can help! You can send a copy of Sharing with Writers to one or more author friends you think would benefit from more information on the business of writing. This only works, though, if you suggest they subscribe and tell them how to do it. It goes like this: “Carolyn will make it easy on you. Send an e - mail with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line to HoJoNews @ AOL.com and she’ll do the work for you.”

I’m even going to bribe you a bit. I have a .pdf file of the things that Barnes and Noble requires for your book to be listed on its computer. Only books on that list can be ordered by a store manager - - or special ordered by a store manager. So, even if you are doing most of your promotion online, you’ll still want this info so you can be sure your book is available to those who still prefer to shop in bookstores.

Yes, I’m using the honor system. You tell me you recommended this newsletter. I’ll believe you. I’ll send you the .pdf file. ( - :

Happy Writing, Promoting and Editing, too.
Carolyn Howard - Johnson

Letters to the Editor

Carolyn,
You made me smile when I read your newsletter. I've had an Amazon store for 5 years. My web designer made it, but she said it is easy to do (I just don't DO web stuff). She makes it match my Web site so the branding follows through. See? Look here: http://nadinelamanbooks.com/astore.html

Requesting Help: I’m hoping some of you can do my husband a favor. He is rewriting his book What Asians Need to Know About America, From A to Z (published in China in simplified Chinese by Oriental Press). He also has an edition coming out for Indians (India). Now he is rewriting for South Americans and Europeans and needs some celebrities and/or well - known politicians, ambassadors and the like to write endorsements or blurbs for him. If anyone can help or has contacts for him, please let him know at LGJHERE1@aol.com. Here are some samples of endorsements he got for his Chinese edition:

I congratulate you on writing this timely work. The relationship between America and Asia is the most important bilateral relationship of this century. Your book will help Asians to understand America better. This will promote better mutual understanding between America and Asia.
Tommy Koh, former Singapore Ambassador to the U.N. and U.S.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Your book covers a broad range of topics that I am sure many people in Asia will find very useful. I certainly agree with you on the importance of mutual understanding which your book serves to promote.
Clark T. Brandt, Jr., U.S. Ambassador to China
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
I greatly appreciate your efforts in sharing with other people your opinion and experience on the exchanges between different peoples and cultures. It is so important for us to better understand each other while striving to build a better world for all.
Zhou Wenzhong, China Ambassador to U.S.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Books of this kind are mostly filled with platitudes about how Asians should adapt themselves to the American way of life, values and thinking. I found this book refreshingly different from the general run of books in this genre because it shows both Americans and Asians warts and all! Therefore, if some Asians fail to make a mark in the USA or in their dealings with Americans, it is entirely for want of trying hard enough. That is my conviction, and convictions are born of experience.
Mohammad Vazeeruddin, India journalist; former Associate Editor, The Tribune, Chandigarh, India; and former Editor, Andhra Pradesh Times, Hyderabad, India.

In the News: Promises, promises. Barnes & Noble said it would have an e - book store in 2006. Then it backed off from the idea. But it’s b - a - a - a - ck! It’s talking e - books again, probably because it acquired digital - minded Fictionwise for - - are you ready for this? $15.7 million. And probably because competitor Amazon is going after e - book sales. The bad news is that B&N says their downloads won’t be compatible with either Kindle or Sony. In fact, downloads from some devices won’t work with Blackberries and iPhones (though B&N promises theirs will!).

B&N says they are working with another handheld called Plastic Logic. So that’s one more handheld device publishers and self - published authors will have to deal with. Except for the e - book part, they’re all on the wrong track. Readers are customers. They just want access and they want it easily. They aren’t much interested in the petty competitions between giants. That’s what made the Net great. Access by all. Shouldn’t we be able to count on the smart guys to care about the end customer? Especially with one of the most successful models in all of history as a model? Go figure.

Like finding agents, publishers, etc. http://www.highspotinc.com/blog/2008/12/a - directory - of - book - trade - people - on - twitter/ . Find me at www.twitter.com/frugalbookpromo.


=================================================== Book Proposal Help: Phyllis Zimbler Miller and I ran a fun Tweetchat on book proposals. She edited it for easier reading and posted it for those who missed it. There is lots of info in it on shopping your book to agents, too. Remember, you read tweet chats like you follow blogs.

Tip: When you post a blog entry, try to hyperlink as many resources as you can so that your readers can use them easily. That’s what the Web is about - - surfing. Even more important, when you send something to an editor (that includes this friendly editor of Sharing with Writers) include the long URL so that we can easily hyperlink in our blogs - - you know - - without researching the hyperlink. In other words, you submit material with the entire Web address as part of the submission.

On Poetry

This is a running feature for the poets among us and those who would like to try writing poetry but feel, well, inadequate about the writing or the promotion. Please send in your poetry tips and resources for this section.

Poetry may be hard to sell but some media are still covering literary work in the print media. Namely Michelle Mills, reporter for the Pasadena Star - News. Find her coverage of several literary entities here http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/ci_12917109. And do leave a comment. That kind of thing can encourage the newspaper to continue to support this kind of column.



=====================================================
Endorsement: I wanted to tell you how your workshops, reading your newsletter, and just chatting with you has been a great help to me. I have a background in marketing from the fashion world and even though it has helped me get my foot in the door, I honestly have to say that after getting to know you, reading your books, and everything else I just said has truly helped me put Stories for Children Magazine on the map. ~ VS Grenier, Founder and Editor - in - Chief Stories for Children Magazine. http://storiesforchildrenmagazine.org.
=====================================================


In the News: Canadian researchers report that all that positive thinking may only serve to underscore how unhappy we are. So, for those of you who think that manifesting and the principle of attraction is a bunch of hooey, you may rest assured that someone is standing up for the power of negative thinking. I know of two ways negatives are known to work: politics and marketing. You let people know (or lead them to believe) they will suffer if their audience doesn’t vote the way they want or buy the products they want their audience to buy (think of the pharmaceutical companies’ ads!). You use this kind of marketing by letting your audience know the negatives that will befall them if they don’t buy the book you want them to read. I believe the best approach lies somewhere between the two. Let people know the benefits but also make them aware or what they’ll miss (or suffer!) if they don’t take the action you’d like to see them take. That’s real marketing, folks! Whether we like it or not. It works because most of us use both positive and negative considerations when we make decisions. This - - then that. That - - then this.


=====================================================
A general marketing rule is that a product must be seen seven times before it is purchased. That is just as true for books (because they are products, like it or not!). Let people see that book cover image! To do that, you are invited to advertise as a site sponsor at www.howtodoitfrugally.com for only $25 to $30 a year. Yep, the frugal way!

Joyce White Shares Some Promotion Experiments ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Hi guys. I'm Joyce. I imagine most of us writers are experiencing a downward trend in sales. When I first wrote my book, I thought I'd get requests for it in my e - mail box. Instead, I get 200 e - mails a day from others wanting me to buy their books or telling me how to write one. If you're like me, you're blaming it on the economy for lack of sales!

I've come across some exciting ways to fill my days with a way to make some money. I began applying to become an affiliate - - sometimes called passive income opportunities - - for the many publishers out there.
I've been working with American Authors and Homestead. They require some knowledge to set you up but if I can do it, anybody can. Maybe, you'd like to set up a storefront. Come check mine:

www.sculptingtheheartebooks. They have a number of ways to work with links. If you plan on using them, please order through my Web site. At Homestead you can set up a storefront free for the first month to see if you like it.

You can copy and paste to your heart's desire at American Author! No matter how I mess up, and I do once in a while, they come to my rescue. They are very hands on. What I like about American Author is that I can add up to 100 Web pages. I am hosting as many as 40 extra web pages now.

I’ve also been interested in ways you can submit your e - books into hi - tech electronics versions for iPods or e - readers for free. Smashwords is one way to do this. http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/joycewhite.
Try these links for places to sell e - books:

Very best,

If you are happy, you will enjoy both my Web site and my books. If not, you need them. They are filled with inspirational poems, pictures of my artwork, and activities for your inner artist.

Networking Tip from CrystalClearProofing:
I've always said (outside this blogging, networking world) that 'you never know unless you ask.' So I just incorporated that into this new world I'm in now. I may follow someone and in turn ask if they'd do the same. (Just like you did yesterday, Carolyn. You stated that you'd leave a comment on my blog, then you wrote, "and you do the same." I really liked that! Very direct, and it also reminded me to contribute!) - - - - - - "Crystal Clear Proofing will give your work the polished clarity of a diamond ~ Ensuring that what you want to convey to the reader will be Crystal Clear!" www.crystalclearproofing.com

An Itty - Bitty Column on Writing

The Business of Writing II: Organize Your Home Office ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ By Mindy Phillips Lawrence

I want you to stop writing. Yep. That’s what I said. Stop writing– - unless, of course, you publisher is leaning over your shoulder with a machete (a figurative one). I want you to stop everything for a day or two and reassess your home office. I’m a firm believer in doing this at least twice a year. It’s midyear now so this is a good time to do it. Here’s what I want you to do:

~ Weed all unnecessary papers from your office (this included the catalogs from Neiman - Marcus - - yeah, right) and either find a place for the papers you have left or trash them. Make sure to keep all necessary papers but FIND THEM A HOME NOW!

~ Make a place for EACH of your projects and the materials/research that goes with it. A plastic file tote with a top is great for this. Make sure and label each tote with the name of the project and its start date. File everything you gather for that project in that one place and no other. If you have online files that go along with the project, make a record of where to find them online and stick that in the file tote IN THE FRONT!

~ If you review books, make a neat pile of the ones you are working on in the order in which they were received. Print a copy of the e - mails in which you stated when and where you’d review the books and stick it in their front covers.

~ Make individual files for contracts, clients, and taxes and put them in a file cabinet in an order that works for you.

~ Get out your 2010 planner (you have one already, don’t you?) and plan your work for next year. Make a list of all holidays and other special days at least 6 months in advance to query for article submission.

~ ALWAYS refile what you take out. ALWAYS!

~ Make a list of topics that interest you or that are pertinent in the news and that you might want to write about or use in your creative writing. Put these in a file to sift through when you need ideas.

Make a list of all online markets– - podcasts, blogs, newsletters and e - zines—in which you want to place work in the coming year or before. Also make a list of writers with whom you’d like to connect and all the contact information you can find on them. Put this in a database where you can find it.

Oh yeah. There’s more I haven’t thought of so let me know of any other things you can think of to do that will help you organize you writing work. Then, START WRITING! You know where things are now so you should write up a storm!

Feature

Report on Article Disseminator

Time magazine reports that anyone who can string a sentence together can make extra money at eHow.com. That may be pushing it in spite of the picture of a typewriter with a dollar bill being ejected from its roller. They say you might make $20 a year or even $1,5000. Since then I’ve heard authors talk about using it to get some passive income and to still get some exposure for your book and I thought it might be useful for those who are tired of giving their articles away and would like to make a little extra money.

It seems eHow does have high standards for its submissions so I (Ha!) decided to give it a try. Mind you, I spent about three hours setting up a profile and filing my first story, "How To Liven Your Online Writing Using Dialogue." I wouldn’t call me an expert yet but here's my report.

1. Adding a profile was user - friendly, but it appears the site is really more like another social network than a place where people go on their own to learn something from the articles posted there.

2. They may not enforce it, but it appears they don’t want any recycled materials. Mind you I said "recycled" as in "reused" or even "repurposed." I didn't say plagiarized. That goes without saying. That makes it more time consuming than some authors wish to fool with.

3. There may be an easier way for real writers to do it, but eHow is obviously designed to lead nonwriters through a process of making a how - to article understandable. That means that a simple copy and paste is impossible. That means it takes a professional writer a lot longer to post an article than it should.

4. I immediately began to get invitations to be an eHow.com friend. In fact dozens of them - - most of whom were not writing articles or - - if they did - - were not writing articles even vaguely related to my interests or the article I wrote. I was able to turn these off with an "unsubscribe" type link.

5. I got the feeling that the only way to make money at this is if one promotes one's articles like crazy, pretty much acting as a sales person for the articles. But the articles can’t obviously tout your book, so why would I want to spend time doing that rather than spending it promoting my book? I see this process as being advantageous only for a hobbyist writer.

6. After my initial experience, I did not fill out the financial information so I could get paid. Therefore I can’t report on actual income - - but I am pretty certain it is not all that passive. You'll have to work to get paid, and work hard.

So. eHow for writers who want to build a writing reputation is not recommended. Not by me anyway! And not for writers. If any of you feel differently, I’d be happy to post your positive experience and the results, but I'm sorry I wasted my time except that I am able to report my experience to you.
