i sent some of my poems to michelle kidwell, and she is putting them in her forthcoming book, with a little help.

i wrote some poems about living with disability, and they are going to be featured in michelle kidwell's forthcoming book, "with a little help", which has just been accepted for publication by publishamerica. this is to be my first published work and my first book, even though i am just the co-author. :)

Congratulations on your debut as a published author. You have a voice to share with the world... I am glad you are going to be able to let people into the world of a person with disabilities to let them know that we are just as capable if given a fair chance. Again, congratulations and much success to you.

Great title, great cover and bold move! And at least one other great writer to work with (I will have to get to know Michele Kidwell as I haven't yet) May this go far with work & time...

What a glorious expression of what the grace of God and the determination of the human spirit that hears His voice can do.

May this book touch millions and may it be in the hands of every person that needs this to give them the much needed breath of strength they need to push on! What a joy! What a treasure!

Congratulations on your book collaboration! It is very exciting being published, isn't it? And for those people who think that self-publishing or POD publishing won't go far, I have this message:

My first POD (by Trafford Publishing) novel Whale Song came out in 2003, my second Divine Intervention in 2004 and my third The River in 2005.

Since then, Whale Song has been picked up by a traditional publisher (possibly because of my huge belief in my novel and because I had a proven track record of sales) and a movie treatment and screenplay for Whale Song are now in the hands of an executive producer who requested it after reading my SELF-PUBLISHED book. And if they decide not to take it, my new publisher has 4 agents (one from Hollywood) who are just waiting!

So my message to all self-published, POD, independent authors and all aspiring authors is to do whatever it takes to get noticed and published. And never, EVER give up!

It doesn't matter whether you authored or co-authored the book, Karen. YOU are a published author! Take pride in that and never look at it as a small accomplishment. Many people are too afraid to take the risk and step onto the ledge. You jumped off. :)

Your 'mystery' friend in Canada,

Hi Karen

Congratulations! That's wonderful news. I really like the cover of the book, they are colours I lean towards often. You must be feeling on top of the world, as you well should and I hope the book is a great success.

I'll be in the USA in September in New York and then San Francisco on my way home from a whirlwind trip taking in a little bit of Bangkok, a bit bigger bit of London, a lot of Ireland and then a few days in New York and a couple in San Francisco. So I will be close by wooooooo. Mind you I don't have a clue where Texas is anymore than I have a clue where New York or San Francisco are. I must do a bit of navigating around the world between now and 21st August when I fly out :) I might get lost otherwise lol. I often think how strange it is that people know nothing much at all about Australia and yet, if I am honest, I know bugga all about the world outside of Australia. However I will be getting a bit more of an idea soon :) About time no doubt lol.

Take care and keep writing up a storm. I'm having a bit of a layoff time - the news about glaucoma knocked my socks off and it's taking me a while to get used to less vision and the restrictions I now have to live with. I decided I had best go overseas soon because I have no idea where this is going to take me .. prognosis is 'you could go blind'. That's life and acceptance is the key I think. I, like you, may be handicapped, but I am alive and I live.

Karen, once you get one book on your writing resume, more will follow. It's like getting any other job. You don't get one until you've had one and you can't have one until you get one. One day that person appears who looks beyond the vicious circle. Congratulaitons. Huggs to you too

Sis being a co-author is better than not being one at all. You both collaborate on the book, and you both make money. Well a little anyways (giggles).
