Can I Publish My Late Father’s Stories? Maybe, Maybe Not…

I have a short story written by my late father. He was a talented writer and had many short stories he had written. I would like to submit one of his stories for publishing under my father’s name. I didn’t know if there would be any legal reason I would not be able to.

Do You Think I’m…Obsessed???

While my bedroom closet may be in disarray (that’s an understatement!), and the laundry may be backed up for three days, I am very organized with regards to business, paperwork/bills and…Christmas. Yes, really. It’s a bit of an obsession for me…

EMBARRASSING! When Friends and Family Lie About Buying Your Book By Angela Hoy

Even though he had zero receipts, and even though he didn’t forward any correspondence to me from those individuals, and even though he could not or would not give information about even one “missing” sale, he insisted I get the money…

“I Have Had So Many Compliments On (my BookLocker.com book cover design)!!

Angela,
Thanks for putting Twenty-One Steps of Courage at the front of the cover design examples. I have had so many compliments on that cover, and always refer any authors who ask about it to you (and Todd). Because we used a real Soldier on the front, readers often think the story is non-fiction. I love that! Their remarks validate my choice to make sure the novel was as factual as possible.
