Writing is a constant dialogue between author and reader.

An author creates a story line, conflict, and characters, gives his characters words to speak, and then hands off these materials to a reader.

33 Worst Mistakes Writers Make About Blind Characters



I admire any writer who wants to tackle a blind character. But so many writers take up this challenge and FAIL. They research blindness by reading other fiction books, by observing their blind colleagues and acquaintances, and by tying on a blindfold and pretending to be blind themselves.



I understand the challenges your characters face, their triumphs, their hopes and their fears, because I've lived them. I work with people who have varying degrees of blindness every day, so I've seen every challenge, every situation you could imagine.



Let me share my knowledge to improve your writing. You can create blind characters that readers will fall in love with.

Q –

Hi Angela,

I’ve read several articles on WritersWeekly about writing about real people. I know it’s dangerous.

Three of my characters are based directly on real, living people. All three have read my novel, and given me permission to represent them as I have. I’ve referred to “Business and Legal Forms for Authors and Self-Publishers” by Tad Crawford and cannot find a release form that applies to this situation.

If I write a letter for my publisher stating these people consent to my representing them in my novel and release me from any legal action, including their signature, would this suffice?


A –

I am not an attorney and this is not legal advice. That said…

You’ll need to obtain written, notarized releases from each of them. You never know what money might do to people, even family and friends. If your book sells well, and if you have not protected yourself and your  publisher, you just might find yourself embroiled in an expensive lawsuit.

There’s a sample release RIGHT HERE.

I encourage you to review that, and to consult with your attorney.

Q –

I ordered a copy of my own print on demand book from Amazon. I was then shocked to receive an email from Amazon saying they couldn’t obtain my book. And, they cancelled my order! It’s print on demand for crying out loud! Amazon sells other books by my publisher and Ingram ships those books to Amazon! What can I do?!


A –

Amazon was doing this same thing about a year ago. I’m not sure exactly what happened with their system but it did get fixed back then. There is, apparently, another problem now because we are receiving reports of this happening once again. You need to immediately contact your publisher, and telling them to tell Ingram to “open a ticket with Amazon.” They will contact Ingram, which will contact Amazon. For better service, have a copy of the email that Amazon sent to you or your customer AND have the Amazon order number.

Q –

I just published a new book and (this is embarrassing) I haven’t told anyone in my family about it. I’m too nervous! What if my siblings make fun of me? Yes, they are those types of people. What if my parents think it’s awful and are too embarrassed to tell their friends about it? 

I know this probably sounds silly but I just don’t know what to do. Should I just not tell them? I was hoping if I did that they might tell their friends or co-workers and I might make some sales. I feel more comfortable telling strangers about my book than I do my own family and friends. Is this normal?

– Roberta B.


A –

This is actually NOT a unique problem. It’s often easier to “perform” in front of strangers than it is to do so in front of our families. And, sharing your writing is performing…in a literary sense. If someone is raised in an overly-critical family, the fear can be quite real.

Let me preface this by saying there is a not-so-fine fine line between critiquing a book and personal criticism. If I ask someone to read my book, and give me an honest critique, I expect to get it. But, I also expect that critique to be professional, not rude. It seems your family, or at least your siblings, might be inclined to be nasty (i.e. “YOU wrote a BOOK? I bet it SUCKS!”). THAT is not a critique.

When I published my first book, I sent free copies to several family members. I didn’t need to worry about criticism because only one person read it. ONE. (Yeah, that stung.) Now, granted, it was on the topic of writing and my family members, with the exception of my brother, are not writers. But, still, it felt like a slap in the face.

The same thing happened with my second book. So, by the time I published my third (I’ve published 24 books now), I stopped sending out free copies to my family members. Nowadays, I don’t even tell them when I release a book. Instead, I spend my time promoting the book to an audience that I know will be interested in it based on the genre of that book.

I have heard from authors in the past whose families have poked fun at them for publishing a book. All I can say to those authors is…the problem likely stems from jealousy. Almost everyone has a book in them but few, statistically, actually write and publish that book. You’ve done something that most other people will never have the courage to do!

If it’s not jealousy, it simply means your family members are jerks. If that is the case, I definitely don’t recommend sending copies to them, nor even telling them about your accomplishments. Nobody needs that in their lives. Blood may be thicker than water but it’s certainly not thicker than many people’s skin when it comes to family bullying. And, why should we need thick skin in order to deal with the pressures or meanness of family members? If this describes you, find supportive, loving friends and make your OWN family. 🙂

Q – 

I’m a short story writer and sometimes a person will say a word or phrase that “inspires me.” I did this when a friend inspired me with her story. I wrote a short with a phrase but I used the word “I,” implying to readers I was referring to myself. 

Then I sent it to her, stupidly saying, “I wrote a story about you.” I used the wrong stupid words. I don’t think she even read it and said, “get rid of it or else.” I didn’t get rid of it because it’s one of my best stories. I just changed the title.

When I got my short story book published, I sent it to her. She said, “thank you,” and didn’t even notice the story, which shows it didn’t reflect on her in any way, except for her few inspiring words.

But, I confessed three years later that I felt sorry for using the wrong words “about you” when telling her about it, and upsetting her. She responded with, “If you write about me, I’ll sue you.” I explained that the “offensive story” was in the book I gave her three years ago and that she didn’t even notice. 

I’d never write about someone without their permission, not because I am being threatened with a lawsuit, but because I don’t want to hurt them.

Am I in danger from this deranged ex-friend from hell?


A – 

I am not an attorney and this is not legal advice. Please consult with an attorney for any legal questions you have. This is simply my opinion.

My first question is…why are you still friends with that person after she first threatened you with, “Get rid of it or else?”

Second, after she threatened you, why did you then tell her you went ahead and used her inspirational words as the catalyst for a short story years later?? I understand the need to be brutally honest with people (I am the exact same way) but…why did you put yourself in legal jeopardy by doing so, especially since it would not bring any harm to her at all?? Uggg….

Third, she said something that inspired you to write the story. The story is not about her. You simply used some words she said as inspiration. And, you wrote the story in first person and referred to yourself (“I”).

I can’t imagine any lawyer who would take a case like this – not even one of those slimy ones who file frivolous lawsuits.

I’d love to see the story in question.

In the meantime, don’t contact that person again. Nobody needs friends like that…especially writers! If she writes to you, ignore her. If she texts you, ignore her. If she calls you, ignore her. She’s probably just a drama queen who likes making other people miserable in order to get attention.

Only if you get a letter from an attorney should you respond and I seriously doubt you ever will.

Remember that engaging bullies feeds them. Every response gives them added incentive to keep bullying. I have found, over my two decades of exposing scammers, and receiving false threats from those bullies, that not responding to them is the best tactic. They eventually give up and seek out another victim.

If she wants to hire a lawyer, fine. Some lawyers take on ridiculous clients knowing they have a losing case. Only after billing them for dozens of hours will their sleazy client learn what a poor case they have (no case at all!). Let her rack up thousands in legal bills on a frivolous lawsuit. That’ll teach her a lesson.

It's a Dirty Job



Q –

Hi Angela,

Well, my book is on the market for a few months but it’s not selling. I really don’t know  how to promote a book, or anything for that matter. I just want to write but it would sure be nice to have some money coming in.

Should I cut the price of my book in half? Maybe that will spur some sales. What do you think?

– V.R. 


If a book isn’t being consistently promoted, it’s not likely to sell regardless of the price because people won’t know about the book. There are millions of books for sale on Amazon. There is simply too much competition and it’s doubtful people will stumble upon a book unless they’re searching for that specific book title. That’s why promotion is so important.

I know some authors think they can’t promote their own book but, the fact is, they CAN and the process can actually be FUN, and involves WRITING! Please see:

Q –

Angela—

I have a question. I’m getting a lot emails from book promotion sites like (name removed), (name removed), and (name removed). Are these legitimate sites? Do they really help sell books? Are they worth the money?

Thanks for your help.

Karen


A –

Those companies get on Amazon to find new books, and then use a search engine until they find the author’s contact info. They then start spamming the author repeatedly. Worse, if they find your phone number online, they’ll start calling you over and over again as well. And, even worse than that, if they can find your family members’ contact information online but not yours, they’ll spam or call them instead, asking for YOUR contact info. Many of them will pretend to be a traditional publisher to try to sound legitimate in their quest to get your info. so they can try to sell you their (crappy) services.

Avoid, avoid, avoid! If a so-called marketing company must resort to spamming and telemarketing to market their own services…that means their marketing tactics SUCK.

Your money would be far better spent elsewhere. Check out legitimate book marketing services RIGHT HERE.

Q – 

Hello Angela,

It appears that there are lots of book review sites online. One that caught my interest is (name removed). However, they’re going to charge me $1.50 for every person who downloads my ebook. The reviews get posted to Amazon later. Is it worth it? 

L.R.


A –

I do NOT recommend listing your ebook on that site. Why in the world should an author PAY people to read his or her book rather than the other way around? I checked out that site and anybody can sign up to review books there. So, they get free books and they may or may not write reviews for them. They could not read the entire book, and write a very short, fake review (that could even be negative). People can sign up with that site just to get free books and I bet many of them are doing just that! The site gets $1.50 each time one of their so-called reviewers downloads a copy. And, YOU have to pay for it.

What if hundreds of people download your file? You’ll have to pay $1.50 for each of them. And, how would you even know the site is being honest? It would be very easy for them to commit fraud with this type of scenario.

I’m having a hard time trying to think of a worse book review deal for authors. NEVER pay to have your book reviewed and certainly NEVER, EVER pay a website $1.50, or anything at all, for every copy of your ebook that they give away for free.

Q –

Hi Angela

If I decide to publish my memoir, what’s the bottom line on 1400 pages? Can it fit into one paperback volume?

D.S.


A –

At BookLocker, our limit is 1,050 pages but I wouldn’t recommend a book that large. It would be very cumbersome for readers to hold while reading, and expensive to purchase.

I recommend publishing it in two or three volumes. That not only makes it more palatable for readers in terms of size and price, but will also give you the opportunity to use the first book to promote the second and third. This is called a loss leader…though you don’t have to sell it at a “loss.”

One method that works very well for promoting subsequent books in a “series” is to offer the ebook for the first in the series for free on Amazon, or at a very low price, like 99 cents. Then, you can include ads for the second and third books in the first book.

We offer this service to authors who have published a series with BookLocker.

Make Sure Your Marketing is Targeted at the Right Audience



Q – 

Angela,

I hope you can help me!

My publisher charges $700 to design a professional cover. That’s in addition to the $1500 they charged to publish my book. I wanted to avoid that expense to I found a cover designer on that cheap website, (name removed). The designer did a fantastic job. It looks GREAT! I uploaded it to my publisher and they rejected it for several reasons I don’t understand. I don’t know what RGB and CMYK are. They said my cover was designed in MSWord (what’s wrong with that?). They said something about bleed and the front and back covers being different sizes. They said there must be a spine. Why can’t they add that for free? All of the hard work is finished already.

I’m very frustrated! I wanted my book finished by Christmas but now it seems like I’m right back and step one. Worse, my designer has disappeared. She stopped responding to my emails after telling me the job was “finished.” She charged me $150.

I’m attaching the covers she designed here. Is my publisher just trying to rip me off by forcing me to buy their design services?

M.P.


A –

You are one of many authors who have been sucked into the “cheap” freelance cover design industry. Anybody with a computer can start a virtual business, and pretend they know what they’re doing.

I looked at your files and your publisher is right. They can’t be used. What your designer did was a complete waste of time on her part, and a complete waste of money on your end. Everything your publisher said about the covers is correct.

RGB and CMYK are color modes used in graphic design. RGB looks better on a computer screen but CMYK is used for print. When you convert an RGB file to CMYK, the colors will change. Sometimes they’re barely noticeable while, at other times, they are glaringly apparent. For example, a rich blue cover on your computer screen might print in purple. Print covers must be designed in CMYK from the get-go so the author knows that what they’re seeing is how the cover will print.

MSWord is a horrible program to use for cover design. The files you sent to me are only 72 dpi. Files must be 300 dpi for printing. A professional graphics program is needed to create book covers for print publication. A hallmark sign that a cover has been designed in a word processing program is there is usually white space surrounding the actual cover (it’s on a “page” in the word processing program).

Bleed is also required. That’s the extra space around a file that allows the colors to extend past the trim lines. The printer will then cut off the extra at the trim-lines. Your files don’t have that.

Yes, your back and front covers are different sizes, which is bizarre. Also, there is no spine. When authors don’t buy cover design from their publishers, the cover must be submitted as one file only – back, spine, and front all together as one file, ready to print.

Sadly, there are also typos and missing spaces between words in your back cover description.

THE DANGERS OR ORDERING COVER DESIGN FROM YOUR PUBLISHER

Almost every print on demand publisher takes all rights to covers they design for their authors. (BookLocker does NOT take rights from authors under any circumstances.) Do NOT get stuck in this type of “forced marriage” with your publisher. To avoid this, find a real cover designer who has been vetted, and who knows the specs for the largest print on demand printer, which virtually all of these firms use. You can find that person RIGHT HERE. And, YOU will own ALL RIGHTS to the cover design YOU paid for.

Incidentally, you paid $1500 to your publisher + $150 to your cover designer. BookLocker would have only charged you $875 for the same job, and it would have included original cover design. And, of course, you would own all rights to your cover and interior print-ready files.

The Art and Craft of Writing and Editing


Writing is a constant dialogue between author and reader.



The craft of writing involves an interchange of emotions between an author and a reader. An author creates a story line, conflict, and characters, gives his characters words to speak, and then hands off these materials to a reader. This process results in a constant dialogue between the mental imagery produced by a reader and that proposed by the author.

Q –

I’ve been writing for on online publication for the past year, primarily for a column they run that features different people in our city.

I’m interested in taking my interviews and turning them into a book that features each person, especially the advice they’ve given as part of their interview.

Can I use those stories and turn them into my own book, or do those pieces belong to the magazine? I wouldn’t print those, but take my notes to create new pieces.

– J


A –

I’m not an attorney and this isn’t legal advice. Please contact an attorney with your specific questions. 

That said:

You’ll need to ask the magazine for a copy of your contract with them if you don’t still have it. If they didn’t give you a contract, tell them you’re planning to compile your interviews into a book. If you mention the magazine in the book, they probably won’t mind. Absent a work-for-hire contract, it’s highly doubtful they would be able to claim all rights to the work since you’re a contractor.
