Let’s Talk Successful Self-Publishing with Author Ashley Fontainne

Hi all, Camille Faye here. A few weeks ago I presented at a writing conference in the Ozarks where I met a very successful self-published author named Ashley Fontainne. What do I mean by successful? THREE of her books have been optioned to become movies and readers have downloaded hundreds of thousands of copies of her books. Her new book, Blood Ties, just came out so she’ll share some info about […]

Creative Characterization with Author Jan Morrill

How often do you stare at a blank screen, pulling your hair out, gritting your teeth as you curse your muse? Maybe you’ve even crossed over into guzzling coffee (or martinis?) because you can’t figure out what to write next? It used to happen far too often with me.

We love strong women here on The Lit Ladies blog, so much so that we’re hosting a “Woman Power Week.” Be sure to check out this week’s other posts about other fabulous women writers. As it turns out, […]

The Wildwater Walking Club by Claire Cook

Since it’s Woman Power Week, one of my favorite woman authors is Claire Cook. This is because I love her books, but I also love her. She exemplifies the true meaning of practice what you preach and being grateful for where she is in life. I met her for the first time at the Missouri Writers Guild conference in St. Louis, MO in 2012 when she gave a keynote speech […]

Women Power Week Give Away: Nina Amir’s The NonFiction Book Proposal Demystified

Happy Monday! I’m excited to begin the Lit Ladies’ Women Power Week. As Spirit Lady mentioned in the kick-off post, we started our blog as a way to share our truths with others. So, it’s appropriate that our first spotlight this week is Nina Amir, an author, editor and life coach, who helps writers tell their stories, their own truths. Nina is the author of six books, including the bestselling […]

Welcome to Woman Power Week!

This week we’re going to do something special on The Lit Ladies blog. We are no strangers to honoring women writers on this site, but we thought it would be cool to run an entire week of posts highlighting the work of women authors so that each day you’ll read about a new author and her work. When we started this blog in 2013, we had the intention of showing how […]
