Kathi Kamen Goldmark’s first novel, And My Shoes Keep Walking Back to You, earned praise from an assortment of well-known authors including Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, Scott Turow, Judy Collins, Rita Mae Brown, Carl Hiaasen, and Roddy Doyle; and received positive reviews in O, the Oprah Magazine, the Miami Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, and other publications. Completed shortly before her untimely death from breast cancer, Goldmark’s Her Wild Oats is a honky-tonk road story about two unlikely pals: A smart young woman, Arizona Rosenblatt, leaves home and her role as assistant to a high-powered Hollywood executive when she discovers her husband is having an affair with a woman from Jews for Jesus; and thirteen-year-old Otis Ray “Wild Oats” Pixlie, boy genius harmonica player. In the end, Otis Ray learns what it means to be an adult, Arizona discovers the life she wants, and they both figure out the true meaning of love and family.

There's a mantra that real writers know but wannabe writers don’t. And the secret phrase is this: NOBODY WANTS TO READ YOUR SH*T. Recognizing this painful truth is the first step in the writer's transformation from amateur to professional. From Chapter Four: “When you understand that nobody wants to read your shit, you develop empathy. You acquire the skill that is indispensable to all artists and entrepreneurs—the ability to switch back and forth in your imagination from your own point of view as writer/painter/seller to the point of view of your reader/gallery-goer/customer. You learn to ask yourself with ev­ery sentence and every phrase: Is this interesting? Is it fun or challenging or inventive? Am I giving the reader enough? Is she bored? Is she following where I want to lead her?

The Only One Thing You Need to Finish Your Book. Write. Yes, that's it. Just write. Write every day, as much as you can. Keep a notebook by your bedside so you can write down inspired dreams. Keep another pocket-sized notebook with you at all times so you can write any time you come up with something that should be in that book. Set up an area where you can write daily without being disturbed. Some people write after the kids are asleep. One author came to work two hours early in order to write in an empty office. Another wrote during his two-hour commute, with noise-canceling headphones. Regardless, you have to start writing. Today. Every day. Don't skip a day. No excuses. Because when you write, you make progress. If you don't write, you don't make progress. Books don't write themselves. You don't want to die with a book still inside you. (Well, most people don't, if given the option.) Write. Write daily. Write as much as you can. When you're done writing, start editing. If you find something is missing while you're editing, then stop editing and start writing. When you're done, then start editing again. Once you're done writing and editing both, then get someone else to proof it. Correct your errors, and self-proof it again. Then send it out to someone else to proof again. It doesn't have to be perfect. But it does need to get written. If it's longer than 2500 words, you can publish it on Amazon. Some people call it a short story. But if that's all the longer your book is, then it's a book. That brings up another thing: Quit comparing yourself to anyone else. That just messes up your head. You're an individual, so is everyone else. No two people are the same. No two authors write the same book (not any honest authors, anyway.) Your point is to write, then edit, then proof, then publish. If you want to write another book after that point, then start again. But you'll never get to your second book until you finish your first one. And if you only have a single book in you, that's fine. Most people do. But you have to live your own life. "Begin with the end in mind." said Socrates. So start writing already. (From Chapter 3) Get Your Copy Now.

Writers talk about their work in many ways: as an art, as a calling, as a lifestyle. Too often missing from these conversations is the fact that writing is also a business. The reality is, those who want to make a full- or part-time job out of writing are going to have a more positive and productive career if they understand the basic business principles underlying the industry. The Business of Being a Writer offers the business education writers need but so rarely receive. It is meant for early-career writers looking to develop a realistic set of expectations about making money from their work or for working writers who want a better understanding of the industry. Writers will gain a comprehensive picture of how the publishing world works—from queries and agents to blogging and advertising—and will learn how they can best position themselves for success over the long term. Jane Friedman has more than twenty years of experience in the publishing industry, with an emphasis on digital media strategy for authors and publishers. She is encouraging without sugarcoating, blending years of research with practical advice that will help writers market themselves and maximize their writing-related income. It will leave them empowered, confident, and ready to turn their craft into a career.
