Writing Conferences 2015 – Part 2

Writing Conferences 2015 – Part 2 As promised, here’s is a list author events for the second half of 2015. I’ve also asked the Divas give me their recommendations for writing conferences and author events in their area for July – December of 2015.

Please see Writing Conferences 2015 – Part 1 for additional events in June and anything you might want to catch last minute in April or May. I’ve limited this list to U. S. events. I regret that I don’t have the manpower or time to compile a list that includes events for authors outside the U.S., but Shaw Guides has a comprehensive list of author events across the globe. Check out their site. As always, if you know of an event I’ve overlooked or want to add an international event to this post, please add them in the comments to share with others.

Divas Chat: Writing Tropes

Posted by on Sep 10, 2014 in Diva Chat | 4 comments

Divas Chat: Writing Tropes

Being editors, the Divas notice writing tropes, whether it’s in the manuscripts we edit or the books we read. I asked each of the Divas to write a bit about their least favorite writing tropes and why they don’t like them. Please keep in mind that these are the personal preferences of the Divas. There will be just as many readers, authors, and editors out there who love loves these writing tropes as hate them. No offense is intended by this. These are simply our personal opinions. Diva Janine I’m not a big fan of alpha males. I’m probably in the minority here, but that’s never bothered me before and I doubt it will now. Ha-ha! I don’t want you to confuse my dislike for the alpha male with the strong male lead who can take charge, treat those around him with respect while putting people in their place when needed, or hand over the reins to someone else. When I say alpha male, I’m talking about the possessive male protagonist who lashes out at the female protagonist because he can’t control his “reaction” to her. The male protagonist who likes to taunt the female protagonist and make her angry because he likes the fire in her eyes. The male protagonist who constantly puts the female protagonist in her place, wins every argument, and make her “beg” for it. Call me a feminist if you like, but these types of one-sided power struggles never appealed to me. Personally, I don’t find it romantic, and I often wonder why the female protagonist puts up with so much crap. No one is that good in the sack. Seriously, by a show of hands, how many people feel like putting out for someone who’s constantly pushing the anger button? I can’t imagine wanting to spend the rest of my life with that jerk. I guess it offends my sense of fair play and the idea that couples should actually be compatible, equally matched, and respect each other. That being said, if the alpha male in a story can at least atone for his behavior in the end without turning into a complete milquetoast, all is not lost. There are actually a few books I’ve read that have handled the alpha male quite admirably, and those books have earned a spot on my favorites list simply because of the way the author handled the alpha male stereotype. Diva Jen Why I hate cliffhangers. Also known as where’s my happy ending? If I’m buying a book, I want the whole story. Period. Most of what I read is romance, so yeah, I’m looking for that happily ever after. There’s very little that will piss me off more than creeping closer to the end of a really good book and realizing “Oh, for the love of Pete, there’s going to be a cliffhanger. Just shoot me now.” I get why some authors do it, I really do. Build up the suspense, keep those readers coming back for more, establish a fan base of junkies who need a fix—well, maybe not that extreme. But I think it’s pretty fair to say authors want to keep their readers coming back. But it’s a little misleading to draw readers into your world, make them love your world, and leave ’em hanging. But let’s not confuse cliffhangers with series. I love a good series. Revisiting with old friends, the world-building that happens in a good series, and details, interwoven story lines, and characters… sign me up. In a series, there’s an individual story arc in each book with a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Most cliffhangers end somewhere around the end of the middle or the climax, and readers are left to read the ending or resolution in another book. Which doesn’t really make for a very good second book, in most cases, because what else happens? Filler? Fluff? All the good stuff already happened. The funny thing about this is if you know me at all, you know I read fan fiction. Which is, in essence, chapter after chapter...

Diva Chat: Kindle Unlimited

Diva Chat: Kindle Unlimited

With the start of Amazon’s new program Kindle Unlimited, I asked the Divas to weigh-in on the pros and cons. For those not in the know, Amazon rolled out Kindle Unlimited, a subscription e-book service. For $9.99 a month, subscribers receive unlimited access to participating e-books and audiobooks listed on Amazon. I asked the Divas to answer the following questions: How will it impact the indie book industry? How will it impact readers? Is it a good idea? Is it a bad idea? And why. Janine Savage On the surface, this looks like a great deal for the reader, but when you take a closer look, it’s not as good a deal as one would think. Let’s look at the price: $9.99 a month. That comes to almost $120 a year. When compared to Amazon Prime at $99 a year, which includes 1 free e-book a month, the Lending Library, streaming videos and free two-day shipping on Amazon orders, Kind Unlimited doesn’t look as bright and shiny. But what if you read more than one book per month? You’ve got me there, but unless you limit your reading to the self-published and indie markets, you’re not going to get access to as many of the best-selling published authors as you’d expect. Why? The Big Five publishers are not participating. That means anything published by Penguin Random House, Macmillan, HarperCollins, Hachette and Simon & Schuster will not be part of the subscription. That’s a lot of books. Add to that authors who don’t want to participate (we’ll talk about why in a minute), and the catalog of books available for Kindle Unlimited doesn’t seem as all-inclusive anymore. On the plus side, you’re not locked into the service for a year like Amazon Prime. You can cancel at any time if you’re not satisfied, plus there’s a 30-day free trial period. From the author side of the program, it may or may not be a better deal. Authors certainly won’t make as much money per book with Kindle Unlimited. However, if you are an author who typically lists your books for free or $0.99, you might see a small increase in profits. The issue here is that if you enroll in Kindle Unlimited, you cannot sell your books anywhere else. KDP does the same thing, but it has a time limit of three months, so after that, authors can sell their books wherever they want. Not so with Kindle Unlimited. My advice for authors is to do your research before you sign up for Kindle Unlimited. Simple logic will tell you that $9.99 a month split between a bunch of authors means less money per author, because you know Amazon is going to take the bigger piece of the money pie, if not now, then certainly later when they control a bigger part of the market.  There’s a reason the Big Five opted out of this program. Aside from the obvious fact that Amazon wants to rule the publishing world, I suspect much of it has to do with the bottom line. Most who publish, whether traditional, indie or a self-published, are ruled by profits. So ask yourself why the Big Five said no, see if the reasons are sound, and if they apply to your situation. Jen Matera I gotta tell you—I was intrigued. I read a lot, and I’m always on the lookout for a bargain, so it sounded good. $9.99 isn’t that much, not really. When you multiply it by twelve, it’s a different story, but let’s not go there yet. For now, I’m just a reader. I’ll be an author later. Almost everything I read is in electronic format. Not that I have anything against print books; actually, I love print books. I’m not normally a repeat reader, though, so buying the print book just isn’t fiscally responsible, in my opinion. And while I understand the price points around e-books, I tend to buy them when they’re on sale—so less than $3.99 each. When you add that all up, on the surface this might sound like a good deal… but still I hesitate. I...
