Message:Do you think I'm good enough to get published though?

Message:Conor:

Times are very hard in the publishing world.

But, nowadays, a more exciting prospect has opened up where you can self-publish to e-book - either through Amazon for a Kindle, or as an app for an ipad. I know very little about either - except that some people have started like this and ended up selling a million copies - usually started up by selling the books free or for something very small and then increasing the price as they became more popular.
I know even less about 'apps'.

But if you have access to a computer you can find out about these things - I think it might be an ideal way for teenagers to start in the world of books - after all they must know, better than adults, what appeals to their age group.

Message:Taiane: That's horrible - to lose a piece of work on the computer - very discouraging. The best thing is to start re-writing as fast as possible while it is in your head. That works better than you would think.

Yes, you will be able to get 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend' on Amazon - also 'Debutantes'.

I don't think that you would like 'The London Murder Mysteries' as much as 'Debutantes'.

Message:Hey, I sent you a couple of more parts of my story. Also, of what you've read so far, do you think I could get published when I finish this story, in a year or so? also, what are the steps one takes to get published and what does it cost? Thanks, Cora!

Message:Hey, Cora!
I miss you!
Meu computador parou de funcionar e eu perdi uma parte que eu tinha escrito e agora eu não sei tudo o que tinha escrito... :(
Eu tive várias ideias para escrever outros livros.
Vou perguntar de novo à editora se vão publicar "Jane Austen stole my boyfriend" e, é claro, "Debutantes". Será que "The London Murder Mysteries" vão ser publicados também?? Queria muito lê-los! Mas, se nenhum deles forem publicados aqui, vou comprá-los em inglês mesmo. Dá pra comprar pela Amazon?
Kisses,
Taiane.

Message:How do you do? Writing a lot? I'm trying to write but it's being difficult to me...
But I have some ideas to write... Uma é sobre uma menina que recebe uma carta de uma desconhecida, mas ela vai descobrir que não é uma desconhecida :) (Mas não vou contar mais sobre, se não estraga a surpresa!).
E a outra é escrever a história da Jane Austen, só que nos dias de hoje. O que acha? Teria que pesquisar muito, mas acho que valeria a pena. Well, my vacation is coming and I'll try to message you more!

Message:But hard work, too. Starting a book is easier than finishing it - well, no, i think the hardest bit is when you are three-quarters of the way through. The last quarter, if you have planned your book, is like coasting downhill on bicycle.

Message:I wanted to be an author when I was your age, Niamh.
And then I forgot all about it and just revived my ambition after retiring from being a headteacher in a school in England.
It was my son-in-law who set up my website - he's a professional - but I wouldn't have a clue as to how it is done.
Perhaps some teacher could help you.

Message:That's a wonderful story, Conor.

re copyright, recently someone asked to have a story taken off the Story Club - one that was written about ten years ago. With a huge amount of work I managed to track it down (and I wouldn't want to have to do that again), but even when I had deleted it from the Story Club it still appeared under that person's name in Google - that's if he put in his name and the name of the story. There is nothing that I can do about Google.

Message:Minnie: I'm afraid that I have no idea of how books get to online stores - my publishers handle all of that.
I like your idea for a new story - the fairground will make a very colourful backdrop to the action.

Niamh: No, sorry, I have no idea of how you set up a website. I don't do any of that, myself.

Message:Hello Cora! I finally have my mitts on Debutantes!! I hadn't been into a book shop in a while, but I was on a spending spree, and was looking for your book. I saw it on the top shelf, grabbed it. Then paid for it and practically sprinted home to read it!! I must say you don't disappoint!! This is lots different to I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend but it's just as good!! I like Daisy's strong spirit. Would you be tempted to make a series out of this? I haven't read the ending yet! :)
By the way, a question: how do online shops get a hold of your book copies? What do they have to do to get them, or do they just buy them and sell them on? I am thinking over a piece of writing to send you in the meantime
Have a great day!! :)

Of course, Jenny, as a married woman, could then be Jane's chaperon!

Message:River-Ocean:
Make me a list of your favourite books and I'll see what I can do.
However, as I think I've said, your librarian or teacher might be of more help. Though I write books for young adults I tend not to read too much of the genre - I can't like vampires!
At the moment I am rereading some Georgette Heyer Regency romances - very light, very charming, very witty and so relaxing!
