  1. Jo-Anne,
    What a lovely story. I’m happy to see that you are able to devote your time to writing. I’m sure that you will get published just keep writing. Someone will catch your story and want to publish it. 🙂 We both will be published writers soon enough. 🙂

  2. wow. nice blog. keep writing! don’t give up on your dreams to get those books pubished.

  3. I found you on Edgy Christian Fiction Lovers and linked over to your website. I hope it’s okay with you if I link you to my website. I know other writers (including myself) who will benefit from the knowledge you are posting. Thank you, by the way, for taking the time to post it. It’s nice to hear what other writers are going through. 🙂

    • I’m thrilled you have posted my blog site on your site. Just knowing I can share my wealth of knowledge and personal experiences with other fellow writers, makes me feel so warm and fuzzy.

      Posting takes time, but I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t love it.

  4. Hi, Jo-Anne,

    Great life story, glad you are doing well. Is this where I comment to receive your tips on building an author platform? If so, I’m ready to receive.

    You might want to check my website, which has one blog on it.

    I’ve just started a new blog, YourShelfLife.com, which is about increasing your shelf life-–personally and in terms of the life of your work. The first post is up and I’m going to begin blogging in earnest after the 1st. I’d love a reciprocal link to your blog. I think we’re working on the same things.

    All the best to you, and Happy New Year!

    Sandy

    • Happy New Year Sandy;

      Sounds like you’ve got some goals. A vision is a great way to start the New Year. I’ll be checking out everyone’s blog once things on this one dies down
      (not that I’m complaining… ).
      Commenting on other blogs will increase traffic back to your own. As far as linking mine with yours, you are welcome to list my blog site on yours, but I’m going to pass right now on listing yours on mine. Perhaps once you’re up and established you could ask me again.

      Jo-Anne

  5. Hi Jo-Anne. Good luck with finding an agent.Not an easy task. I know.
    Have a great 2009 and will post a link to you on my own blog.

    Stan Rogers.

    • Hi Stan;

      Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

      I’d like to check out your blog. Please post your site address for us. Thanks

      Jo

  6. Hi Jo.
    My new blog is at http://wordyrappinghood.wordpress.com
    Hope the new year goes well for you my friend.

    All the best.
    Stan.

  7. An absolute waterfall of information! Well done :^)

    As others have stated, “Thank You” so much for all the great info. I’m embarking on my own promotional campaign and every little bit of advice helps keeps some wind in the sails.

    I’d like to add you to my blogroll as well. My blog can be found at http://avomnia.wordpress.com. There’s also a link to my website from there as well.

    I’ll be checking back often!

    Sincerely,
    J.W. Nicklaus

  8. Hi Jo-Ann,

    Thanks for the info about your trip to Cuba…We are definitely going to do it. I’ll be watching for more on the trip…Please keep me posted.

    Best,

    Bill

  9. Jo-Anne, what an amazing and inspiring story. Isn’t it wonderful to pursue your passion? I’m a writer too and I love this creative journey.

  10. My fellow on Orkut shared this link with me and I’m not dissapointed at all that I came to your blog.

    • Why, thank you. What a nice thing to say.

      Make sure you send a huge wave over to your friend on Orkut…tell him spreading this gossip is awesome…:). >Jo cheers: “More, more, more.”<

    • Defining your niche was probably one of the most difficult things for me to discover. I always seem to know what I don’t want, but I don’t always know what I want. Because I’ve gone through some drastic changes in my life over the last few years, I had to really look at myself. I needed to point at the specific area of strengths and what I could actually offer to the world. God has given me so many gifts, now what does he want me to really do?

      When viewers are searching for a blog, they want to read along a fairly specific topic. Some blogs are all over the place. Mine was, to begin with; until I discovered my niche. Do you know who lead me to my niche? My readers and followers. This I truly thank you. There’s nothing better than finding an identity.

  11. Dear Jo-Anne,
    It’s been ages since I looked at your blog/site/all. Congratulations for all your hard work. It looks like it’s paid off for you. I lost all my work (two novels and a book of poetry) in a computer snafu that corrupted my laptop and also corrupted my separate back-up hard drive. So, I had to go back to the drawing board and use old drafts to catch up to where I’d been. I’ve also had a lot of personal family things going on – too numerous to bore you with – and that’s been hard too. I think I will try to use the site I set up for myself again and start developing a “presence on the internet” as C. Hope Clark advises as I get up to speed again. Will you be at the Muse Online Writers Conference this year? I will. Hope to see you there. Verona Murray

    • Hi Verona;

      Was wondering where you’ve been. Sounds like it’s your turn for some good luck for a change. I’ll send some vibes your way.

      I’m all registered and have my workshops and chats picked for the Muse Conference. But…suddenly…my book bloomed and will be printed at the same time. It’s published and I should have the physical copy in my hands this week. EEEKKKK…YEAH…..YEEEHAAAAA…. yes, I’m excited…lol. I’m now busy planning my actual and virtual book tour. Yet I do plan on stopping in at the Muse. See yeah there.

  13. I salute you. Your “never give up” attitude is wonderful.

  14. Hi Jo-Anne,
    Have you ever written your story as a book? I was commissioned by Hodder & Stoughton some years ago to write the story of a lady who had a brain tumour and who, though she became wheel-chair bound, went on to write books of poetry. Her courage and faith were an inspiration to many. The book, Healed Within, is out of print, but I still have copies.

    I wish you well with your writing / publishing enterprise. God bless,
    Mel Menzies

    • Hi Mel;

      Thank you for responding on this blog. I always enjoy reading feedback from readers.
      I do write fiction that has characters very close to what I’ve gone through. Perhaps when I’m famous (lol), I’ll write a biography that others will want to read.

      Blessings to you.

  17. Hi Jo-Anne,

    Well, I have finally found someone whose journey to writing is similar to mine. I taught International Languages in secondary school and college. I left teaching due to illness and my book was published this past December.I also write for online and print publications and love what I do.

    All best to you!

  18. Oh my God, Jo-Anne, I can so relate to your physical challenge, having a condition called ‘pudendal neuralgia’ myself and still living with it since July 09! Not many people have heard of this illness, but it’s basically a compressed nerve deep in the pelvis that brings on the most horrible pain all over the pelvic floor; you can’t sit for long; and it can affect the function of organs such as bladder and bowel. I won’t go into any more details, because there isn’t any point in going on about it.

    Needless to say, I have been through the depression, the ‘wanting to die’ phase, the pain, tears, panic attacks, you name it and I think you and I have had it 🙂
    I’m doing better now, after months of physical therapy. There is surgery for this but they don’t recommend it as only a handful of doctors know about it and the outcome isn’t that good. Besides, I believe in the body healing itself. My inner self and I have finally made a strong connection (it only took me over a year to do this), and now I am beginning to let go of the fear and I’m taking more control of my life.

    Well, that’s a little about me that I wanted to share. I think what you do is great, and overcoming the obstacles is what it’s all about, isn’t it?

    Hope to connect with you soon.

    Love, Sylvia (Sydney, Australia)

  22. Great life story, great. Thank you.

  23. […] In 2010, how will you perceive the social media? If you’re new to blogging and involving yourself in the social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you do have a choice on how to handle this new form or tool of marketing. Your choice breaks down to your reactions to technology. You can either run-away in fear, pretend it doesn’t exist, or just grab the bull by the horns and hold on tight. You can jump on this new fast craft and *conquer all obstacles*. All it takes is a change of attitude. Perception is HUGE.  Isn’t it time to see the glass ½ full rather than ½ empty? Let’s make 2010, the year of opportunity! A year to market you and your books. You’re a newbie? Don’t worry. There are a lot of us out here who were exactly where you are today or have been recently been there. We can relate. We remember what it was like to start our first blog, to make our first 140 character twitter announcement, and to create our first profile on Facebook. Like writing, begin with the rough draft. Don’t worry about your punctuation. If you forget to fill out all the blanks in your social media profile or ½ your message gets cut-off when twittering, there are reminders and second chances. Your second draft will be a lot better than the first. Whenever I’m scared, I ask myself: What’s the worse that can happen? AND… Is it life-threatening? If you don’t put anything down on paper, you’ll never write that story. Open up that first social media network and fill-out your profile. Don’t know something…heck, don’t worry about it, there are plenty within this community who are waiting to help those who appear stranded. Reach out and click the mouse that hovers over a member and request a friendship. Just reading that person’s profile has sparked some sort of interest your way. And that’s it! You’ve begun your journey into marketing-using the social media. Positive attitude goes a long way. It will show in your voice—the articles you write, and even in the short bursts of communication. Staying positive is one of the secrets in producing quality blogs. Why Start a Blog? A blog establishes authority—an expert on a particular subject matter.  A blog is your home base and will become your identity and place of presence. Writing posts about your passion will come easily. If you’re struggling or dreading this task, chances are you haven’t discovered your true niche. It may be time to switch gears and take a self-inventory, asking yourself what you love doing the most. How do I Create Quality Posts or Valuable Content? –          Create articles around topics of your passion. Sell each post within the first paragraph. Like your story, it’s imperative to hook the reader from the first sentence or paragraph. –          Stay positive and use a balance between informative and conversational language styles. –          Produce posts that contain useful, intelligent, and newsworthy content. –          Promote others using quotes with direct reference (if you can, use links). Others will appreciate the ‘mentions’ and your post will become stronger with the proven backed-up facts. –          Do NOT be afraid to ask for help – again, a win-win situation –          Spend extra time researching—educating yourself. Read, read (oh and did I say…read?). –          Become a two-way blogger – become the viewer and comment on other blogs. The blogger will appreciate your following and other lurkers will read your response, become curious and may direct themselves back to your profile where your blog link is located. Soon after you push that publish button, some of your viewers will contact you by responding to your post—positive interaction has begun. (Remember there will be many, many lurkers or viewers who’ll read your post but will not respond right away—but they’re out there, watching, reading everything you write). Your viewers will begin to share your name and quality content with others. Bingo! You have now graduated into the current of social media—marketing you and your books.
