Indie Authors and Creative Writing Exercises

3-28-2014 6-54-53 AM

I’ve put out a few tentative feelers regarding the Creative Writing Exercises book (no title yet) and have gotten some response from some of my favorite indie authors. Still hoping Hugh Howey will find my email among the stack of mail he receives and decide to join us, but hey, that’s what happens when your novel(s) goes viral! Good for Hugh!

Thank you to these indie authors for agreeing to contribute their advice and favorite exercises:

Sean Platt, co-author of Yesterday’s Gone, WhiteSpace, Z2134, Available Darkness, ForNevermore, and Monstrous

D.T. Dyllin, author of the P. J. Stone Gates Trilogy (Hidden Gates, Broken Gates, Open Gates)

Joseph Turkot, author of Black Hull, The Rain, The Snow, Neighborhood Watch, and the Darkin Saga

Susan Weidener, author of Again in a Heartbeat

Want to join us? We are looking for teachers and indie authors to contribute writing advice, self-publishing advice, and creative writing exercises in ALL writing genres.

See more details here.

Tentative deadline for submissions is May 2, 2014.

Indie authors with a great following will be offered equal share of the royalties. Space is LIMITED, so contact me soon!

All other authors and teachers will be compensated with a free digital copy of the book and a chance to market your work through this publication and Karenzo Media’s website.

About Karen Y. Hamilton

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
