Atta girl! this would make you stronger!
Atta girl. True character shows, especially when it’s needed!
Thanks Rob, Over the last week I’ve learned so much about perserverance and the writing /publishing process. I could almost write a book on it. LOL. Karen :))
Thanks Rob, I’m pulling together every strand of my Willpower to keep going with this manuscript. I can Rewrite Me and Her. I can keeping fighting for it to be Published …Karen :))
Hi Karen. How exciting but see I told you it was only a matter of time before your brilliance was recognised . Hang in there cousin and know that you have such support from family and friends which ever side of the Tasman we are on!!
Hi Cuz, Thanks for that Rap and all your support. Karen xx
Thanks Susanne. I’m kinda proud/ kinda embarrassed … being in the Top 100. But every step leads … to publishing. Karen :))
Loved the Blog about Crime Writers and the profiles.
We are a group of Happy Little Vegemites!

Hi Jan, I’m really proud of our group’s achievements. And still we remain a very happy, relaxed group of writers … Thanx for that Fabulous quote … very inspirational. Cheers, Karen :))
thanks for replying. yes i would be interested in the newsletters. congratulations on your successes.
Hi Cat, Thanks for dropping by. Thanks for the congratulations, much appreciated. I’ll send you the latest newsletter this morning. Cheers, Karen :))
Good Morning Karen,
Last Saturday I was fortunate to meet Kev and Anthony at their book signing in A&R Helensvale. They gave me some helpful advice about publishing as I have just finished my first Kid’s book. They suggested I attend this Saturday’s meeting at Springwood Coffee Club. Will this be Ok with the group? I would very much like to have network with like minded passionate writers!
Please let me know at the above email address if it is Ok for me to participate. I live and work on the Coast, not in the Logan area.
This group is supposed to be for Logan Writers to raise the profile of Writing in Logan. But a few have slipped in if they used to live in Logan, or they work in Logan. So I’m unsure how to answer you. Are you a member of the Gold Coast Writers Association? Gold Coast library runs many writing groups too. By all means come to the Coffee Club but I can’t promise you anymore at this stage. Cheers, Karen :))
This is an awesome website! I pray you get a publisher because I want to READ everything.
I too am a writer, but I’ll never write the GAN (Great American Novel). I really love to write though. It helps me keep things in perspective.
So glad we are friends on FB!
Thanks Pam, I’m glad we’ve met and connected. We seem to have more and more in common. Good luck with your writing too. Cheers, Karen :)) PS Trying like crazy to get this book Published !!
Hi Karen how are the letters going? Hope things are continuing to go well for you and that you will have a publisher soon. Feel sure that one of them will recognise the talent you obviously have!

Hi Karen, I’m trying my hardest to find a Publisher. There’s a Special One out there for Me. Just waiting to connect … Karen :))
We spoke on the phone on thursday afternoon regarding the volunteer marketing/writing opportunities with the organisation.
Would you mind getting in touch (phone or email) again as I never got your contact details.
Thanks Mitchell, for speaking to me yesterday. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind regards, Karen :))
Hi Jan, It’s been a busy month and its only half-way through. Hope you’ll be able to attend the Logan Art Gallery EXPO on the 31st July, 2-4pm …Karen :))

I don’t meet strangers in face-to-face meetings. If you are a Writer, a Reader or interested in mental health issues you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My contact details are at the top of the contact page. cheers, Karen :))
Yay, indeed, on the funding, Karen – well-done. Drinks are on you 🙂
Hi David, I didn’t want to tell you I didn’t get the Arts Queensland grant. Just hoped and prayed Logan council would come through. And they did:))

Thanks Karen, The festival is going beautifully. Hope this venture brings good luck and new challenges for everyone…Karen :))
Hi Karen, I met you at the Logan Writers Expo at Logan North Library last Saturday. Could you please email me some info. on how to join the Logan Writers Group and any other relevant information for a beginner article writer. I tried emailing you but it did not go through. Thanks, Diane Tait
Thanks for contacting me. Been busy today sorting out a media interview. I’ll be emailing you soon with info. Cheers, Karen :))
What great news that you may have a publishing deal for not one but three books! I always knew that you would succeed it is just a matter of time and I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you. Lots of luck

Hi Cuz Karen,
I have one Kids Sci-fi book completed, the next nearly done and a third one planned. Its up to the publisher and the universe to act next …Karen :))
Just checked out the website. So proud of you Karen. It takes guts to put yourself out there. Good luck with the publishing.
What a a lovely surprise to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words of support. Take care xx. Karen :))
2010 May not have been as successful as you had hoped but there were certainly highs and lows. Getting your first publication published can not be an easy task you only have to look at how many of today’s major players struggled to get something published initially. Stick with it I feel sure that it is only a matter of time, banging on doors and not giving up that will make you succeed. Be the writer that constantly is on the phone, sending mails and eventually you must be listened to.
All the very best for 2011 make this your year.Stay focused and keep those fingers tapping.
Thanks Karen, for your positive optimism and all your loyal support. I KNOW 2011 will be the Year for me …Karen :))
Fantastic news regarding the overseas publisher as I said earlier this had to be your year. E mail me with all the details so pleased for you.
Thanks Cuz Karen. One of the biggest publishers in the world is keen on my Kids Sci-Fi book. Its such an incredible feeling :))
Hi Karen, I’m an Admin on the Facebook Mental Health Page and a fellow bi-plar sufferer.
I would very much like to read your memoir/subscribe. Look forward to hearing from you!
A Publisher is considering my memoir now. Hope to hear something soon. Would you like me to send out my FREE monthly ME AND HER mental health newsletter? (150 words)
With positive strategies on recovery and wellness? I can add you on the email list. Please let me know … Karen xx
