    Why thank you! On both counts, but mostly on the latter. πŸ˜€

well, since u r looking for an agent ..have u thought about making ur own e-book before ?! u can publish a small novel as a beginning, and if people liked it -which looks very reasonable; looking through ur writings- then it will be very easy to talk with a publishing company, that if they didn’t ask about u first.
of course -and u probably know- that some e-books made a huge success, and even much more than some printed ones !

    I’ve given it some consideration, but I decided I would rather go the more traditional way of publishing for now. I don’t buy e-books or own a Kindle or Nook, and while I know releasing my book as an e-book would be a logical decision at some point, I would prefer to start by looking for an agent and hopefully securing a contract that way for print publication. Also, my primary project right now is a trilogy that I think is much better suited to print, and I don’t have anything that would serve as an introductory small novel to publish as an e-book. It is an idea, though!

You’re first attempt at a novel was at age 9? Talk about ambition!

I’ve only recently begun my hobby of writing. I was reading through some of your posts about “The 25” and I have to say it was a great read!

Good luck with your trilogy (and NaNoWriMo)!

    Yeah, I’ve always been verbally precocious. πŸ™‚

    November 10, 2011 | 10:45 pm


      Also, thank you very much! I am very glad you’ve enjoyed them.

      November 10, 2011 | 10:46 pm


Love the pictures and captions you’ve used to accompany things too, they’re hilarious!

    Pleased to oblige! Randomness is my sparkly unicorn.

Hello Emmie, thank you for all of your wonderful posts. You are on my top favourite 15 blogs listed here: http://everedwater.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/versatile-blogger-award/ Hope you don’t mind my nomination as I see you’ve all ready been awarded it! Keep up the good work, and I look forward to reading more!

Best wishes,

December 12, 2011 | 12:48 pm



    Thank you kindly for the nomination! I will do a proper post for that a wee bit later today or tomorrow. I was quite surprised and feel very honoured! Thank you!

      Hope you don’t mind! I always enjoy reading your posts – it’s well deserved πŸ™‚

      December 12, 2011 | 4:11 pm


I listed you as one of my fifteen recently found blogs in my acceptance of the Versatile Blogger Award – thus giving you the award, too – again! I view it as an opportunity to let people know about blogs they might not have found otherwise. And your blog is one I definitely enjoy following. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for your comments on my blog. That’s so sad about half your friends having c-sections. More often than not, they are “medically necessary” because of all the medical interference – like inducing labor, pitocin, and epidurals. If you have all of things, your chances of needing major abdominal surgery just skyrocketed. I don’t understand why women don’t understand this, but I do my best to teach it.

Good luck with your writing and perusal of publishing. It will happen one day!

You have been followed. As a fellow blogger/writer (I write fiction of all sorts), I figured we should come together in packs and protect each other from those who wish to destroy us… like Stephanie Meyer.

    Pack heard!

    If there’s anything I learned at my conference this weekend, it’s that it’s quite nice to be a part of the pack. πŸ˜€

Hi Emmie: it is always a pleasure to read your interesting pages.

Wait…you WON NanoWrimo? My friend just self published a book that started out as a NanoWriMo novel, but I believe it took her 2 years to finish. Congrats! That’s awesome!

March 22, 2012 | 1:23 pm

    Emmie Mears

    That just means I got to 50,000 words. πŸ™‚ They don’t judge the novels; you just win by finishing. But yep! I did finish last year. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for following my blog! Welcome to the flock! πŸ˜€

    March 22, 2012 | 1:27 pm


      Oh, I see. LOL. Well, congrats on that, too. The only “novel” I ever wrote was accidentally trashed when my dad decided to clean out his floppies (and yes, that is 5″ floppy, it was THAT long ago)

      March 22, 2012 | 1:30 pm

        Emmie Mears

        Pahahaha…that is awesome! I recall those days…my first laptop took floppy disks. My children will likely never know what those even are. *Sniffle*

Being a language major, I’m assuming you’ve read the Necronomicon?

May 15, 2012 | 4:19 pm

    I was actually a history major, but I haven’t read the Necronomicon — it’s on my list though!
