    Thank you so much for leaving copies of your books. Was just about to order them, cleaned laundry room and found them. Thank you so much. This is Grandpa’s Farm in Richmond, Indiana.

    • Pamela says:

      You are so welcome. Thanks for accommodating our late arrival and seeing us safely to our site! I hope you enjoy them — let me know!

    Hi! Wanted to let you know that I saw your RV parked at the post office in Savannah this afternoon and the Hot Flashes and Half Ironman caught my eye (my daughter-in-law is an Ironman). So, being nosey as I am, when I came back out I took a picture of your sign and sent it to Meredith. When I came home I visited your site and found that ya’ll really have a lot in common; she’s an attorney, triathlete, and writer also. Small world. Thanks!

    She’s Meredith Atwood, aka Swim-Bike-Mom. Both her personal page and Swim-Bike-Mom are on Facebook. Give her a shout – I know she would love to hear from you.

    I just came across an article you were interviewed for in ADDitude. I immediately opened it when I read the title of “Dual Diagnosis…” My son, 9, has ADHD and Asperger’s. I just ordered your book and I can’t wait to read it. It’s been quite a journey in unchartered waters so I’m hoping to get some insight! Thanks so much for publishing this!

    Hi Pamela Paula Margulies sent me your odessy story. I love it. I am an author and founder of the Alaska Writers Guild. I would like to spread your book tour story around to authors who are friends and acquaintances of mine so that they can have something to compare themselves up to as far as effort is concerned.

    Another author friend of mine, Frank Howard Mosher, did a similar thing a few years back. Some 20,000 miles and wrote a book about it, THE GREAT NORTHERN EXPRESS. I’m sure you would find a lot of similarities.

    Please let me know at your earliest convenience as our Alaska Writers Conference is happening Sept 6-7-8 and I’d like handouts at that time for 120 attendees.

    May it go well with you. Alaska Jim

  6. Jim Misko says:

    Off and running with it. Will consider the other options you propose as well. I’ll be in touch after our conference. May it go well with you. Alaska Jim

    Ms. Hutchins,

    May I present a clear demonstration of how your book “Loser” speaks great truths:

    My wife is a small-Texas-town librarian. She is always on the lookout for books that I might find useful.
    She told me that two of your books, “Loser” and “Grace” were donated to the library recently. She does not know who did the donating.

    She thumbed quickly through “Loser” and checked it out for me. I am at the beginning of a two-week C-mas break, courtesy of the public school system for whom I work. I was all ready to knuckle down and work on my own collection of unfinished books. But I have been long-plagued (aka “blocked”) by many of the very topics that “Loser” illustrates.

    Before I even got to page 100 (you actually had me at “Part One”!), I knew that the book was a keeper. Before nightfall, I went online and obtained the Kindle version.

    Today, we both went into the library, and, due to my enthusiasm about “Loser”, she checked out “Saving Grace” for herself.

    To let you know, when she gets her hands on a good one, she lets every library patron know about it.

    Of course, in this short note, you may recognize several of the suggestions you yourself make to wannabee-indie authors – 1.) the benefit of donating books to local libraries, 2.) attractive pricing for Amazon-Kindle downloads, 3.) the sale of one book leading to the sale of others in your catalog, and possibly spreading exponentially from there.

    So thanks for joining in on the synchronicity of my own 2-week writing project, and thanks also for filling in many of the publishing knowledge gaps I needed to learn about at this time.

      RHM:
      Oh wow! I am so happy to hear that Loser has helped you — and the rest is awesome, too. I am smiling ear to ear. Thanks for sharing all of this with me, and please know that I blog on indie publishing at http://skipjackpublishing.com/blog-2/. You can get up-to-the-minute info there, if you’d like.
      I wish you the very best in your writing journey,
      Pamela

  8. A friend of mine Millie Hast–she’s terrific–spoke to you recently and suggested I contact you. She indicated you might have some marketing ideas for me. I’d love to connect with you.

  9. Hi Pamela,

    Saving Grace was a Top 3 on eBookDaily in June. See http://on.fb.me/1r11FCa

    Congratulations !!

    Just finished Kona….have read all the Annalise books….just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed them. I would like to know if you plan to write more books about Annalise? Love, love, love them!!

    • Pamela says:

      I love Annalise, too, Rachel. Thanks for dropping in! We will definitely see more of her. She’ll show up in the Ava books, and when I get Katie, Ava, Michele, and Emily all together one of these days in the next few years.

    Pamela I had the privilege of hearing you speak at Houston Writer’s Guild Indiepalooza last weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly. Very helpful information. My mother bought a copy of Loser for me (just realized how funny that statement was!) Loving it! My best friend bought every single one of your novels!
    I’ve downloaded Saving Grace and just sat down to read it. Two hours ago! If I hadn’t been interrupted by an attention-seeking dog I’d still be reading. Woman, you’re fantastic!! Your characters are REAL and I find that so refreshing! Loving Katie’s voice, and I’ve already decided which books I’ll be buying and downloading this week. I won’t get anything else done until I’ve read the whole series! Keep up the great work, you’re an inspiration to many and entertainer to even more!!

  12. Luke says:

    In Chapter 7 of your book “What Kind of Loser Indie Publishes, and How Can I Be One Too?”, you said that one way to establish credibility is to submit short stories and freelance articles to websites.
    Would it be better to hire an editor, set up a webpage, do marketing, etc just for these submissions? Or can I just do a basic rudimentary editing process just with me and a few close friends to edit and critique it?

    • Pamela says:

      I guess the answer depends on your level as a writer. A really advanced writer might not editing. A less polished writer might need more help getting the pieces ready. Most places that take submissions will do light edits. Some won’t edit at all. Unless you are in the business of doing these as a primary income stream, I’d recommend a page on an existing website. There I’d be sure to list past successful submissions, writing awards, titles, writing samples or excerpts, and have references/testimonials. My preference is using the best editor you can afford, and trading services is fair game here. And yes marketing those pieces, referring back to the landing page. By marketing I mean searching out for the publications and sending them pitch letters that meet their requirements. Just having the pieces and putting up a blog about them won’t get you there. Sure, I’ve had my blog content repurposed by magazines contacting me, but that’s because once upon a time I successfully pitched them and they kept me on their list and mined my site when they got hungry for content. But marketing it doesn’t have to be an expensive process, and it can be enormously career enhancing.
