John - thank you.

Those comments - hard to give up, I know...I always think about four times before doing it, then just send a private message - sometimes the kindest way.

I'm pleased with the way the edit is going. I have killed many a darling on the way.

John - you're a star.

I'm re-editing the entire book, refreshing my own memory at the same time. Thanks for your support.

Let me know when the time is right for you...

All the best, Cas

Hello John – Slow Poison has been creeping up the list for the past few months and is hovering in the top five.

If you have a space on your bookshelf for a while, I would help me get to the hallowed Editor’s desk for a review.

Any feedback would be welcome too as I’m in the middle of editing the entire book.

Regards, Cas

HI John,
Would you like to take a look at Belle Epoche de la Vapeur and let me know what you think?

Hey friend - I decided to leave autho permanently so I will have more time to focus on some work - just logged back in to give some goodbye hugs before doing so.( No need to respond since I'm retiring again - I just didn't want to leave without saying adios.) I've enjoyed getting to know you and wish you luck in all your future endeavors! :) I hope your health continues to improve - take care of yourself! Love, Ruby

God used you to speak to my heart ... I was just about to go to my profile and push "retire" - I only saw your post because I went back in the thread to copy and paste what must be my 25th goodbye to the site.:)

Anyway, some time when you would like, I would be interested in hearing more about your faith. I remember reading a post about you talking to some folks at your house as a child and I found that very interesting. I hope your ear infection improves, and take care.

Love, Ruby

Hi John,
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your warm comments on my "Hello" thread ... that meant more to me than you know.
Best wishes,

Thank you to all who supported my book, “Soft Comes the Wolf”, and helped it reach the ED.

I have found a lot of great writers on Authonomy, but I had to dig to find them. While Authonomy is a great site to improve your writing skills, it does little to improve your business sense. And these days, an author must be equally proficient at both writing, and the business of books.

As I enter the mass marketing phase of my business plan, I am faced with learning target demographics, social media advertising, and other sales models. If you would like to pioneer these processes as a team, to share information, or to merely network outside of the Authonomy site, please click on the link below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Best Wishes,

Tone Martin

Hello John,

How are you? Remember me? I have returned here with the hope of resuming my writing and would really appreciate all the shelf life I can get for my books. I will return the favour.

I want to thank everyone for their concern. Meant a lot. I hope everyone will let me know if they think they're dying so I can return the sentiments. Please don't respond to this cause then I'll have to respond and you'll feel obligated to respond back and it'll all be a pain in the ass for everybody and you'll wish I really had died.

Hello John,

I sent the below message recently. Just wondered if you were in a position to respond yet? Happy to reciprocate.

Hope you are well. Maybe you would like to try out my new satire, Doghouse Blues. Here is an endorsement:

I was attracted to Doghouse Blues from the pitch alone because it was so very different. There are so many budding writers out there who want to earn the same sort of money as J K Rowling by writing exactly the same kind of book and , to be frank, I am getting a bit tired of it.
This, on the other hand, struck me as being an original piece of work. The product of a lively mind and written by someone who is an excellent observer of the real world out there and who knows how to translate his observations into print. Just the right amount of dialogue, which carries the story along well.
I have not read the complete book (yet) but have dipped into it fairly freely to see if the momentum is maintained. It certainly is.
Philip John

Looking forward to reading your comments on the Doghouse Blues webpage.

All the best,
