#AmWriting: A Collection of Letters to Benefit The Wayne Foundation Paperback – March 23, 2018
Enhance your purchase
Knowing what you know now of writing, publishing, and putting your art out into the world, if you could go back to the day you sat down to start typing in your very first manuscript, what words would you offer to yourself? Words of encouragement? Words of advice? Caution against certain pitfalls? Would you change anything about how you got to where you are today? The publishing community is so much bigger than it was before the self-publishing boom and it continues to grow exponentially every day. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a handbook or support group. #AmWriting is a collection of letters written by authors from all different corners of the publishing community. The letters provide words of encouragement or advice to those just starting out or those who have become discouraged in their art. At Pure Textuality PR, we believe in supporting each other as a community, and we felt this project would be a good way to bring writers together and maybe give some new artists just the right nudge to keep going. 100% of the net proceeds of #AmWriting are donated to The Wayne Foundation, a charity dedicated to offering aid and services to young women victimized by illegal sexual exploitation and the sexual trafficking of minors. For more information about The Wayne Foundation, you can visit them on the web at http://waynefdn.org. #AmWriting features letters from more than 60 authors, including Jeaniene Frost, T.J. Michaels, Kendall Grey, and many more!

#Amwriting is inspirational on many levels. The letters from writers to themselves are in essence love letters. They speak of a love of craft, business, and connections, and offer a comprehensive and accepting look at the experience of writing over time. Though the letters are written to self as encouragement in a reality-check kind of way, they offer wisdom and support to authors in general. Whether an aspiring or newbie writer or a seasoned, experienced one, writers will find much in this book to appreciate.

Here I am, 11 o'clock at night, surfing Amazon's library for something to lift my spirits about my writing... and I found this. These letters are encouraging, and all together they make this book a treasure trove of support. The various authors seem to speak right through the pages. "Writing with Legos" had me laughing and nodding in unison, and Amy Joy brought in lifesaving tips! I've actually had the pleasure of meeting one of the authors (Misha Elliot) in person, and I get the feeling these letters were written with kindness... and wine. :) #AmWriting
