The Gals of Coffee Talk

Welcome to the Scavenger Hunt and February Cover Wars sponsored by Masquerade Crews. Can you find the answer to one of the questions on my page? Hint: look to the right.

Yes, I’m going to blow my own horn, or rather that of my author group. Coffee Talk is my fan club, support group and my closest online friends. These gals have pushed me when writer’s block hit. They took me by the hand and pulled me into the world of social media (sometimes kicking and screaming.) We help each other through rough times, personal and professional, and shout out our successes louder than our own family members.

And to sweeten the deal, they are some of the most talented new authors I have read in the past year.

No one can understand the trials and tribulations of an author like another author. After spending an hour getting that paragraph just right, my  husband smiles and says “That’s nice.” My Coffee Talk girls  say, “Post it. Let’s see what you’ve got.” Or “Woohoo! Love it when a scene comes together.”

When my first novelette, Merry Christmas, Henry,  hit Amazon, my family members and close friends each dutifully bought a copy. (Except for my mother who bought tried to for Christmas.)  My author group shared it on Facebook, blogged and tweeted it to the heavens. My sales showed it. There is nothing better than having your own personally invested Street Team promoting you. Through the supreme efforts of the Coffee Talk Writers, my first publication reached so many readers it won Best Short Romance of 2013 in the E&P Readers Poll.

We first met in Scribophile, an online writing community. Critiquing relationships grew into friendships. Soon we established a blog together. After a year of collaboration, we have established an active website that is a regular stop with Book Monster Tours. We showcase authors through spotlights, interviews and book reviews. With careful recruiting, we added nine reviewers to our site. Our members will soon have a dozen published works between us. Quite an accomplishment. And we’re just get starting. Our new website is almost up and running. Keep an eye us: our site will be offering more services throughout 2014.

So aspiring authors, want my advice? Find yourself a group of dedicated, like-minded writers. Support each other, share your talents and see how far you can go.

    This is sweet!!!

  2. Thanks, Ki. And thanks for the reblog. I am so glad you joined our team as a reviewer.

  3. Couldn’t agree more. I want to share all and every bit of news about my writing with my family, but I see their eyes glaze over! You need to have very special friends in this business. And it’s true, mutual encouragement can work wonders. Keep up the good work, ladies.

    • Thanks for stopping by Belinda. You have given great encouragement, too.

  4. Congrats … sounds like you are enjoying the group – and it sounds like they are a great group to be a part of.

  5. Thanks for stopping by, Susan. Sometimes the hubby is just not enough. Nothing better than like-minded women to boost your morale.

  6. Big hugs!!!!

    • Back at you. You have introduced me to some wonderful friends and authors, Renea.

  7. Oh you’re way too sweet, Aubrey! ❤ ❤ ❤ But yeah the Coffee Talk girls do kick some serious arse! 😀

  8. Great post and I couldn’t agree more – no one but another writer knows about the roller coasters that we writers go through. Yeah for Scrib!

    • Absolutely. If we don’t support each other, who will? Thanks for stopping by, Nancy.

  9. Pretty! This has been an incredibly wonderful post.
    Thank you for providing this information.
