I would love to read THE JUNKMAN’S DAUGHTER and I have the perfect target audience right here in my own home. Why not get a middle schooler’s and his mom’s perspective? : )

    Hi Lisa, I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions about your experience with Susan Hawk thus far. She’s contacted me regarding writing/illustrating and I would love to pick your brain. Is this contact forum a good place to do that or do you have a separate email address that would be better? thanks much,

    It’s so exciting to know when another writer has gotten a contract! I’m still floating on Cloud 9 from mine, but I’m also like, “Great! Now it has to sell!” And that’s where the freak-our wants to explode because the market is fickle and reading is down. But I’m also keeping in mind that I’m in this for the readers, so I will appreciate every single reader who stumbles upon my book and loves it. I will not take a single one of them for granted.

    I am certainly following you to read updates about your book!

    Hi Lisa,
    How do we submit my daughter’s short story to Fat Reels? There doesn’t seem to be anywhere that we can upload it. My daughter wrote the story on Word.
    Thanks for any insight!

    Hi, I was just on your website and filled out your “contact us” form. The “contact us” page on your site sends you messages like this to your email account which is the reason you are reading through my message right now correct? That’s the holy grail with any type of online ad, getting people to actually READ your ad and I did that just now with you! If you have an advertisement you would like to blast out to lots of websites via their contact forms in the U.S. or to any country worldwide let me know, I can even target particular niches and my prices are super low. Write a reply here: harry2947har@gmail.com
