The #AmWriting Preorder Link is NOW LIVE!!!!!!!! A Collection of Letters to Benefit @TheWayneFDN

Good morning, bibliojunkies! Just a few months ago, this was just an idea tossed around between some friends, and today, we’re one step closer to seeing it in print.  🙂  #AmWriting’s preorder link is officially live!  I’m so excited about this project, and so are all the wonderful authors who contributed their words to make it happen.  Not only do the proceeds benefit The Wayne Foundation, our hope is that the book itself will encourage other artists.  Good juju all around!  🙂

I wont be around much today.  I have a long list of PR work to do for some new clients who came on board, and then I am working on formatting the print and ebook versions of #AmWriting.  That’s a new experience for me as well, but I started it a few nights ago, and I am soooooooooo happy with how it’s coming out.  Cant wait for you guys to see it!  🙂

I have a super-huge favor to ask of you guys.  The #AmWriting project has a HeadTalker campaign open for release day.  If you’re not familiar with how it works, HeadTalker is what’s called a crowd-sourcing platform.  You give a one-time authorization for your social media account to allow Headtalker to post our campaign message at the end of the campaign (the message for this campaign announces that #AmWriting is released). It’s an automated process, so that’s all you have to do. It’s a quick, painless way to help support authors and get the word out about this great project, and it doesn’t cost a dime.  🙂  If you’d like to support the campaign, you can do so by clicking this link.  On the campaign page, you can support it with your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and/or LinkedIn.  🙂  That’s it.  Just the click of a button.  🙂

Okay, I’m off.  LOTS of work to do today.  🙂  Happy Hump Day, bitches!  😉

AmWriting Ebook

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 will be 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
