Words with Jam – the literary mag you all must read.
Free on line. On Kindle. Blogged. And now it's on hard copy.
Take your pick and enjoy.
Miaow.

It must be something in my nature, but the more something is pushed at me the less inclined I am to check it out. However, I did, and wasn't particularly impressed. Again, probably me.

Yeah, probably is.

I'm just the same. Never like things being pushed at me - just makes me push the other way. Never have done as I'm told.

Having said that, I subscribed to WwJ a couple of months ago and do enjoy reading it. Perhaps less pushing would be good, though.

It's called "self-marketing" -

one of the few things still left to us writers -

who don't have the luxury -

of a brand-name behind them.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake!

But no one would know about it if we didn't tell anyone. WWJ was started by some very nice YWO members. A magazine for writers. It's a great mag, funny and informative, free if you get it on line. Not much else is. With over 8,000 subscribers after only one year in production, it's doing pretty damn well, me thinks.
Three Steps to Heaven
'Til I Kissed You
Always On My Mind
A rock'n'roll romance series by Pam Howes all available on Amazon in paperback and e-Books.

True, Pam, and I really enjoy it. Would never have found it without your post. I suppose it was just having it mentioned so many times on two separate threads that started to seem a bit of an overload, that's all.

Well, see that does make a difference to me. Pushing without explaining isn't a good idea. Now I know it was started by YWO members, that's a plus for me. Until you said that I thought it was some kind of spam like you get on all book/writing groups.

However, I'd have to disagree about not much else being free, as that's something we've come to expect from the net. Maybe a lot of it would be better if it weren't.

Anyway, thanks for the explanation.

It's important to remember that you can't please everyone. And you shouldn't try. Everyone's entitled to an opinion.

If you please more people than you annoy you're doing a good job.

I think WWJ is fabulous.
