Hi Frances,
Thanks for friending me! I have to admit, I'm not related to publishing in anyway (hopefully that will change shortly) I'm just fascinated by books. I look forwards to chatting with you about your book!

Thanks for the numerous emails regarding dealing with the "bullying" issue in Mary Lamb Enters the World of Maze. Hope this exposes the ugliness of bullying and creates more awareness.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/16/2010 at 9:27 PM:
France, Take it to Createspace and buy a marketing package. I have lost all my faith in agents. Also because your first book is already self published I wouldn't hurt to see if you could move that work to Createspace as well. Then you can take advantage of the e-book field. I recommend marketing for... more

Hi Frances!
Well you must have finished another book! I see you are looking for a publisher/agent. I published Dancing Eagle with Create space, and I am so glad I did. I am selling signed copies and have two different school districts interested in using it in their middle schools. I just publ... more

Hello Frances, my name is Tony Casas, I'm new to the publishing world, I just finished a Children's Book, and PublishAmerica wants to offer me a contract, but looking them up in the BBB they have alot of negative reviews. I was just wondering how they have been treating you?

Hello!
Wow it sounds like your a pretty busy lady! I love animals, once me and my husband get a house, I'm getting a dog. My poor dear mother nearly went frantic with me...I always fed all the strays through the back door of our house, so they came around all the time. They were the s... more

Hi Mary You're a busy women my goodness, I have two stray cats, and one I felt sorry for from the SPCA. I live in the woods of Santa Cruz California and I'm working on my first book, about my grand mother from 1905 to 1969.

Hi Fran

I have not had a chance to get hold of one of your books yet but am excited. I read the info in the paper. Right ON!
Comment by Frances Botham on 11/7/2008 at 4:03 PM:
In answer to Louise's question about Publish America, I've alread sent her an email.
For the record, Publish America is great to deal with and in answer to Louise's question, no, they did not charge me a cent.
Frances.
Comment by Louise Michelle on 11/7/2008 at 6:27 AM:
Hi Frances,
I recently had a manuscript accepted by PublishAmerica and, if I recall correctly, you said that you published with them and were happy with them. I am hearing that they do charge writers. Was this your experience? The contract is on its way to me via snail mail.

Comment by Pearl Hewitt on 10/25/2008 at 9:36 AM:
Thanks you Frances. I love the idea of your Mary Lamb book. My 11 year old daughter is a huge animal lover and has wanted to be a vet since she was in Kindergarten. She was enthralled with the Warriors series of books (about clans of cats at war etc) by Erin Hunter. I'm sure she would love your book... more

Hey, Frances-
How're you doing? I read you live in Ontario. My wife and I have been up to Canada but to Quebec. Nice place but I wouldn't want to be up there in the winter. Too cold for these bones.
You got cats? We have three. Two females and one male whose a wuss. Not my favo... more

Comment by George Wilder on 10/17/2008 at 7:23 PM:
Again, that you so much. I'm a former Publish America author. I published three books with them. Again, thanks for the invite. I'm proud to join. I'm still trying to construct the site.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/12/2008 at 4:45 PM:
Mary Lamb Enters the World of Maze is a delightful story for young readers. This story has great visuals and gripping adventure. If you like classics like Arthur and the Invisables and Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh you will love this book.

Comment by Nancy Radke on 10/9/2008 at 10:22 AM:
Thanks, Frances, for inviting me to be your friend. I'm new on this, so need to add details. I grew up on a wheat and cattle ranch in eastern Washington and at one time had sixteen cats. They were outdoors cats and good at catching mice, but the coyotes caught them, so it gradually dropped to the fi... more
