Winners of Our 2020 Contest
 
Final judges: Jendi Reiter and Ellen LaFleche, assisted by Annie Mydla and Jim DuBois
 
2020 Grand Prize: Christine Mulvey, Mine to Carry
2020 Grand Prize
Christine Mulvey, Mine to Carry
Ellen LaFleche writes, “Mine to Carry is by far the strongest book I’ve encountered during the years I’ve helped to judge this contest. The writing is a perfectly woven tapestry of lyric description, narrative, dialogue, story, and philosophical and religious musings. It’s extremely hard to weave multiple strands into a perfect literary garment but Mulvey has done just that. We give this book the highest praise. It’s an important historical document about the intersection of women’s rights and cultural and legal norms.”
 
2020 First Prize, Children’s Picture Book
2020 First Prize, Children’s Picture Book
Jerald Pope, Fetch
Jendi Reiter writes, “In this wordless illustrated narrative, an old man and his shaggy dog go out to a windswept field of tall grass to chase a ball…one last time. This gentle story will speak to readers of all ages who have lost a loved one. I appreciated the subtlety of Fetch, a restraint that was suited to its theme. It didn’t feel manipulatively hopeful and upbeat like some more cutesy picture books about bereavement.”
 
2020 First Prize, Graphic Novel & Memoir
2020 First Prize, Graphic Novel & Memoir
Ingrid Pierre, Do Not Resuscitate
Ellen LaFleche writes, “A young woman having a difficult time accepting her boyfriend John’s death from cancer is at first overjoyed when he comes back from the dead. But even as the reunited couple make love and bathe and continue on with daily activities, the man’s body begins to decompose. As the boyfriend’s re-animated body continues to vanish, the couple work hard to come to terms with how they behaved toward each other in life, grappling with urgent haste to understand and honor their lost relationship in all its complexity: the good, the bad, the mundane, the loyalties, the betrayals, the joys, the losses.”
 
2020 First Prize, Poetry
2020 First Prize, Poetry
Caleb Rainey, Look, Black Boy
Jendi Reiter writes, “Look, Black Boy has the rhythmic verve and immediacy of spoken-word poetry, yet loses nothing in its transition to print. Rather, Rainey takes advantage of the visual medium to experiment with line spacing, punctuation, and layout in ways that add dramatic tension to his accounts of Black struggle and joy. The poem that caught at my heart and lingered in my memory was ‘A Letter From Red Kool-Aid.’ The personified drink expresses a childlike bewilderment at the premature violent death—implied but not fully comprehended—of the boy who used to love this treat.”
 
2020 First Prize, Creative Nonfiction & Memoir
2020 First Prize, Creative Nonfiction & Memoir
Alicia Doyle, Fighting Chance
Jendi Reiter writes, “Award-winning journalist Alicia Doyle’s unique, fast-paced memoir recounts her transformation into an amateur boxer in the late 1990s, and how this demanding sport helped her process her buried rage and pain from a volatile childhood. Throughout the retelling of her sports career, Doyle constantly reflects on the ethics of dealing out and receiving punches, and what it tells her about her own psychology.”
 
2020 First Prize, Mainstream/Literary Fiction
2020 First Prize, Mainstream/Literary Fiction
Jolie P. Hoang, Anchorless
Ellen LaFleche writes, “The opening paragraphs of Jolie Hoang’s compelling novel (based on true events) not only showcase her beautifully rendered lyric prose, but pull the reader into her family’s story of escape from the war in Vietnam, retold in vivid detail through the words of her father’s ghost. The book successfully straddles fiction and memoir; there is a haunting magical realism to the writing that creates a dual sense of reality/unreality. I am awed at how much horror, beauty, and joy Jolie Hoang packed into 100 pages.”
 
2020 First Prize, Genre Fiction
2020 First Prize, Genre Fiction
Rachael A.Z. Mutabingwa, Kunda
Ellen LaFleche writes, “A lush blend of magic realism, tropical island life, spirituality, civil war, and love and loss, this is the story of two families connected by a pregnant woman who time-travels between the 19th and 20th centuries. The 20th-century family finds itself returning to its spiritual heritage—a subplot that helps to connect characters separated by some 100 years—when modern medicine cannot help their young son who is dying of cystic fibrosis.”

Meshing Reading, Writing, and Marketing

A Memoir—and Marketing Technique--to Be Pondered 

 

From your #SharingwithWriters blogger and multi award-winning author of fiction, 
poetry and the HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers
 

Here is a book that neatly combines my love of memoir and marketing. The dust jacket of this beautifully designed book explains: When God Says No by Judith Briles was first published in 1990, republished in 1994 and again in 1997.  But wait! Here it is again published in 2019 when it “took on a life of its own.” As I read, it became clear that in spite of its many touching memoir moments, it was the journey this book took along with that of the author that caught my attention—something that would illustrate to my readers that a book needn’t die. It can grow. It can become a classic. And that reviews are one of the marketing tools that can best make that happen!

The thing is, it can only happen if the author (or publisher!) knows or has a sense that it can and also knows how to make something so miraculous transpire. In fact, it is the best example I have run across for the authors I have tried to convince about the value of reviews. It illustrates these steps:

  1. Know that these days books needn’t die as they once did when they were given ninety days before bookstores sent them back to publishers to be remarketed on discount sale tables or shredded! 
  2. The author and/or publisher must realize a potential for a new edition or the magic never happens.
  3. Such a realization is more likely to work well if the author has been keeping notes about new events, information, or ideas that affect the content—anything really, from a memoir to a how-to book. 
  4. That authors and publishers who keep honing their marketing skills are most like to make this book successful—from the first edition to, well, whatever number the last might be.

Note: The author of this memoir has been sending me copies of her new books for several years, usually with a handwritten note—both a gesture of gratitude and a request for a review or blurb tucked inside the front cover. It’s part of her process and certainly one that should be added to the marketing repertoire of anyone who wants to make a career of writing books!

Those who know my HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers may have guessed that making a book into a classic by using repeated editions and putting reviews at the forefront of their marketing expertise is the reason I wrote , How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically: The ins and outs of using free reviews to build and sustain a writing careerOne of my favorite sayings is MSNBC’s “The more you know…”  The future of one of your books may depend on just such a notion!

Working from Home for Authors--Successfully and Legitimately




Legitimate Ways to Make Money as a Stay-at-Home Parent


By Gwen Payne 

 

We writers are lucky. The ability to stay home and care for your kids is an invaluable gift. Beyond the savings involved in skipping years of outsourced childcare, you get to be around for all of those important early childhood moments. Of course, becoming a stay-at-home parent also means losing work income. If you’re worried about making ends meet, or you’d just like to put some extra money away for the future, a work-from-home job will give you the best of both worlds. 

 

Making money from home is easier than you may think! Are you wondering where to start? Tales2Inspire presents these tips to help you begin.

 

Start a Home-Based Business

 

Have you always dreamed of running your own business from home? Don’t let anything stop you! Countless people have launched successful home-based businesses while juggling the demands of parenting — and you can, too. All it takes is a little self-discipline and your ever-present writing skills.

 

Before you start,  make sure your idea--what your writing will do--solves a real problem or entertains in way that will encourage people to want more of what you do. A great way to generate business ideas is to think about the problems you encounter in your everyday life and come up with effective solutions for them. For example, if you’re a writer and you know business owners who would love to start a blog, offer to write some articles for them. Before you know it, you could start a business as a professional content writer.

 

Once you have a business idea, you will have to pick a business structure and register with your state. Forming an LLC could be a great idea if you’re looking to minimize your taxes and protect yourself from potential lawsuits should things go awry. Research how to start an LLC so you can get your business up and running as soon as possible.

 

Become a Freelancer

 

If you’re looking for a way to make some money on the side while building your business, freelancing is an excellent idea. You can freelance in a wide variety of industries. Some great freelance jobs to consider include writing, transcribing, online tutoring, marketing, and social media management. 

 

The best part? You don’t need any training or qualifications to get started. Create a few portfolio pieces to share with potential clients and learn how to write amazing proposals. Freelancing platforms are a good place to find your first clients, but you may also want to set up a basic website where you can showcase your professional portfolio.

 

Work as a Virtual Assistant

 

Do you need something a little more stable than a freelance job? While many freelance contracts involve one-off projects, virtual assistants often work for the same clients on a long-term basis. Some even work as remote employees. If you’re looking for employee benefits, virtual assisting may be perfect for you.

 

Virtual assistants perform a variety of tasks on the job. As Desire to Done explains, virtual assistants offer all kinds of services, ranging from blog maintenance and social media content creation to bookkeeping and email management. Try to find a virtual assistant job in an industry that interests you, whether it’s fitness, real estate, photography, web design, or business.  

 

Start a Home Daycare

 

Not so tech-savvy? There are plenty of money-making opportunities for parents who prefer to work offline, as well. Running a home daycare is one of them. You’re already home with your own kids all day, so why not add a few more? 

 

Operating out of your own home means very low startup costs, but you might have to invest in toys, cleaning products, mats, food, insurance, and first aid supplies before launching. Hunting down funding to cover these minor costs shouldn’t be too difficult. Consider asking your friends and family to invest in your business or checking with your bank about a small business loan.

 

Be sure to consider your legal obligations, as well. For example, most states require that daycare staff have CPA certification. You’ll also have to check your state regulations regarding health and safety inspections, facility requirements, child-staff ratios, and zoning regulations.

 

How to Find Work-Life Balance

 

When you’re juggling remote work and childcare responsibilities, life can get out of control very quickly. Make sure you’re prepared to find a work-life balance before you start working from home. First, manage your expectations. You might not be able to get as much done in a day as you expect — and that’s okay! Count on everything taking longer than planned so you can avoid overbooking yourself and causing burnout. 

 

Try to maintain a routine, but be okay with some uncertainty. A few hours of focused, kid-free work every day can be invaluable to busy parents. Consider getting up before your kids and plugging away at your most important projects during this sacred time. Save the more mundane tasks — answering emails or creating invoices — for those hours when you have to keep an eye on the kids. 

 

Practical By Default also recommends setting a timer to block off work periods during which your kids know not to interrupt you. Once your kids learn what the timer means, you should be able to focus for 15 to 30 minutes at a time without distractions. Most importantly, remember to give your kids plenty of attention when your work block is up.


Thanks to the internet, there are countless ways for stay-at-home parents to make money. And you don’t have to stick with just one method. Consider juggling a few different gigs to maximize your money-making potential. For example, you could run a home daycare business and work as a freelance writer on the side — whatever sounds good to you!
