Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion WHO HERE SELF-PUBLISHES? in the group Romance
"I self-publish, and really like that I can get the books in print so quickly, and out to friends, acquaintances and family within a few weeks of finishing, and having edited. Distribution is the problem. I sell around a hundred copies of…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion HAVE YOU TRIED GETTING AN AGENT? in the group Fiction
"Good advice, this didn't set me back from writing, however and I will try again, and probably again and again. There is someone out there who will read my books with the same enthusiasm as my handful of devoted readers who have said…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion HAVE YOU TRIED GETTING AN AGENT? in the group Fiction
"I have looked on line before this wonderful site went up and felt what I found were not legitimate. I talked to one at a writers conference who seemed so tired and bored, I felt I was bothering him. He reluctantly glanced at a couple of pages…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion WHY DO YOU WRITE ROMANCE NOVELS? in the group Romance
"I write romance novels, with a few extra layers of solving crimes, dealing with emergencies, dealing with assorted bad guys, and a little suspense thrown in on occasion. Why? Because this is what I like to read. The first time I sat down and wrote a…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to John T Cullen's discussion DO YOU WRITE "LITERARY" OR "COMMERCIAL" FICTION? IS THERE REALLY A DISTINCTION? in the group self- publishing
"I write commercial fiction, I guess, because I like to read the commercial stories, that's what I write. I'm a plain and simple person and I write plain and simple. I love mysteries, action and adventure mixed in with romance so…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to F.J. Thomas's discussion Making a detestable main character more likeable? in the group New Writers
"Is anyone all good or all bad? Maybe a serial killer who is kind to animals or an adulteress who is good to children or the homeless. Learning things that happened in their past at a time when they were vulnerable and were hurt,…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion DO YOU PUT RELATIVES AND FRIENDS IN YOUR STORIES? in the group Fiction
"I never base a character totally on someone I know, however traits will come out occasionally. I do put friends in friendly positions such as having a coffee shop named after one friend.  She says she always wanted one, and in the last book she…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion DO YOU KNOW THE STORY BEFORE YOU WRITE IT? in the group Fiction
"Maybe that explains another discussion about two writers, or more, writing the same story. Is one stealing from the other or did the story sperm just hit two or more people at the same time?"
Apr 5, 2012
Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion DO YOU KNOW THE STORY BEFORE YOU WRITE IT? in the group Fiction
"TD Jones, This is much like my experience with my characters. My first book took several years to get done and I was so happy it was done, I was 'over it'. It was no time at all the characters were all talking in my head about things that…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion DID YOU PAY A LOT TO SELF-PUBLISH? in the group self published authors
"When I published my first book "Frost Love Lost Love Found" I had to pay someone to format it for me, there were some things I could not figure out. That cost me $200 then I had the cost of printing the books. If I sold all the books I…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion DO YOU KNOW THE STORY BEFORE YOU WRITE IT? in the group Fiction
"The ideas for my stories develop as I write them. The characters have their own personalities and they tend to react to the situations I present to them in their own way. Of course I have a vague idea of the story but things come out during the…"

Marilyn Clarke replied to jeff herman's discussion WHAT'S PLAGIARISM? in the group Fiction
"I can't see any way they could be copying from me and I know I'm not copying from them so, I guess it's a matter of two minds coming up with the same story line. It is not exactly the same but there are definitely some similar…"
