Today at five after midnight Pacific Time, I launched the premier issue of The Prosperous Writer.
If you missed it, e-mail me at christina katz at earthlink dot net and I will be happy to send it on over to your inbox. (Please check your inbox first, if you were a former subscriber of mine, then you should have received it.)
Unlike in the past, the e-zine will not be posted in this blog. This blog will carry original content of its own. Ditto the e-zine will carry original content.
As an exception, I want to share some announcements I made in the e-zine. I also want to provide a space for folks to comment on the decisions I’ve made. If you have anything to express, please feel free to comment. Here goes:
Breaking News: Time to say goodbye to…
- Writers on the Rise
- The Writer Mama
- Get Known Groove
My hope for The Prosperous Writer is that it will serve all of you well as we leave behind the old ways of doing things and move into a new era in writing, publishing and communications.
So all three monthly e-zines are being wrapped up into this weekly communication, which will deliver timely, relevant tips and insights for writing prosperously through changing times, including breaking news and how you can contribute. And every single thing I’ll ask you to do is like a mini-lesson in how to thrive in the new gig economy.
A few more things I am saying good-bye to:
- The Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway
- The Writer Mama Anniversary Book Tour
All three of the above involved large contributions of time and energy, not just from me but from everyone involved. In order to pave the way for new and exciting ventures, I need to prune back the tasks that overtax me. So adieu, adieu, adieu! We had so much fun!
And then, just when I was lightening my load, I made a false start:
I said I would launch a Writer Mama Book Club in 2010. But once I got christinakatz.com up and running, I quickly realized that this would be unsustainable. So there won’t be a Writer Mama Book Club in 2010. But I hope you will still come by on January 5th and bring your questions for Therese Walsh about her wonderful debut novel, The Last Will of Moira Leahy.
I want to thank everyone who has contributed to all of these wonderful celebrations of learning and sharing over the years. We really created some cool stuff.
Please join me in bidding a fond farewell to all of these wonderful endeavors…and in saying HELLO to a new year!
Next week , I’ll share the list of all the new offerings I have for 2010. Can’t wait. More soon!
