Hi... Very Happy

Does anyone know about " The Red Room Writers Site?"
I found it by accident , it seems they may seem snooty,
they have to check you out before you become a member.


Cheers..Joe.. Smile

Well, I fought through their screening until they decided I was not just a member (an anybody), but also an author (a somebody). Since it is another writers' site, it's mostly writers reading about writers....but I do enjoy some of the blogs and points of view. If you go there, www.redroom.com, stop by www.redroom.com/dkchristi and check out my site and decide for yourself if it's worth the initial snubs

This is not a very accurate representation of Red Room.   Their membership includes some of the top authors in the world.  It also includes people like us.   You don't have to "pass a test" to be a member (like those insane little cult morons as SCRAWL)   To become a "Red Room Author" you do have to sort of qualify.  Mostly by being a published author.It's not  a red hot site or anything, but it's not snooty or Martini or any of that, either.

When I signed up, my book published by PA was not recognized. However, there is always a way to get your work mentioned, i.e., in blogs, your bio, in discussions and uploading pictures.
After the initial rebuff on my PA published book, I have found the site to be very professional. As Lin pointed out, top authors also post and much can be learned from those who have succeeded.

Joe,

They will accept anyone. They will list anyone as a member. You have to apply to become an author. I was invited to join by Belle Yang, one of the founder members, but they wouldn't accept me as an author. They accepted Pam and JoElle as authors but not me. I decided to part company with Red Room. If they don't want me, I certainly don't need them.

I was denied author status at first also, but I persevered and out of the blue, there it was. They had in the meantime sent me an invite to the self-published authors site they planned to build. I found that not appealing. However, I do enjoy the information shared.

I think I'll just decline the offer...I don't
want to be just a member, I want to be
listed as an author...I'm worth it ..

They seemed to have recently changed the plan.  You can no longer be a Red Room Author without paying for a premium membership.

Sure. So who cares if you're listed as an author or member? You can read the same stuff there either way, right?

LC, a good point.

Is it just me, or are we more inclined to hear what you're saying when you are open enough to show us your (very attractive) face?

My only problem right now is trying to stay focused enough to get my current textbook ms in to Prentice Hall next month, which is my contracted deadline. Farting around on message boards doesn't help. lol
