Introducing Author2Author

People say writing is a lonely process but we say heck with that—it doesn't have to be! We are 5 young adult fiction writers, all at different stages of our career, our "journey", and we thought it would be cool to share our experiences, from our tumbles to triumphs, with other writers at all levels. We have 5 participating writers, Kate (Miss Apprentice Writer), our newest to the writing process, Emily (Miss Awaiting an Agent), our writer who has pumped out a couple of books and is at the stage where she is querying for an agent to represent her, Deena (Miss Recently Repped), our writer who recently signed with a literary agent, Kristina (Miss Soon-to-Pub), our writer with her first book due out in 2009, and Lisa (Miss Pinch Me I’m Pubbed) our writer with a published children’s book and her first YA book, I Heart You, You Haunt Me, released on January 8th (http://www.lisaschroederbooks.com/books.html). We hope that whatever level of writing you are at, you can see yourself in us, and you can also see where you are going next. This will be an active blog and you can depend on hearing from each of our 5 writers on their respective days, Monday through Friday (Start date=12/31). And since we are an extremely chatty bunch of writers, we'd love to hear back from you too!

I am a fledgling writer who is currently co-writing a book with a friend. I need to insert a disclosure that the characters are not based on real people. I've seen this statement hundreds of times, and for the life of me can't come up with proper verbiage.

What verbiage do you folks use in a similar disclosure?

I'll appreciate your suggestions.

Thanks!

Hey Kat,
I just saw your note now! There is a standard note. I've seen in front of books too-- something like this is a work of fiction and any similarities between the characters in the book and real people are purely coincidental. I think that's it anyway! :) Don't worry though, if it gets published your editor will know exactly what to say!

What a wonderful blog. Some writer friends and I had decided to do something very similar when I was pointed to your site. Even though I'm a little jealous that we weren't the first, I think you've all done an outstanding job. I'm adding you to my list of sites to visit daily. I wish you well and many more quality posts.
