Can Self-publishing Author Collectives Help Authors?

Writing Collectives have been around for years. Exactly what are Writing Collectives?
Writing Collectives are a strong, cohesive group of authors coming together to collaborate on a publishing project without a publisher assisting them. It can consist of thirty or more well known published authors, mixed with authors who are just starting out or authors who have published and hadn't sold many books.
You may have some of the group working on each others manuscripts; suggesting power titles that may sell, the hero and heroine, deciding on the genres, strong lines, character and settings, and length of manuscript. After this collection, it's presented to the group, as a whole, for descision and approval.
Each participant has to agree to a publication date and a deadline.
Each writer is responsible for editing cost for their book and for it's cover.
Pros and Cons of an Author Collective:
1. Author support
2.The team can produce the best possible book for an author.
3. Members can rely on each other to develop methods to spread the word of their book using   social media to promote each others book, thereby preventing annoying, "Buy my book," "Please buy my book."
4. Some members may have the skills of creating websites, newsletters, press releases or blogs, or good edeting skills. If not, each member can split the cost for outside help in these matters.
1. Putting a group together and making it run smoothly; everyone has to pull together.
2.Team players; a few authors can't do more of the work. Everyone has to invest time and money. No unfair users.
3. It's a good idea that the group sticks to like genres; like minded authors of romance, thrillers, fantasy and etc.

Visit shoe stores on Sunday mornings, or late on weeknights. Chances are you will be the only customer in the store, and the salesperson will be able to give you his full attention. The result? Knowledgeable, one-on-one service

rolex replica on Friday, April 12, 2013 2:31 AM
rolex replica watches :I received this product in a very timely manner in a well packaged box and inside the box was another clear topped container which was also very well protected. It is a little bit smaller than expected but is still an amazing watch none the less. The chain is about 18 inches long and comes with a clip for your pocket. All in all it I am very satisfied with this and recommend it to any Fullmetal Alchemist fan rolex replicas :My daughter loves anime, so she wanted this pocket watch for Christmas. I was a little worried when I saw the delivery time, and if I would get it before Christmas. I got it with plenty of time to spare. Now the watch. For the price I think it looks pretty cool. My daughter and her friends like it. It looks like an antique pocket watch. Seems to work good. Overall, It's a nice product. Packaging was very good too. replica watches :I was a little skeptical when I first got it, but after I took a look... It was Wonderful!!! It's looks durable( it's made out out of metal and looks like the hard kind, but only time will tell), it's shinny, better than in the picture.
