comment Is this America Star Books Special Services unsolicited email a positive step in publishing and marketing?
raises eyebrow So they are gambling on your success by gaining rights to your story and promoting it poorly? Seems suspicious that they don't mention what happens if someone actually buys your book.

comment How to write a homosexual character, whose homosexuality isn't the point of the story?
I do this all the time in my stories. Sometimes my characters are straight, sometimes they are gay, sometimes they are pansexual. It's never the point of the story, it just happens to be whoever they are into.

comment Two perspectives in a non-fiction book
I'm not clear on what your view as her mother brings to the story. You've described this as non-fiction. What kind of story are you trying to tell? Is it some kind of instructional guide?

comment I'm shy to let my friends read my books
You might benefit from presenting work as a draft or letting friends read something that doesn't seem as important first. It's also important to realize that your skills won't improve if you never get feedback. You can't learn to do better if you never fail, because you'll never know what mistakes you are making.

Are you interested in having people read your work? There's no requirement that you have to let anyone read what you write.

hahaha. It's much funnier with more description, and it tells me more about the characters.

comment What makes a bestseller - Writing or Setting?
I think you've created a false dichotomy. Good writing doesn't necessarily make a bestseller, and neither does the setting. It's more complicated than that.

It depends on what rights you want to assert, what kind of work you have produced, and where you are located.
