Holly Alastra | 25 comments I like this idea Mollie. I am a similar type of writer and I'd be interested in looking at your stuff. I live in Montana, but my sister lives in Seattle. My book is Beyond My Body... http://www.amazon.com/Naughty-Girl-Ho...
if you are interested. Always good to meet fellow authors with similar interests! Best wishes.

Write to me at diana dot maryon at telus dot net . This is my book O Love How Deep, which I can send you in .pdf form. I write under a pseudonym, for the protection of several people living and dead.

Mary Stobie (patchworkmary) | 10 comments Mollie, Hi! Can you send me a short piece? mry_jeanne@yahoo.com. I'm starting a spiritual memoir. More private than the memoir I just published, You Fall Off, You get Back on. I wouldn't mind exchanging short pieces to get some feedback. Great idea!

Joe Kaplan | 4 comments I am a partner in a company called The Cheerful Word which helps people write their memoirs. I joined the company earlier this year after the owner, Ruth Ann (Sam) Uhl asked me to become her business partner. Sam is a Personal Historian who I met when I took her 8 week workshop on memoir writing. After the workshop I retained her to help me write my book which I had begun a couple of years previously. We published my book and are now in the business of looking for other potential authors. You can find us at www.cheerfulword.com

Barbara Newhall (barbara_falconer_newhall) | 16 comments My memoir/spirituality book came out a couple of months ago. It's "Wrestling with God: Stories of Doubt and Faith." Patheos Press is the publisher. Writers interested in religion and spirituality might want to check out the Patheos.com website -- all kinds of blogs, posts, articles, etc. on this lively interfaith site. Patheos Press is an offshoot of the website; it publishes primarily ebooks. Might be a good publisher for some of you memoirists.

I'm have my first Goodreads GIVEAWAY Wed - Fri, July 8-10. Check it out.Wrestling With God: Stories of Doubt and Faith

Barbara Newhall (barbara_falconer_newhall) | 16 comments Wish I could do critiquing with some of you. I love doing that. But right now promoting my book "Wrestling With God," is taking everything I've got. No time to write, let alone read other MSS in progress.

Reading other people's work is a great way to hone your writing skills -- my opinion.
