The list author says: "1st Turning Point was born when three long-time friends/authors (Jacquie Rogers, Ann Charles, and Wendy Delaney) spent an afternoon bemoaning ... how tough it is for unpublished and small-press published authors to get their foot in the door these days. Each had spent way too much time combing the internet and scanning books, searching for information on what an author without a New York publisher contract could do to get her or his name known by their peers and potential readers. The result of this afternoon (besides a lot of hot air) is 1st Turning Point, a place where authors without promotional knowledge (or even a published book) can come to find help and support on the road to successful publication.
These are some of the novels written by some of the First Turning Point authors who share their advice and experience for free with anyone who wishes to gain an insight."
"Rowena Cherry's insights into ebook piracy (and what to do about it) and her knowledge about the DMCA, copyright issues etc are mostly informed by her experiences with ebook piracy of her award winning, sexy, short prequel MATING NET."
