Welcome to Following the Whispers blog

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.

“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf

“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

A book review

Hi all,
Just a quick note to ask you to stop by:
http://womensmemoirs.com/2009/08/book-review-of-following-the-whispers-by-karen-walker/comment-page-1/#comment-2240 and read a review of my memoir, "Following the Whispers." Kendra and Matilda teach memoir-writing and marketing, so their words have special meaning for me.

I'll go check it out. I have heard your book is doing very nicely. Did you have trouble getting an agent to take you on (if you have one?) and if you don't have one, did you have trouble getting you publishing house's interest? Just wondering... cause as you know I have written a memoir and am planning to start querying with it later this year or early next year.
If you have time to share I would be thrilled :) ( i understand f you don't)
