Publish Your Water Cooler Stories on WEbook

"So how was your weekend?" It's the Monday morning question, right? The one we put to our co-workers and friends, to the bus driver, even to the over-caffeinated barrista at Starbucks. Part greeting and part lament, it's also a great source of inspiration for writers. Now you can post your wacky/touching/death-defying weekend tales on WEbook each Monday. Then the WEbook editors will pick the wackiest/touchingist/death-defyingist story each week and publish it on the WB blog. Groovy, eh? Contribute now.

Sneak Peek Alert: Shirt for Dessert

Marley Barley, the irascible, shirt-sucking cherub from WEbook's first children's book is almost here. Well, she is here, thanks to illustrator Janis Dougherty and author Jayne Bonilla. She's just waiting for her shining moment in the publishing sun. Want to see how she turned out? Click here to get an early look at Shirt for Dessert. If you like what you see, pre-order Marley in all her grandeur on Amazon.

Contribute to the New Level 4 Project: "I Hate Poetry"

Poetry publisher Level 4 Press and WEbook are teaming up again. After our successful five-book series published earlier this year, Level 4 decided that another WEbook-powered project was in order. So, do you hate poetry? Or do you love to hate bad poetry? Or are you the perfect contributor to this project--a poet who loves to make fun of poetry and poets? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, check out the I Hate Poetry project. In the last set of Level 4/WEbook titles, poems from more than 25 WEbookers made the cut. Click here to submit.

Last Call for Submissions: Poetry Vote Starts Aug. 1

The inaugural WEbook Poetry Vote is nearly upon us. If you haven't put your best three poems in a new project and submitted it to the vote, do it now! Don't wait, don't even brush your teeth before getting your verse into the voting cycle. The fireworks begins in a week and half and won't end until August 31. Don't be left out. Click here for more info.

As always, WEbook wants to hear from you. Drop a note to info webook com.

WEbooker of the WEek Shares Her Story

 WEbook is a community of writers, so the new Community Storytelling Forum seems like a no- brainer. One person starts a story, and other writers contribute 500 words a piece until it's done. No feedback, no criticism, no discussion -- just writing, tag-team style. Sounds pretty fun, right? But it takes guts to be the first person to jump in, start a story, and let other people finish it. That's why this WEek's WoW badge goes to A_Netz, initiator of the first community story in the forum. Be sure to check out the story -- if you feel inspired, you can contribute, or even start a new story of your own!
