Foreword by

For most women with an interest in the written word, the normal thing to do is form a book club and get together once a month or so over wine to compare notes about some piece of literature—often with lots of laughter and sometimes tears.

Clearly, that wasn’t enough for some of the passionate, diverse, professional members of the University Women’s Club of Vancouver. Forming the ‘Monday Writers Group,’ these mostly first-time writers quickly discovered that not only could they write, they could write well.

What began innocently as a series of writing exercises is now a book. Focusing on the themes of childhood, family, life experiences and misadventures, the Hycroft women’s personal short stories will not only delight and entertain readers, but inform them about some of the formative experiences in the lives of these inspiring women as seen through their eyes. ~ Gordon Clark, Editorial Pages Editor, The Vancouver Sun & The Province

Linda made our diamond in the rough sparkle. Our book, Write Cry Laugh Repeat is an anthology of short stories written by six first time authors. We were new to self-publishing and Linda skillfully guided us through the process. She read all our stories before offering suggestions and options on format, quality of paper, font style, binding and book cover. Her collaborative style was appreciated; she was readily available to answer questions, listened carefully to our feedback and did not hesitate to give us more options until we decided on the book cover. Her formatting and design style enhanced our text and brought the book to a higher level. We are delighted with the overall professional look and feel of our book and will be quick to recommend Raven Book Design to self-publishing authors who are looking for something special in the design of their book.
