"Want to know why I joined the WLC? Right here: 'The World Literary Cafe is being built upon the premise of giving more than you receive." 
-- M. Hovermale, Zen Cherry Blog

"I have sold more books in the one month that I collaborated with WLC than in the previous months combined!"
-- Author Christine Cunningham, Eternal Beginning


Thanks to the WLC, I had so much fun learning how to get a higher Amazon ranking and met a great group of people at the same time. Kelly DeWitt

I have never been part of a book promotion of this scale and really didn't know what to expect.  Melissa Foster and the Women's Literary Cafe made the experience incredibly enjoyable and rewarding.  Not only did I get to connect with 35 wonderful authors and make new friends, but I saw an incredible spike in my sales, jumping onto the best seller list after the first day of the promotion.  James P. Wilcox-Author of Sex, Lies, and the Classroom, The M-16 Agenda and Musings of a Particular Bear: A Poetry Collection.

Working with WLC has been such a wonderful experience on so many levels. My ranking for my debut book Wedlocked: A Novel was propelled into the top 3,000 on Amazon and the book's exposure has exploded across the country and the world. I credit the wisdom, support and vision of Melissa Foster and the amazing network of people I was privileged to cross promote with. I not only gained an invaluable business community, but unexpectedly found a trove of special friendships I will always treasure.--Bonnie Trachtenberg, Award-winning author of Wedlocked: A Novel.

"The WoMen's Literary Cafe proves to me that, in these modern times, geography is no boundary to comradeship, encouragement and success. I am a richer soul because of the WLC & the new people I can now call friends" - Dean Mayes

"Thanks to WLC. The experience of supporting Melissa's launch while cross-promoting 34 other authors' work was truly amazing. My biggest weakness in self-publishing is marketing and promotion, but with the help of WLC it was painless--no, it was fun. I look forward to more exciting work together. Book Launch Boot Camp--that's what it was and it was worth every minute." Kathleen Shoop

Being part of Melissa Foster's Come Back to Me Launch was amazing. Not only did I get to meet several new readers, but I met thirty-five wonderful and inspiring authors. Writing is such a lonely job, and when that many people come together for support and encouragement, it makes you realize there are fantastic people still left in this world. I was proud and honored to be part of WLC and this wonderful group of authors. Tonya Kappes, International Bestselling Author 

Working with the WLC not only brought my rank to the top 5,000 on Amazon, but only proved that working as a team leads to success. This wouldn't have happened without  founder, Melissa Foster's vision of kindness and helping others. She chose dynamic, committed and inspiring authors who brought out the best in us.--Geraldine Solon--Author of Love Letters and Chocolicious 

When I began to 'share the love' with the WLC community, my book sales started to increase almost immediately. If you're writing without a net, without a community, without the support of other authors, you are missing a significant piece of marketing strategy. Most important, the bonds formed in this talented group goes beyond words, because nobody gets anywhere alone. - Beth Elisa Harris

WLC is an amazing community and a great resource for authors. We are all stronger together and this is the place to be! Connecting at WLC showed me authors are much stronger together. I've learned so much and have the sales to prove it! - Wendy L. Young


I have sold more books in the month that I collaborated WLC than in the previous months combined! Not only will your fan base grow, you will meet the most positive and supportive authors anywhere! ~Christine Cunningham



I joined WLC to be part of a group and ended up with a circle of new friends. Everyone is so open with excellent ideas to promote your work. I invite anyone who is serious about taking your book to the next level to join now!~Christine Cunningham


Working with the WLC has been an amazing experience. I have seen my sales increase and my sales ranking has improved tremendously! The best part of all is that I've gained invaluable friendships with wonderful people who really care about each others' success. I can't wait for future collaborations! - G.E. Johnson


Working with the people involved at the WLC has been a learning experience.   One of the most important things learned from this is the fact that community amongst writers is important.  We’re stronger as a group.  Together, we get things done.  Sales and ranks go up.  But most importantly, you build friendships and support groups that will last a long time. – Author Emerald Barnes


There is nothing better than working together with like-minded, caring creative people. Being an author can be very lonely. WLC is a supportive community where partnerships are powerful and blessings are plentiful. ~ Author Kaira Rouda


WLC is more than just a mere group. This is a collection of dedicated writers sharing their work with the world. Each one delivers a story to delight, some of the finest to be found. With  WLC my sales ranking more than doubled. - Author Micheal Rivers

Working with the WLC was an experience like no other since I've been writing.  Not only did I gain the support and backbone of the group professionally, but I made some amazing friends in the process.  Writing can be a very solitary venture and WLC showed me that it doesn't have to be.  I'm not alone.  There are many others out there, just like me, struggling each and every day to put words on paper and find an audience for them. ~ Author T.M. Souders


WLC is an awesome group and a shining example of the coming wave of indie authors. We are a force with which to be reckoned. 36 authors sold some 400 books in three days... imagine the power of hundreds or thousands working together. Complete support and encouragement, a win for one is a win for all. My previously unpromoted, non-fiction work shot up in the rankings. That is the proof that collaborative marketing works. On top of it all, a great bunch of people to chat and spend time with.  ~*~ Edward Owen

I have spent the last few months taking advantage of your Share The Love FB Likes and have increased my likes to over 1000.  As well, yesterday, I did the Social Media Mania Book Buzz promotion and was happy to see how many times my new novel, "Unlikely Family," was tweeted and Facebooked.  I was running a special on my book so I'm not sure what exactly caused the sales increase to go up at a 1:7 ratio but it was successful.  I'm guessing it was a mix of all of it, including the book buzz. Today, I signed up for the Twitter program as well.

Many thanks to Melissa Foster for sharing her knowledge with other inde writers.

Before WLC, I STRUGGLED to reach 100 followers on twitter and 150 FB followers. Now I easily gain 20-30 per day and in 7 months I have over 2000 Twitter followers, I've made money every month, I've been on Amazon's bestsellers lists every month that I have run my program and I've come to understand what it takes. Because of Melissa, I am living my dream life and I am so grateful!

Working with WLC on my free book promotion has been a positive, friendly, organized and very effective experience! From the first contact telling me I'd been selected for a free promotion, to the organized instructions, helpful reminders, and tweets, it turned the promoting part that can be so cumbersome for authors into an easy and stress-free experience. Not only that but I had more downloads through Smashwords via this promotion than any other tactic (along with resulting sales for my sequel!). So thank you WLC, for the great experience!

An open letter to Melissa Foster
Dear Melissa,
after several 'traditionally published' novels in Germany, I thought it should be easy to get an agent/publisher here in North America for my first 'English language' novel. It wasn't. I decided to go indie and regretted it very quickly as sales averaged about 10- 20 downloads per month for the next several months - until I discovered WLC on twitter last April. Through WLC I found your 'Fostering Success' course, Melissa. This has been the best money spent - ever. Not only did you teach the basics of social marketing to me, the computer dinosaur, with laudable patience, you got me into the Fostering Success Facebook group. This group is a constant inspiration and source of information, a friend in need when stuck with minor or major problems, and a lot of fun. I must say, your reminder to curb my expectations has helped me through the initial difficult phase when I sat on the computer for hours and saw only small rewards. Since April however, my sales are steadily growing, and if it goes on like this soon my writing can actually support me - which is a miracle, isn't it. So, thank you, Melissa, with all my heart. May God bless you and your family!

I always thought writing books and getting them published was the biggest hurdle to overcome. Nope, marketing your books and getting people to read and write reviews is a HUGE challenge as well. Thank you WLC for your author friendly site and wealth of information. I loved & appreciated you last year when your reviewers read my first book, but I am ecstatic about the Authors Tweeting Authors program and have told many of my self published author friends to join! Thank you for continuing to think of ways for authors to help each other.

Many thanks!

Melissa Foster and the generous authors, bloggers, and readers at the World Literary Café helped catapult The Last Supper Catering Company to #159 overall, #11 in Literary Fiction, and #1 in Religion/Spirituality/Channeling on Amazon the week of my launch.  Without their dedication to getting the word out through Twitter, Facebook, and an amazing blog tour, I’m certain my book would have remained in the shadows.  Indie authors, if you’re looking for a place to call home, hang up your coat, kick off your boots, and rest a spell.  The World Literary Café is that place.  Michaelene McElroy, Author

Thank you, Bonnie Trachtenberg and the WLC team, for Free eBook Friday and for supporting indie authors like me! The Black Friday giveaway of my nonfiction travel memoir “Kilimanjaro” was a success. Thanks to you, I was able to connect with more readers interested in reading my account. Your promotion is a great service to the indie community. Without you, self-published authors would have fewer practical options to connect with our colleagues and to promote our books. Your efforts to help us are sincerely appreciated. Keep up the good work, WLC! I’m looking forward to many Free eBook Fridays to come.

I have been an on-again/off-again fan of WLC, depending on my time, schedule and mood.  But today I became a loyal, pretty-much-always-there supporter.

I paid for Book Buzz when I did my Kindle promo more than a month ago.  But today, to my delight, a WLC Book Buzz promo showed up several times through the re-tweet system. WOW, how lucky can a girl get!

In a small effort to balance the scales, I sent out all of the WLC tweets today, even though I wasn't part of today's re-tweets.  I will probably do it on a regular basis in the future.

You are definitely running a cool site/business/support service.

This has made my page look so much more professional and authentic to passers through. If you follow the instructions and take it slow the people will come :-)

Having got facebook under control I'll be starting on the Twitter Teams next.
