Okay, technically the book hasn’t been published yet, but I had to differentiate between the author before and the one after the contract offer. Getting the contract offer is by far the coolest thing, but that was a month ago and in this day and age of the ever changing it’s old news. I’ve told everyone I know and I recommend doing that because you might be surprised by the results.
It just so happens that a lady I know, Sandy, one I’ve known going on nine to ten years, is in a writing group. We had no clue that the other was a writer. Anyway, she and a half dozen or so other ladies get together and read their stories to one other. When she learned I was getting published, she told her writing group and they’ve asked me to talk to their group about getting published.
HOW COOL IS THAT?
……okay, I’ve got the giggle under control. But really isn’t that cool?
So now I’m thinking about all the things I want to pass on to them. What are the most important things they need to know? And what’s the one thing I hope they take away from my visit with them?
When Sandy asked me about doing this, I obviously said yes and told her about my friend and fellow author, Tonya, who talks about paying it forward. So what would you pay forward? And if you are an author or writer what is the best piece of advice you’ve gotten in your career and think I should pass on to this group of writers?
