Well, dear readers (to coin author Jane Austen), I've been studying your 2011 Resolutions and seeing a trend - so many writers are looking for publication this year, moi included. We've spent 2010 writing our drafts, editing, revising, now we want to find a way to get our work in print. So, where to from here? And what is print these days anyway?
So! I'm hosting a Publication Party with guest speakers and they won't be boring I promise! They've been where we are today -polishing their stories until they shine and wondering where to go next..?..?..?
I've spent the latter stages of 2010 reading up on traditional publishing, self-publishing, e-publishing, mystic publishing (just kidding)...but I really need some guidance. And it doesn't just have to be a book you want published - I, and many of you write magazine stories and are always looking for a new market, so I had this idea...I want to read about how writers like us reached the Holy Grail of becoming a published author, so I have asked authors who many of you may know to come to our party and tell us about their journey: I've asked them to speak on the topic - How did you get published?! What did your journey look like?
What are you waiting for? Get ready. Grab my button (copy the code) in the top left sidebar so you won't forget to come back this Wednesday and every Wednesday into February! You can delete it once the party is over if you wish but why would you want to? There's always a party of some sort happening here, lol!
I can't wait for this party to kick off!
So in the above list there are fantasy authors, a mystery author, a sci-fi author, a short story author and memoir authors. No matter what their area of expertise, we can all learn about how they were able to take that giant step from writer to author! Join the party on Wednesday January 12th! Tell your friends! The more the merrier!
Any questions, just ask.
