The Forgotten

Well, y’all, I found this post that I forgot to publish back in February! Thought I’d go ahead and share it anyway. 😀

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. –John Lennon

Despite my best intentions, there just isn’t enough time in a day! I haven’t had as much time for blogging, but I’ve had so many wonderful, fun experiences to enrich and inspire my writing and I suppose that makes up for it.  I hope you all have had a great start to the new year. As you may already know, the publication process has begun for The Magic Telescope. I’m expecting the edits from my publisher soon and I’ll have one week to get any desired changes back to them, before we begin work on the layout and illustrations. I’m very happy that Tate Publishing allows their authors to have a say in what the illustrations look like. I once read most publishers don’t allow the author to have a say in the illustrations or the cover. I don’t know if that is true, but I was so relieved that it was not the case with Tate. I’m looking forward to see what my editor has to say. I will keep you updated. Almost too good to be true that I’m finally getting one of my books published! It couldn’t have happened without my wonderful family and friends that love and support me. I realize that getting published is just the beginning. I have to grow an audience and hope the book sells, but I’ll think about that part when I come to it. Can’t wait to see it on bookshelves 😀

I still want to self-publish a book, too some day. I recently met a local self-published  author who has published two of her books so far (I’ve read them both) and is doing quite well. She is working on a third book.  I’m waiting to hear back from her on whether or not she’d like to do an interview and give us the 411 on how to self-publish successfully. If you’re a zombie fan, you will love her books. Her name is Laura A. Hansen. Here’s her website: http://www.cruiseoftheundead.com/ Y’all should check it out.

Yay!

I’m super excited! In a few days I’ll get to meet a published Children’s book author from my home state 🙂 Maybe she’ll agree to an interview.  I’m even more excited that I looked into her publishing company and I will soon be submitting one of my manuscripts (fingers crossed!). I’m not getting my hopes up too high, but just doing something, working towards one of my ultimate goals, makes me really happy. I got some positive feed back from a self publishing company that I admire, so that lifted my spirits a little, too.  I will go into more detail in a future blog.

Sorry I’ve bee…

Sorry I’ve been MIA the last couple weeks.  I haven’t had the chance to write anything.  I did find a blog that I enjoy though and would like to share with you. Click here to go to writingforward.com’s blog.  There’s lots of very useful info on there for creative writer’s. I’ll get back on track soon. Maybe my next blog will be on time management…  Thanks for hanging in there with me 🙂
