It’s a given that at this time of the year we start to reflect on the last eleven months, and we inevitably start looking to the future at what we hope to accomplish in the new year. Of course, I am no different.
I’ve had an interesting year as far as my writing career is considered. I’ve been working on a third novel and struggled to meet my writing goal of having it completed in 2021 (spoiler alert, it’s not anywhere near complete). Recently, the rights for my first traditionally published novel, The Spaewife’s Secret, reverted to me, after which I started to reflect on how far I’ve come since it was first published in 2018. I knew enough at that point to be dangerous, but really, I knew nothing. In the three years since, I’ve picked up a wealth of information that has hopefully prepared me as I move forward with my career and goals.
Join me starting December 1st for 31 days of reflection on writing, submissions and publishing advice based on my experience as a traditionally and self-published author and submissions coordinator (aka slush pile peddler) for a boutique literary agency that represents a hot new best-selling author in the thriller genre (my favorite genre).
I clearly don’t know everything, but I do know some things, and I want to share them with you.
