First Step

I was just informed that my manuscript, Unspoken, was accepted by She Writes Press for publication in fall of 2021. That should get me blogging again.

This will be the first of what I hope to be a series about what it’s like to be published for the first time. She Writes Press sent me a 94-page Author Handbook that outlined what I am to expect in the next year, so there is going to be lots to blog about, including: editing, publicity, marketing, social media, branding, etc.

I moved into a new house with my housemates, put together an art studio, painted, started writing again, submitted my manuscript, and what a surprise! In the midst of Covid-19.

I am so fortunate to have so many creative things to do here in my own little abode. And to be living here in Tucson, Arizona.

I spent yesterday making Olson masks (https://www.sewcanshe.com/blog/simple-step-by-step-tutorial-for-the-olson-mask-pattern) for me and my housemates, Mary and Rick.

Plus I need to get caught up on what’s new here at WordPress AND learn about Instagram. Anyone else out there have a difficult time keeping up with this stuff?

SOMEONE HAS

 

IMG_2894Ever wish someone would surf through all those writing, publishing and marketing blogs, pick out the best and most informative ones and drop them in your email?

Someone has.

His name is Gene Lempp, and once a week he compiles a list of all the best and lists them on his blog at http://genelempp.wordpress.com/

He even categorizes and writes a short synopses of each so you can choose which ones you want to read.

Gene is another special example of how writers go out of their way to help one another. Is there any other “business” like this?

Thank you, Gene!
