I found this video on YouTube today. I like the tips; they are good things to remember for any author. I’m so conflicted on my feelings about self-publishing though. I think if I didn’t have a full time job outside of being an author I would consider it more. I would have more time to work on the advertising piece. In order to be successful with self-publishing, this step is essential. I think I’m going to continue trying to publish the traditional way. If I’m not successful, I’ll revisit the idea again in the future. What are your thoughts?
According to Publisher’s Weekly, these are must-reads for this summer! Has anyone read any of these? I haven’t yet, but I hope to! Here’s the link: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/summer-reads-2012#book/book-1
I am so excited about the SCBWI Indiana conference this weekend. I haven’t been to a conference since September, and it is time to get recharged! The workshops sound fantastic; I really hope to get a lot out of it and refresh my memory on certain writing techniques.
Do you know of any other conferences happening this summer? I write for children, ranging from board books to young adult. Some of my work is Christian based, some is not. I’m always looking for new conferences and workshops to attend to refine my skills!
If you happen to be at the conference this weekend and see me, please don’t hesitate to stop and introduce yourself!
I am so excited that my new website is up and running! I have to give credit to my big sis for designing it…she did such a great job! Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions. There are a few things that need to be updated yet but hopefully it will happen soon. I can’t wait to start interacting with readers! My first question for you…what is your favorite book of all time?
