One year ago, about a year since I decided to work full-time on my writing, I was lucky enough to be invited into a critique group where my critique partners were e-published.
In the last month, I was appointed as PRO Liaison of my local chapter of Romance Writers of America and, after winning a Savvy Authors pitch contest, offered a contract on my fourth novel, Entangled.
If there is any advice a newbie like me can give, it’s focus on the front end of promotion, not the back end (on sending out queries, not the rejections).
I must take my hat off to the editors and agents who’ve rejected my work. I have never seen so many encouraging rejections. Whatever the reason, keep those encouragements coming, they mean a lot to me, rejection or not.
