Almost five years ago, I completed the first draft of what has turned out to be my first novel, Amish Snow, picked up by Sabellapress. Like so many other authors' works, the manuscript kind of languished, and I realized I would have to do something if I seriously wanted a publishing contract. So I signed up for Fiction Writing I online taught by Irene Zabytko. I don't think I would have been published without Irene's expert hand and the feedback from other aspiring authors. I went on to take Fiction Writing II online taught by Terri Brown-Davidson, and How to Get Published online taught by Daniel Lazar. I'll be back for more courses.
Anyway, I'm excited! I'm about halfway through the first draft of my second novel, and am juggling my time between working on it and helping to promote Amish Snow. I think I'll start with some of the usual marketing strategies, you know, an Oprah appearance, a White House book signing . . .
