Calling All Writers

There's an urgent need for writers who would like to share their story of how they got an agent, got published by a small press, or self-published. I usually post these inspiring stories every Wednesday, but for the past two weeks I've drawn a blank. 

The idea came to me when I was deep into query my epic fantasy and the rejection letters were piling up. What was it like to get an agent? The joy must be indescribable, but would it ever happen to me? I was really doubting myself and my writing. Yet a silver ray shone among the clouds. I knew people who'd done it so it must be possible. I started asking successful writers to let us into their world and, since writers are so generous, the response was overwhelmingly positive. 

These stories pulled me from a dark place and encouraged me to carry on. And hey, it worked for me. I hope by continuing to post more inspiring success stories, others will be uplifted. They will see that to reach the goal, you have to be persistent and work hard to develop your skills.

If you have such a story to share, please email me to arrange a week.
