Seems fitting that my first post should be to recognize the Martin Sisters. If it weren't for their experience and assistance, I would still be passing my query and sitting in slush piles. There are a lot of people lauding self-publication, but as someone who knows how little she knows, I'm grateful for having my hand held and being led into the world of publishers, booksellers and promotion.
I am like my own main character, standing among the writers as she stood among the elite, wondering how I got here and what I am supposed to do next! Denise and Melissa are my Adam, leading me and prompting me, guiding me through. We have a little way further to go, but my story will soon be available to everyone who wants to read it, and I couldn't be more thrilled about that.
Many of you know I write fanfiction, and Cargon, like so many of my stories on FanFiction.net, I wrote because I wanted to tell that story. Unlike those first forays into writing, I'm not happy enough to write for myself anymore. I want to produce something that other people enjoy as well.
If you haven't been to their website yet, head to http://www.martinsisterspublishing.com/ and follow them on Twitter (@martinsisterspublish). I am only one of several great books coming from them, just this year. More will follow, don't be left behind.
