Spring time is a season of renewal. Whether its flowers in our garden, or the grass changing from its dull and dry state, into a lush and vibrant green, Spring makes me feel hopeful for what the rest of the year has to bring.
That said, I‘ve I had a wonderful year already, and I’m blessed to have had the opportunity to republish a few of my older books with Liquid Silver Books. By the end of this year, you’ll have two new titles from me later this year and a whole new slew by 2017.
In the meanwhile I‘ve also been working on some ideas for helpful blog posts. After being in the industry since 2009 and published since 2013 I‘ve learned quite a number of things that others could benefit from the knowledge. Sometime ago, I began a series on the differences between the types of publishing options that exist, and I wish to to share my thoughts again. In addition to those posts, there’s all kinds of things that should be done before you even consider hitting send. All too often, from both sides of the table a terrible trend of new and old authors rushing their manuscripts. I happen to know that experience all too well and have learned to love and hate the process of rewriting. Rewriting a manuscript multiple times blows chunks, and I don’t want to see you do it as a result from rushing. Rushing a good thing can be accompanied with dire consequences. Just like a juicy roast, it’s best cooked nice and slow.
That’s it for me for now, as I need to get things ready for my events at the Romancing The Capital event here in Ottawa, Ontario. If you’re in the area on Saturday, the book signing is open to the public. I hope you’ll stop by!
