Today is Sneak Peak day! I'm sharing a free preview of my novel, All About Annie. So you can read a bit, see if it's for you, then click to enjoy the rest if you so choose. Now if you're an avid reader like myself, someone who can't resist reading the back of cereal boxes and vitamin jars, then you'll take advantage of this. Call it reader appreciation day.
Well? Did you like it? Hate it? Can't wait for more? Think I need a career shift? If you do go full throttle and read the book, please share your thoughts. Just remember to be kind. Kindness matters.
Today it's back to work on my current project. The one I'm actively seeking representation for with little or no expectations of successfully achieving that goal. But for those that are following my journey, this isn't unusual. I've always been one to hope for the best but expect the worse. I hate to be disappointed. Which makes writing kind of a poor career choice. Truly it does.
My question for you dear readers is this. How many of you are hesitating to change direction in your own lives for fear of failure? Fear of rejection? Fear of financial ruin? There are all sorts of stumbling blocks, particularly for writers. So here's the good news for today.
The only difference between the writer and the author is whether your work is published. And thankfully, you, yes you, can publish your work yourself. For free if you're up to the task. No financial ruin. So you can scratch that off your list of excuses right now. Does it take effort? Yes. Determination? Yes. Skill? Perhaps. If you know what to do and where to go for help, it is however, achievable.
The point is this. If you have that burning desire to be an author, go for it. Today. Don't wait. Your destiny is in your own hands. Becuase I for one can't wait to read your first masterpiece.
