Since I have two novels just released from two different publishers (and I've never been self published) I've had several people ask what was the most useful thing I did to have two novels out? The answer: when I was first starting to write, I wrote short stories. It's an ongoing class in how to write. Now, I sell about 12 short pieces a year and that helps gain the attention of publishers.
And speaking of ongoing classes, here's info on my upcoming workshop:
- Tuesday, June 12, 2012
- 7:00pm until 8:30pm
- Maui Wowi - 520 E. Franklin in Meridian, ID
