New Kid on the Block

Hi All!

I'm the new kid on the block here on the Acme Authors Link. Many thanks to Morgan for inviting me to be the "Sunday Blogger".

I recently sold my first fiction book, "This Time for Always", to The Wild Rose Press. I don't have information about a release date yet, but I will keep everyone posted!

I am pretty excited about this new chapter in my life, but a little overwhelmed as well. It's been great having friends who are already published. They've answered a ton of questions and have been very supportive and encouraging along the way. That's been the best part of my writing career (pre and post published) so far: fellow writers who are always willing to share advice, expertise, sympathy, and congratulations (whatever the particular occassion calls for). I belong to a fabulous local chapter of RWA (Howdy Chicago-North!). Without these wonderful ladies, my road to published bliss wouldn't have been nearly as well-paved.

So for all you aspiring authors out there, my advice to you is this...get connected. Find a support system, personal and professional, and then get writing. Your dreams can come true, too.

All the best,

Debra St. John
