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
