I’m going to tell you a story as I remember it. It might not be as it truly was, but here goes.
A long time ago, I was in a creative writing class taught by George Singleton and I saw a somewhat familiar face across the room.
I just finished a John Green book called Looking For Alaska. It was- of course, I mean this is John Green after all- a fantastic YA book, one in which the dates were given in a sort of backward order.
Exciting day for the book-and me! One should be making its way to the laps of strangers. The other needs to stay home and write. So thankful for all the support from my family and friends that made this possible.
It’s an exciting new way to get your book noticed by readers. It’s called the Kindle Scout program and each vote cast is tallied to select who makes it to publication. See? No casting couch here, just you and your NOMINATION button pushing finger.
On November 1, a new FAA regulation went into effect that allows passengers to keep their personal electronic devices on when cabin doors are closed and the plane is under 10,000 feet.
Hmmm. Can’t tell you how many times I disobeyed those flight attendants and merely hid my electronic reading device instead of shutting it down.
Now available as a “real” book. Shipped to your door. Signed by the author.
Could online critiques of your work in progress from potential book buyers lead to publication?
I haven’t found the book I went looking for the last three trips to Barnes And Noble.
I barely found an intelligent clerk to help me not find the book that they didn’t carry but would be happy to order for me.
