Sold!

I’m back! I just arrived from my 5000-mile road trip and I’m blogging again. Sorry for staying away!  Hopefully you will forget all about it when I tell you the wonderful news I received just before I left for my trip…

For My Future Agent (Are You There?)

Yes, I hope there is an agent in my future. Why? For many reasons, but mainly because agents open doors, because I wouldn't mind having someone guiding me, and because I don’t enjoy dealing with the submission process and all the legal stuff. So, I’m writing this open letter to my future agent. May I dream I’ll find one?

How I Got a Book Deal (part 2)

(Read part 1 first.)

So, as I said, I signed up for the individual critique session and picture book writing workshop of the RMC-SCBWI 2013 Annual Conference. Signing up for them was probably the best decision I could have made for the advancement of my desired career as a children’s book author. Obviously, there was a great amount of luck involved as well.

How I Got a Book Deal (part 1)

Okay, it is time to share with all my three blog followers out there how I got a book deal…

If you read this blog from its very beginning, you will see it wasn’t always a pleasant ride. In fact, it was often sad, frustrating, and purely depressing. However, I can’t complain. It was a very instructive time and fully worth it.
