A very sincere thanks to the lovely & talented Valarie Savage Kinney for allowing me on her blog to post the A-Z basics of Livian!
It has been a bit longer than I had anticipated since my last post. For those of you that did not know, I have recently been in the middle of a move. We are now in the new home completely, and most of the boxes are even unpacked at this point. My study is still a bit of a mess. Everything is out of boxes, though it seems that the majority of “study items” are stacked several feet high and possessing what should be my desk.
I have decided to lean away from the route of literary agents and push more towards the search for a publisher. I am well aware that with this being my debut novel, this is a bit against the grain- though, I feel that in my heart, this is the path for me at this time.
While I seek for a publisher for Livian, I will also continue with the adult novel that I call, “Anna” until a better title sticks.
Thanks for reading. As I become a bit more settled into the new home, I will continue blogging on a regular basis once again. Stay tuned!
Earlier today, my dear writer friend, Dawn Kirby and myself decided that it was time for writers to unite beyond simple impersonal tweets. By this, we have created #fbwriter.
A hash tag on twitter, to post a link of a facebook “like page” with #fbwriter in the tweet allows an index, so to speak, of links for writers from all over the world- of all genres. Dawn, actually made the sister support of the hash tag by creating a page on facebook, allowing writers to post their facebook pages into an index there as well. Facebook also offers more than the quick connections of twitter. The facebook hash tag page gives writers a meeting room for discussions, support, and general questions.
Sometimes, the world of a writer, published or not, can be a rather lonely place. Even with friends, family, and fans to support you, a writer carries self doubt, mostly when it comes into their entire heart bleeding into the pages of a novel; a writer’s precious baby. With the creation of #fbwriter, Dawn and I hope to ease the minds of other writers in this small spot on the web where it is okay to need advice, support, or just another means to get your name out there in this vast literary world.
