In this business everything is a stepping stone, as one thing leads to the next. You can't get to the top of the mountain without climbing through bush and trees. Nobody can climb your journey. You must strap on your hiking boots pull yourself up, one step at a time, and move forward.
I've always heard that the writing is the easiest part, it's the submissions, the rejections, the waiting, that's the challenge.
I've been enjoying the process of marketing, and find it fulfilling to see 10 TURKEYS IN THE ROAD brought to fruition. I had the pleasure of attending my very first signing, at The Lil' Pumpkin Patch in Baldwin, Maine, last week.
To sit there, books in tow, pen in hand, signing for the children, well, that was a highlight of this journey! And one that I'd dreamt about for years. Yes, 7 long years of hard work, and finally, there it was.
It's worth every obstacle you'll overcome when you reach the summit!
Happy writing, happy reading!
