I firmly believe that one person's success story lifts us all up and gives us the encouragement we need to keep going. And in that spirit, and to inject some positivity into this blog, I want to introduce someone to you.
Here name is Amy Allgeyer Cook, and her first book is being published!!!
*cheers and yelling and clapping*
Amy wrote this book over six years ago and has since written several more, published magazine pieces and studied her craft. She submitted her book manuscripts again and again, to both agents and editors. But no acceptances.
One of her submissions was to the PM Moon Publisher's First Annual New Authors Writing Contest. And lo and behold, she won the grand prize! Now her book will be out next year, and Amy is in the middle of revisions, marketing plans and out-and-out euphoria.
Want to find out more? Of course you do! Here are some links...
