Insecure Writers Support Group
I have been blogging for eight years, and only now have finally signed up for the IWSG blog hop. Can you believe it? And of course, my first post is late. For some odd reason, I didn't get the question emailed to me. But that's okay. Better late than never!
The question this month is: What pitfalls would you warn other writers to avoid on their publication journey?
Well, pitfall number one is not having a well-edited manuscript. I've reviewed a lot of books. It's always frustrating to see one riddled with grammar and typo errors. Take the time and spend the money to have it professionally edited.
Pitfall number two is going into the publishing industry blindly. Take the time to learn about the different publishing choices and ways to market your book. It'll be a whole lot easier if you do.
Pitfall number three: Giving up. When you are faced with a lot of rejections, it's easy to quit. But don't. If you love writing, keep doing it. You'll improve, and maybe someday you'll even see your work in print.
Speaking of work in print, my newest book, Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China, will be released on September 4, 2018! To help get the word out, I'm having a "Where in the World?" blog hop.
When: September 4 -7, 2018 (Post any day during that time period.)
Where: Your blog
Prompt: If you could go through the Earth and end up in another country, where would you go?
Info: All posts will have cover art, blurb, and buy information for Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China which I will email to participants during the last week of August.
This is my very first blog hop. I hope you'll participate! The sign up is below. Thanks in advance to everyone who signs up!
