Be Careful What You Wish For

Posted on: February 28, 2014

Hoping that some day (soon), I will join the ranks of published novelists, I was excited to read Catherine McKenzie’s post on Writer Unboxed. I knew she would unravel some publishing mysteries for me and other hopefuls.

The headline to her post, “5 Things I Wished I Knew Before I Published My First Book,” reeled me in. If l learned one thing from her experiences, I would be a little better armed for what the future may bring.

 “…publishing does have its rules and regulations and complications—again, just like any industry—and there are a few things I wish I knew before I started along the path.”

 – Catherine McKenzie

All of Catherine’s Top Five Things were need-to-knows. If you’re a would-be, like me – or even if you’ve been to the dance a time or two – check out Catherine’s words of wisdom, caution and inspiration.

Ready, set . . .

Thanks for the article, Claire. Balancing the online stuff with writing is a challenge, but I feel like I’ve been getting better at it every day. 🙂 Check out my new website, and click on the latest post on the right side of the page. I added a photo and a different title to the post about Sharon. I think you’ll like my modifications. 😉
