I’ve been sitting on this exciting news for about two months now. When I was first approached with the opportunity, I made the choice not to talk about it too much. I had very logical thinking: If I talk about it, it will disappear. Although I mentioned it to those closest to me, I didn’t announce it until the plane tickets were booked and it was official.
What is this big news you ask? On Monday I am flying to Miami to join Lissa Rankin on the Florida leg of her book tour. We will be traveling to Boca Raton, Orlando, and Tampa. I get to be her roadie/personal assistant. After over a year of having an online friendship with Lissa and writing for her wonderful website, Owning Pink, I finally get to meet her face to face and soak up some of her radiant energy. It’s also not too shabby that I get to see the inner-workings of a book tour and travel along with someone doing my dream job!
With that being said, I will not be blogging next week. I’ve decided to devote next week to the writers that help me write. Each day I will feature a writer who has actually read my fiction and provided me with feedback. In essence these are the people whose names would appear in an acknowledgment section if say I get a novel published someday.
Each day I’ll briefly introduce you to someone and then provide the links to their websites and/or blogs so that you can learn more about them and read their writing.
Have a wonderful week! I will be back with something new on Monday the 22nd!
