Words of Advice

That's part of what this blog is supposed to be. So I think I'll just bottom line it with things I've said before.

Never give up if you want to be a writer.

Write stories you love and believe in.

Don't judge yourself against your prior work or anyone else's.

Always remember that you are doing the best you can with the resources you have today. Regarding the past, you did the best that was possible then.

Believe in yourself.

That's it for the moment, and all of this advice can be applied to artistry, creativity, vocation and work.

Take care of your own needs today.

this is really in connection with a previous blog about new(er) authors. Do your publishers submit your books to Booklist (an ALA publication)? It does review both science fiction and romance novels in paper and in hardback. Since most public librarians read this, if you get a book in this gets you into a variety of libraries and hopefully new readers.

Thank you. Yes, I have had reviews of both series (definitely the Heart books), by Booklist and Library Journal, so thank you for reminding me of it.
