I have cut back on my posting, but today I have some news and want to share it. But first a little true story about me. Yeah, me. Who else would I know so well?
When I was a little girl I had a dream. In it I was just like a kite, able to float above the world, my home, and see everything. My family was in the yard, holding the kite string and calling to me. "Nancy, come down, come down, don't fly away."
I've realized that this dream is prophetic. My family held me back. I was the artist, they were all about education, science, everyday practicality stuff. While I am not opposed to any of those things, and I value them all, and believe that they are necessary and worthy. But to be defined by science, told I couldn't make a living with my art was a negative influence.
So you have a book, you want to see it published, your friends and family members tell you it's wonderful. You know in your heart it is wonderful. The publishing houses and or agents have all turned you down. Others are making it Big with e-books. Money is tight. You can't afford an editor. Does this sound familiar? I've been there with the added benefit of critique partners, not just friends and family.
What to do? How do you stretch your wings and fly.?
You must decide what to do and here is a link that might help. If you don't want to read the whole thing just read what she says about editing. Then realize, there are editors who will work with you financially. Mine does. If lightening hits your kite, you'll want to be prepared.
