I belong to several writing groups, but the first one I joined, and the one in which I have the most friends, is the Alaska chapter of Romance Writers of America (AKRWA). We have several published authors and some right on the cusp of publishing, so it’s always exciting to hear everyone’s news.
Lately, we have one member who is on a blog tour for her first book release (Lizbeth Selvig with The Rancher and the Rock Star, www.lizbethselvig.com). It is thrilling to follow Lizbeth on her tour and see other people say they love the book I first saw as a draft. And it is great to hear that DeNise Woods has been asked for a full and Sylvia Violetta for a partial manuscript by noted experts in the industry. I am so proud of my colleagues, and so glad their talent is being recognized. And who knows, maybe my turn will be next? The energy is positive and infectious, and makes me want to keep writing.(Not that I would quit anyway, but it adds to the fun.) Thanks ladies, for sharing your journey with us!
