ANY ADVICE FOR NEW WRITERS WHO WOULD ALSO LIKE TO BE TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED?
My advice to new writers is to finish! Finish the work you’re writing. Let it stand, come back to it, and then edit ruthlessly. Connect with other writers until you find your tribe (this can take a while) and learn as much as you can from the people that have gone before you. Read. Read a lot. Listen to feedback from your mentors and stay in the game if it makes you happy. Long term focus and commitment will be your friends.
I was recently interviewed by US based author, Diana Tyler. We chatted about traditional versus indie publishing, what are the best and worst parts of being a published author, advice for newbie writers, and what’s happening with my teen novella, Jenna’s Truth.
Read the whole interview over on Diana’s Blog.
