Inspiration and Advice for Writers

I want to point up two great blog posts by writing friends. In the first, Guy Saville outlines why we should never give up on our dreams. Guy’s post, Perseverance, Rejections and a Two-Book Deal tells of his twelve year journey to getting published by one of the UK’s top publishing houses. Something many writers forget is that overnight success usually takes several years to achieve.

Sue Moorcroft’s post, Promotion – radio interview, gives some great advice on how to gain much-needed publicity for authors. Sue has a writing pedigree as long as your arm, but is aware that today’s market requires authors to get out there and help promote their books.

Both posts are incredibly helpful – why not pop over to the blogs and take advantage of the wisdom on offer?
