Well I sent my first chapter in and now I'm just waiting to se if anything comes of it.
However, now I'm into the website I find myself visiting there at least once a day. It really is such a nice community of fellow writers, published and unpublished, who lend constant support to each other; it's inspiring, it really is.
It's just like the Struggling Authors website but on a slightly larger scale and I'm lovin' it! As we all know, I have very little time on my hands nowadays and writing did take a back seat for a long time but now, thanks to the pleasant, unconditional atmosphere on the site I'm starting to plan things again.
I'm slowly finding my fire again and it feels good, it really does feel good.
On another positive note, my friend Tee made me an offer yesterday that I couldn't refuse, ooer!
Well, I'll let her tell you about it as this is the email I received last night:
"Lorraine Holloway White (Authors on Show) asked me to join their team a while back but i was too busy at the time.
I now feel the time is right. So as well as being on NP I will be part of AOS.
Lorraine offered me a page which will also make me part of the admin.
As they promote books primarily, I decided to dedicate my page to unpublished authors. Promotion etc.
My first page will be an introduction of me. Then the second will be about ARC and Paul Rudd as I edited his book.
I would then like to feature you after that. Promotion of your book and maybe interview etc. Are you up for that?"
UP for it? UP FOR IT???
I'm so up for it I'm moonwalking… literally walking on the moon!
So I have to sort out a promo package for the Teester. It really is moving forward again, isn't it?
On a more somber note, a good friend of mine, Peter Roth passed away last week. We held a church service of remembrance for him. I attended the service before going to work and what an awful shift it was after it. I nearly had an accident with 30 tons of white hot liquid slag on the back of my wagon. It might have been better to have taken the day off actually.
Anyway, I'm planning to write something about him later on.
Right, that's it for now.
Please feel free to check NP out at this link.
And have a look at my chapter. Leave a message, preferably a nice one, if you feel the need. Look for R.R.Jones.
Take it easy.
