On Supporting Other Authors

Today is the release day for my friend Katie's very first book, City of Secrets, and I'm soooo excited for her. Not only is Katie as sweet as she can be, but she's one of those people who is so supportive of every other author in our RWA chapter. So, first thing this morning, I bought her book. I hope everyone reading this does too, because not only am I sure it's going to be a great read (I've read the prologue so far and I'm already hooked!), but she deserves to see her name on the Wild Rose Press' best seller list.

Yesterday my RWA chapter hosted our annual Bookseller/Librarian Tea and we had nearly 20 local booksellers and librarians in attendance. It was great, and opened a dialogue that will yield speaking engagements, book signing and who knows what else. It's one of those things none of us could have done alone, but by each lending a hand, we'll all benefit.

OK - I'll step off my soap box - for now!

Omg Dara, I didn't see this until this morning :) Thanks for the support!! I really appreciate it :)

I'm so glad to hear the Tea went well!!

Agreed, Dara -- we may work in relative isolation, but without the 'community effort', very little happens.

I'm excited to read Katie's book, too. Is it just in ebook format now or can you buy the paper kind?

It's an ebook for now, Macy, but it's coming to print in November, I think.
