Welcome. I wanted to share with you some of the topics discussed at the meeting. (No, it wasn't all about sex!) Damn!
There was a lot of talk about the importance of such things as choosing a publisher. Right now, according to some of the editors/publishers present at the meeting, it is a writer's market out there. There is a place for every well written book out there. It is the writer's job to find that place.
Of utmost important is finding the right publisher. They do become like family. You should feel that way about your publisher. They make us happy (and they are just as happy to give us that first contract to sign or the mock book cover to review!) They picture us doing the happy dance and they love that they were the cause of such happiness! Happy writers, write better! They want to please their publisher for believing in them. A good publisher wants you to stay with them for years.
I 've found my family at HELLFIRE. I love everyone involved in the company. We root for one another and our Exec. editor is always there for us, no matter what we need!
Watch for part 2: The importance of the right Book Cover, Blurb and yes the Dedication/Acknoweldgement page and your assigned editor's role in bringing the book to fruition. Why these are critical to a books success!
Part 3 Tips given on writing erotica. I learned some things there, let me tell yah!
Best regards always,
