As you may remember, a couple of contests at the blog Miss Snark’s First Victim directly resulted in me signing with my wonderful literary agent, Ammi-Joan Paquette, and selling my first novel (currently titled The Delicious Double Life of Gladys Gatsby, set for release in 2014). So now, to celebrate, I’m taking part what will hopefully be the first of the Annual Authoress’s Success Story blog tours!
Authoress Anonymous has built a strong and supportive community at Miss Snark’s First Victim (aka MSFV). There, writers can participate in contests designed to help them practice giving and receiving critiques, polish their hooks, shine up query letters, and gain exposure to literary agents…and, in the case of some writers, get offered representation or publishing deals!
Over 20 professional authors now owe some part of their successes to Authoress, the incredibly generous people who participate in her contests, and her blog. Some of us in this group have decided to come together to celebrate MSFV and Authoress, and to help cross-promote each other’s work.
So every day in the first two weeks of August, a different author will be posting an interview of one of our fellow Success Stories. There might even be some giveaways, so don’t miss a single blog post! Make sure to tune in to everyone’s blogs from August 1st to the 15th, and to follow the hashtag #MSFVSuccessStory on Twitter for more details, tidbits, and info. See you there!
