Joelle Anthony on Breaking In

I promised more posts on method, and there have been some wonderful recent posts by other authors on their journeys into this tough industry. Remember the heartfelt post I told you about from Shelli Johannes Wells?

Well, here's a new one for you - Joelle Anthony visited Darcy Pattison's blog "Fict!on Notes: Believe in Your Story" recently to relate her journey to publication in "The Short Sixteen Years to Becoming a Published Author".

What strikes me most deeply about both of these stories is the incredible dedication it takes most people to break into this industry. It's a hard road, but it can be done!

Thanks to Wanda Johnson of the SCBWI Mid-South Board for the heads up!

Thanks for the shout out! And thanks to Wanda too. I'm glad people are finding it inspiring and not depressing because I think there's way more people with my experience than overnight successes. We've got to stick together!

Or "they're" if I want to be grammatically correct! Good thing I have an editor for my book.

I'm so glad you stopped by Joelle! I think yours is an inspiring story and I couldn't be happier for you on the release of your first novel - congratulations!
