Recently I have joined a wonderful online support group of approximately one hundred fifty authors who have debut books coming out in 2014. It is free and open to anyone who can satisfy the following requirements:
- be publishing your debut novel in 2014 (this must be your actual debut, not just your debut in kidlit)
- write young adult or middle grade fiction
- be working with a traditional publisher (listed in the Children’s Writers & Illustrators Market, the Children’s Book Council, or on the supplemental list below)
I have already reaped the benefits of an immediate support group with whom I can compare notes and network. Writing is a lonely business, and to all writers out there, I strongly recommend this group, or something comparable, when it is your time to move into the spotlight with your first book.
So with that said, follow me over to OneFourKidLit.wordpress.com where you will find my introductory interview with this wonderful group of new friends……
