Here are a few terrific examples of what could happen in a writers’ life before, during and after publication.
As a debut-author-in-waiting, complete with white gloves and pearls, you discover that The Debutante Ball is looking for debut authors for the class of 2010! Knowing how much coming out and dancing every week at the Ball would mean — both in emotional support and publicity –, you read From the Debutante Ball — Class of 2009 and fill out the application. Good luck!
As Kristina Riggle, having just launched Real Life & Liars, you are interviewed on Authors on Air, discussing whether Mira is based on a real person, your songwriting background, and your next book. For anyone who missed that LIVE event, you offer the opportunity to catch the podcast here.
Also, as Kristina, you’re hitting the road this summer and anyone living in the Michigan and Illinois area can meet/greet and have you sign their copy of RL&L at one of many scheduled appearances beginning this week through the end of July.
And, as CJ Lyons, you recently learned that your debut medical suspense, Lifelines, has been nominated for a Book Buyers Best Award. Lifelines is also a finalist in the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense as well as the National Readers Choice Award. Congratulations!
And so life continues for authors beyond their pages.
