When I first began writing I was a teenager. I didn’t know any other authors especially my age that wrote romance novels. I had big dreams of publication when I was older and eventually when life happened those and my original story got shelved. As I grew older I made friends with poets, artists, and other authors. I have since found there are some cultural shifts in writing that I for one am very glad to see. Authors are like sisters and brothers in many instances and we do whatever we can to collaborate either in work, knowledge, skills, or just understanding. We take on huge overwhelming topics like pirating (I will do a blog post on that some day, honest), rejections (we got those), and disappointing reviews (that’s something for another blog day maybe). I have found in my short time as a published author that I have so many shoulders to cry on and so many friends to celebrate with!
The same can now be said for readers, cover artists, editors, publishers, models, and anyone else interested in the world of books! With the advent of the Internet new ways to interact through blogging and social media have made it so we are more connected than ever with the very people who help make our writing dreams a reality, and the people who allow it to be a livelihood in so many countries!
It’s amazing, and as a social butterfly in all walks of my life I have truly enjoyed the community I have joined! Feel free to contact me on any of my social media accounts, I always respond and look forward to making new connections every day.
