A couple of inspiring success stories
Posted by Amos M. Carpenter
Just a quick one to share two success stories that are inspiring to anyone looking to break into the ranks of (traditionally) published authors.
First, Lynette Noni, who is starting to officially freak out! She wrote a bunch of lovely blog posts last year about getting a publishing deal with Pintera Press, and since then has worked hard (I’m sure) to get her book, Akarnae, polished for publication. The big date for her is the 2nd of February 2015, so just three days away… if you haven’t already, go visit her blog and send her some love and well-wishes. 🙂
Good luck for the book release, Lynette! (The cover looks awesome, by the way.)
Sarah Joy Carlson
Secondly, Sarah Joy Carlson has just announced that she has signed with an agent in Ireland, which is also awesome news. In her post “Drumroll, please… I’ve signed with an agent!” she tells all about her journey of overcoming a few rejections, persisting and believing, and finally getting her dream agent for her novel, Hooligans in Shining Armour. (The blog post also contains pretty much every gif about excitement that currently exists on the Internet. 🙂 )
Congratulations to both of these great authors!
