As I write this, Kevin and I are attending our first writer’s conference together, the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writer’s Conference.
While here, The Rubber Band Slingshot Summer (book three in the Rubber Band series) was officially birthed.
Childbirth is hard, but so is publishing a book. The fun part is writing; the hard part is refining, editing, communicating, cover art, and many other things that a reader may not realize happens before they hold the hard copy in their hands and turn the first page.
Most authors must do all the marketing themselves. I recently enjoyed marketing by sharing a booth with a family friend at a local fair.
I loved talking to interested readers and making connections which I hope will turn into speaking engagements.
The Rocky-as-Elvis prop drew interest, and I had a few posers.

Yes, It’s hard work to be a writer, but I love my dream career. No matter what pains I must go through, I am going to keep bringing my writing babies into the world.
