Yes, I've been sneaky with this one, but the day is just about here and I couldn't wait to speak up. I adore this cover. I adore this subject. And if there's one topic I can honestly say I adore speaking about, it's about being a shy writer. The Shy Writer Reborn: An Introverted Writer's Wake-up Call will be out later in March, and I wanted to give you a heads up before I exploded with enthusiasm.
And did I say I love this cover?
For years people have loved The Shy Writer,
a little book I put out via Booklocker.com in 2004. I wrote it in a fit
of frustration, then made myself edit it for several months before
releasing it. I've yet to speak at an event that I haven't met a writer
touched by it. So this past year, when writing groups started asking me
to talk about introverted writers and their quests to publish, I
listened, wondering if a sequel was in order. After all, The Shy Writer is almost ten years old!
it wasn't until I presented at a small conference and had dinner with a
literary agent that I took the project seriously. Mr. Brooks Sherman is
mentioned in my acknowledgements for being the final catalyst that made
me open a new file in Word and start pounding away on the keys to
create The Shy Writer Reborn.
That's all I'm saying for now. Keep watch on this blog and the FundsforWriters.com newsletters for the release.
