Please join me at Tammy Salyer–Alternative Reality Engineer, where I’m explaining why it took me half a million words to learn how to make a “one-shot kill,” and why I believe any author can succeed, provided he or she has the fortitude to keep on putting one word after the other.
For those who don’t already know her, Tammy is the author of the SPECTRAS ARISE trilogy, a fantastic military science fiction series featuring former space marine turned smuggler Aly Erickson. I’ve read, and loved, both CONTRACT OF DEFIANCE and the sequel, CONTRACT OF BETRAYAL, and am eagerly awaiting the third installment.
Tammy is also a freelance editor, short story writer, blogger, and reviewer, and I’m honored and delighted to call her a friend. When she asked me to write a piece for her blog about my lengthy journey to publication, I was more than happy to oblige.
When you’re finished there, mark your calendars for tomorrow, because I’ll be signing and reading from CLAWS OF THE CAT at 7pm tomorrow night at the Barnes & Noble on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade. I hope to see you there!
