Interested in learning about the long and winding road to publication? Here's a blog post by fellow author @alayne_kay, who shares her own path and the paths of several others including: @kirsticall, @MelissaStoller @RobSandersWrite and @viviankirkfield:
@claralieu @CedarsStories @alayne_kay It's very true. A lot of artists who get notoriety are not necessarily the best, most talented, innovative artists. They simply the ones that persevered.
Major milestone completed! I can’t say about what 🤫 but I’m thrilled that I have a happy secret. Do authors get to level-up like D&D characters? Seriously, so grateful! ❤️ #amwriting #kidlit

I am so honored to represent @Jenny_Lundquist! When she sent me her middle grade fantasy about a magical library, I literally could not stop reading it. I read through dinnertime. I read past my bedtime. This is a really special story. ✨📚
