Finding Mickey: A Beginner's Guide

Believe me, this is one post you would want to read!

A week ago or so, I went to an event organized by Creative Edge, a company that publicizes on behalf of authors. There were 10 authors present, and it was lovely to meet them and listen to their readings of their books. I was feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of promoting and selling my own book, since I had no previous knowledge in this regard. I thought spending an evening with some local Calgarian authors would help me understand and navigate my future roads better.

Wordfest: An Evening with Arthur Slade

Wordfest, a most exciting literary festival in Calgary, is in full swing this week. Writers from Canada and abroad gather here to talk about their works, launch their new books, spend time talking and discussing all things bookish. In other words, Wordfest is a heaven and a haven for bookworms like me. 
As a newly published author, I thought it should be appropriate and important for me to come out of my introvert shell and mingle with other fellow authors, and network with such individuals.

A Beautiful Aftermath

It has been a humbling yet exciting experience.

The past few months had been about editing, re-editing, checking spelling mistakes, lots of emails back and forth with Black Rose Writing, my publisher, and myself. Then there were decision making about the cover, looking over the inside design of the book, making sure I have thanked everyone properly, and that my dedication my perfectly written. My poor beloved husband made sure I was fed properly during this time, and that I hadn't gone insane from all the pressure and nervousness.
