Alex Cavanaugh, we have another great day of sharing and networking. Today a whole bunch of bloggers are 'paying it forward' by linking to three other bloggers who have helped us along the way in our career paths.
I'm sure many people are having the same difficulty with this as I am. So many people have helped me, how should I narrow it down to three? There are a group of people who helped me early in my career and a large number of people who have helped me recently. So I'm going to combine some of the old and the new friends.
Natalie Damschroder is my 'go to' girl for so many things. She really knows her way around the publishing world. I've sent her lists of questions and she gets back to me right away with the answers. She's a multi published author, a busy working mother and a good friend. I met her through my local chapter of RWA back in the days when I was a member. You can meet her at Indulge Yourself.
In my recent venture of reclaiming my rights to my fantasy series and self-publishing it, I again turned a fellow, local writer. Cate Masters might be the most prolific writer I know. She has self-published some of her novels and was indispensable to me. I might have sent her a dozen emails to ask her advice and help. She also finds time to blog nearly every day. I can't say enough about her knowledge and willingness to help other writers. She's also the driving force behind a group blog formed by numerous writers from central Pennsylvania, The Susquehanna Writers.
Someone who might not even know how much she's helped me is L. Diane Wolfe. If you have a book to promote or want to know anything about blogging, publishing or just read some speculations about where this crazy business is going, you need to visit Spunk on a Stick. And you'll get a good laugh at least once a week. Probably Alex and Diane gave me the most clues on how to grow my blog audience. Thanks.
I hope you find some more great blogs to follow with this little blog fest. I'll be visiting lots of new blogs but I won't catch up to everyone until Saturday because I'm going to visit my son at college(PSU) today. Can't wait to meet some new friends.
