Never surrender!


<-- Today is Staking Cinderella's book birthday. This is my eleventh published book. Yes. Eleven. And a bunch of short stories.

I've survived two agents, close to 500 rejections, getting dropped by a publisher, watching micropubs close their doors and having to query a sold book all over again... and scoring two multiple book deals plus three standalones.

Eleven years ago I was trying to craft a decent query.

NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER SURRENDER.

Champagne and macarons on the sideboard. Celebrate with me, because without AW this road would've been a LOT longer!
