I went to the West Hollywood Bookfair last September 26, 2010. I met some wonderful authors, who were kind enough to give aspiring authors such as myself some advice:
Author of THE LOST CHILDREN.
Author of THE WISH STEALERS.
I wish I had more money with me that day. I would’ve bought many copies of all the authors’ books and gave them away to family and friends. Ah well, maybe I’ll start saving now for next year’s bookfair.
All the authors I met that day were warm, fuzzy (especially Michael Reisman, who had on a furry bathrobe in the 100 degree heat) and readily gave advice. Their eagerness to talk to their fans, and their willingness to share their writing secrets just confirmed my belief that the writing community is a close-knit and supportive one, and that all authors are helpful to other writers because they know the difficulties one must overcome in order to get published.
