Life Cycle of a Writer ~ Jan Brigden ~ the fear and ultimate joy of my first author talk …

A post from writer Jan Brigden who is so supportive of other writers and bloggers. So glad her debut on a speakers’ panel went well for her.

The Romaniacs

Earlier this year, my lovely publisher Choc Lit  announced they were off on tour and would be hosting events at various libraries around the country. On offer was an afternoon of author talks, Q&A sessions, fun quizzes, goody bags, a chance for aspiring authors to pitch their manuscripts to a Choc Lit editor. Oh, and plenty of choccies!

I slept on it, talked to Mr B and as much as the thought of it gave me palpitations, a lingering ripple of excitement in my tummy told me I should go for it; that it would be good for me.
