How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers: Tips for those looking to get their work published/break into the industry.

#1 Be fearless

#2 Grow a thick skin. As Tom Hanks says, “There’s no crying in baseball! (A League of Their Own) Same goes for publishing.

#3 Be receptive to suggestions for improvement but take any advice with a grain of salt and always go with your gut.

#4 Check your ego at the door. No matter where you are in your writing career there’s always room for growth and improvement.

#5 Don’t throw in the towel. Each rejection should fuel your determination not to give up and to continue honing your craft.

#6 If you can do all of the above, then start studying. Read blogs about the publishing industry—find out what books are selling. Read the craft of writing blogs. Join a writing organization. Join a critique group. Learn from published authors, then put all that knowledge to work and write.


#7 Don’t beat a manuscript to death. If your work has received several rejections even after you’ve revised according to an editor or agent’s suggestions and the book is still being rejected then put it aside and begin a new one.  You’ll be surprised by how much your writing improves with each new book.

 A DIFFERENT KIND OF HERO 

Everyone knows Victor Vicario—he's the scarred loner who's on his way to the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas. But no one knows about the guilt that drives him. And until he achieves his goal, there's no room in his life for attachments. 

So when Vic is given temporary custody of his young nephew, he is torn. He can't turn his back on family, but how can he look after a kid when he's traveling the rodeo circuit? Then he runs into feisty barrel racer Tanya McGee and makes her an offer. She helps him with Alex, and he'll pay her rodeo expenses. The problem is their little "family" starts to feel all too real.
