Happy Birthday To YOU!

Actually, it's Happy Birthday to ME today, but in the spirit of giving and gifts, I'm passing on a present to you!

Have you finished that manuscript and are now hemming and hawing about the next step? Are you ready to publish but not completely satisfied with your completed book? Waiting for an opportunity to have another pair of eyes take a look? Well, now's your chance to move forward toward your dream of being a published author!

To celebrate my birthday, I'm giving a 25% discount on a proofreading or copyediting service to the next three people to sign a work agreement with me*!

So what are you waiting for? Let's celebrate together!

*Offer extends to the next three separate work agreements signed with Tanya Saari, Fiction Editor, or June 30, 2012, whichever comes first.

Spring Has Sprung!

Hello, everyone!
My apologies for the lack of recent posts. Our family suffered with some serious illnesses over the last couple of months and that set me back with a few things, including blogging.

However, here I am and I'm curious how all of you who made writing resolutions back in January are faring now? Any successes? Setbacks (we won't call them failures!)? I'd love to hear how things are going.

For those who've suffered setbacks, what happened? Was it a change in routine? Writer's block? Perhaps the challenge was overwhelming? Regardless of the reason,  I hope you've found a way to make writing a part of your life. If you want to be successful at this endeavor, you need to treat it as a job -- not a hobby.

Remember, as cliched as it is, tomorrow truly is another day. It's a chance to start fresh. So if that story is still rattling around in your brain, not leaving you alone, then perhaps it's a sign to sit down at your desk and give it another shot. The only person stopping you is you!

Good luck!
