Jody Hedlund today had a great post about the purpose of a fiction writer's blog. So with that said, I'd like to introduce you to a few of the other writers on the web who I've worked with over the last few years.
First I MUST mention Todd Newton. He's a very good friend of mine, beyond our experiences as writers. We hang out on an almost weekly basis, playing RPGs, discussing books, movies, and occasionally politics. And to top it off, he's a GREAT author!
Miranda Hardy is the only other writer that I can remember who had the time to beta-read my novel to completion. There's another writer who took a stab at it, but I haven't seen him active on the web in quite some time. That's not why I'm telling you about Miranda, though. Really, she took time out of her busy schedule to help out a fellow writer. She's very friendly, observant, and willing to help! Go show some support and check out her blog.
Next? I have bring up Hanna C. Howard again. I'm still beta-reading her novel, and I'm convinced that she's going to be HUGE when she gets a publishing deal! Go say hi, tell her I sent you!
It's important to make connection with other people in the industry in which you want to work. I've been VERY fortunate to work with these people, and I hope to continue to work with them in the future.
I have a local critique group that I just joined, and I'm looking forward to the work we're going to do together! They're equally as important as the folks I've mentioned here today, and I encourage each and every one of you to go make friends with other writers. Offer your support to them, and be willing ask for help. You'd be surprised at how many awesome people you'll meet!
