I’m such a newbie at this author thing. There’s so much for me to learn. And I get so excited about the smallest things.
Yesterday, I popped into the library and I saw a flyer “Seeking Emerging Local Authors”. The title just made my heart soar. Does this mean there are actually people who want to find new authors like me? I read further and discovered that yes, my public library actually offers a program to support self-published books written by local authors. How did I not know this? This is wonderful, amazing news! I am on cloud nine!
You have to promise not to laugh when I tell you the next part. Promise. Okay? The book is donated by the author and they allow a maximum of one copy. One copy in a sea of books. Does this discourage me? No! I am still over the moon. This means that my book could potentially be available for anyone who wants to borrow it at the library. There’s only one word for that. Brilliant!
