Hi Pam,

First, thanks for the kind words! I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed the Faderville books so much.

Unfortunately, libraries have limited space and budgets. But many will order books if you request them -- they might be even more inclined if you mention the stories take place in Kentucky. Worth a try.(less)

Hi Cindy,

I wrote my first novels in secret for many years. Only my husband and kids knew what I was doing. That gave me time to practice, think things through, and develop my voice. Sometimes, once people know you're writing, they ask about when you'll be published and details about the story or writing process itself - things I either didn't know the answer to or wasn't comfortable sharing. Publicly, however, I put myself out there by writing non-fiction articles for dog publications: many of them editorial-type pieces, but another was a study on dog genetics.

Another helpful thing was to join an online critique group. I lucked out and met some very kind and helpful people, but you can also run into well-intentioned but hurtful sorts this way. Just take what resonates for you and ignore what doesn't. Learning how to publish and market is a whole other ball of wax. www.kboards.com is the best place to find that info.

The bottom line is that you have to start somewhere. Write a blog. Write articles. Write scenes. Scheme plots. And read. A lot. Ask yourself what works and what doesn't as you read. Then, just write.

If you really feel the calling to write, do it. Dream big. Put yourself out there when you're ready. Do it because you like the way words sound, the impact they can have, and the ability of stories to transport readers and connect humanity.

Good luck, Cindy! And thanks for the kind words. I truly appreciate them.

Best,
Gemi(less)

Fear is powerful. It keeps us safe and preserves us to live another day. It also isolates and inhibits us. I keep hearing people in the media talk about what a scary time this is. I ask myself what it is we’re afraid of and what good does being afraid do for us? How much of the […]

“To live is to hold your child, your own flesh, your very blood, in your arms. To see her smile and wrap five tiny fingers around just one of yours. To live is to hold your wife close to you as you lie in bed and listen to her breathe -- to fall asleep, one against the other, fitted as if you were made for each other, and then awaked in the dawn when she turns to you and whispers your name. To live is to walk your land, knowing every tree and footpath and foxhole, and come home to the smell of a pot of stew, boiling over the fire. Home, wife, children. That is what it is to live.”
N. Gemini Sasson, Worth Dying For

“And in that I never saw more truth...than to truly live, was to have something worth dying for.”
N. Gemini Sasson, Worth Dying For

“I held my fingers out to the new day. I that virgin light -- bold strands of pink and orange breaking over the rim of the horizon -- I saw hope, and I wrapped my fingers around that light and brought it to my heart.”
N. Gemini Sasson, Worth Dying For
