Six years ago I saw a piece in Writers' News from a publishing company called Need2Know who wanted authors for self-help books. I sent a proposal for a bullying book and they wanted to publish it. Bullying - A Parent's Guide came out in 2005. Now I have another book coming out called Caring for Your Dog: The Essential Guide. It will be out on Dec 1st 2010 and will be available as an electronic book, a large print book and a normal print book. I am so excited. More so because the book is dedicated to my beloved dog Vic who sadly passed away a year ago after a courageous battle with epilepsy. He was 13 and a half.
My story just goes to show that looking through WN every month can get you published.
Has anyone else been published as a result of something they read in WN or WM?
I am now working on a crime novel and have set up a blog called Ramblings of a Frustrated Crime Writer at http://ramblingsofafrsutratedcrimewriter.blogspot.com
I hope you'll drop by, as its so lonely being a writer as we all know.
