Bloggers are in the first week of the A to Z Challenge. I'm posting quotes for every letter of the alphabet. Today, we address the letter "C". It's also the Insecure Writer's Support Group Day.
I'm usually too cautious. Fear of failure and making the wrong decision can be paralyzing.
I'm inspired by James Cameron's quote and by stories of successful authors.
I've recently read several books by Jennifer Armentrout. This author has successful books and an agent. She wrote a book in the New Adult category and could not find a publisher who would bite on it. She decided to take a risk and do something she'd never done-- self-publish. Her novel, Wait for You, debuted on USA TODAY Bestseller’s list at #61 and on New York Times’ at #25. You can read the story of this publication at http://www.jenniferarmentrout.com/new-york-times/ . Later, Jennifer L. Armentrout signed a six-figure, three-book deal With HarperCollins for Wait for You. You can read that story at this link.
