Welcome to the 'Taste The Rainbow' blog hop, hosted by author Draven St. James.
I've decided to Pay it Forward with my post. I've met so many truly wonderful people since I blew into the LGBT writing community four years ago. Authors that don't mind reading chapters and telling you the truth about progression. Beta Readers that don't mind reading your book and responding truthfully. The last thing you want when you are writing a book is for someone to say "oh it's great!" or "I loved it!" when it's a steaming pile of shit. I've been blessed with honest and remotely tactful mentors in this business and I don't think I'd have gone as far with out them.
Jayson James beta read my first book for me and we exchanged countless emails with issues he found or suggestions's he'd make. I thank you!
Sandrine Gasq Dion has been available at a moments notice to read a chapter I was struggling with and tell me it was fine or I don't think so, try again. I love you!
Andrew Grey has always been a sounding board. I question something I'm thinking of doing and if he's online or I'm talking to him, he'll say.. "Just do it!" I adore you!
My peeps over at Staccato Publishing! All of you are dear, dear friends and my blog would not be what it is today with Staccato. In my writing though, the grand pubah and Editor in chief of Staccato, Author HK Savage beta read for me. She had notes and helped me re-write a particularly hard part in the story that I just couldn't get right. I LOVE YOU ALL!
So if you are a budding author out there, just getting your feet wet, drop me a line. I don't think I could ever repay the generosity of the people within this community I've found through writing, but I'd love to try!
Be sure to follow all the stops on the hop as each stop has a giveaway!
