Ten Things I Wish I'd Known by Deb Kinnard

Please welcome guest writer Deb Kinnard to share these kernels of wisdom with us:

Ten Things I Wish I'd Known:

1. Publishing a novel will not validate me. Only God can do that.

2. Small press means what it says. It's a publisher, and it's SMALL.

3. Synopsis is not a four letter word.

4. The coolest assembly of words flying in formation does not a novel make.

5. Story is everything!

6. When they tell you, "The author does all her own promo" they mean it.

7. Dust is a wood preservative.

8. Delivery pizza for supper once a month will not fell your family.

9. There is no tighter confraternity of women than women writers.

10. God is faithful and true. His ways are not my ways . . . that means it all happens in HIS timing, not mine.
