After five solid months of writing contests, publication deadlines, conferences, school fetes, graduations – kindergarten, high school, college – you’re probably ready to soak up some sun, hit the waves, chill in a swing on the front porch, hike a very large hill, or perhaps busy yourself in the garden. I most definitely am. Many of us had too many funerals to attend this year, too many unique personal challenges, and too many rejections.
Whatever your choice to escape, enjoy this time of the year when we all take a collective breath while the agents and editors at publishing houses take a respite.
So many of you gathered new accolades and marked the beginning of 2019 with new books to be devoured by your adoring public. Congratulations to all of you! Here are a few great authors to check out, including some newbies.
