Did you ever see the movie Limitless? One of my favorite lines is right toward the beginning of the film where we see a truly disheveled Bradley Cooper walking through the streets. His character is narrating the scene and says: My excuse for looking like this? I'm a writer.
I really did LOL with that one. Mostly because I can relate.
One of the aspects of having an author platform is being...well...visible.
After years of keeping my writing cards close to my chest and spending my working days looking fairly disheveled, becoming visible has been one of the more challenging things to do.
So I'm taking baby steps.
And I'm sharing those baby steps with you Paper Waiters!
Here is my Intro Interview on the OneFour KidLit blog, where I talk about my sometimes arduous path to being published.
And here is my first ever YouTube video, made with assistance from my ten year old!! The OneFours have a YouTube channel, and each month we'll be covering a different topic. April's topic is INSPIRATION. In my video I talk about some of what inspired me to write THE PROMISE OF AMAZING. If you have a chance, take a look!
