I discovered an unexpected benefit from this writing thing…meeting other writers. Example, this past week-end I had a great lunch with Caleb H. Smith, an author who writes thrillers about an ex-navy Seal. If you like page turners, check him out at Amazon.com. His latest book, Reggae Jihad, is a lot of read for the money…it’s a hefty 462 pages!!!
Since writing is such a solitary process, it is nice to find another author who understands the amount of work that goes into putting together a book. And then, once the book is finished, that’s when the real work begins – the marketing and selling portion of the business. We had a great time exchanging stories and ideas and I’m looking forward to doing it again!
