Join the Party!

I would like to thank everyone who made the first week of The Writer's Block a success! Please take a moment to review this week's interviews and leave each author a comment. One of the most challenging things that authors have to do is promote their work. While their genres or stories may not be on your radar, their experiences and insights are invaluable. I have learned a lot from them and I am grateful that they allowed me to share those experiences with you. Stay tuned for next week's lineup!

Having said all of that, you, too, can make a valuable contribution to the literary community while gaining some exposure for your body of work. Raychelle Writes is looking for some great authors, illustrators, agents, publishers, bloggers, and editors to share their expertise from a unique perspective. Articles should offer personal experiences and lessons learned. (First person is o.k. I love "teachable" moments.) Keep word counts under 350 and be sure to use a concise "how-to" format. Longer articles will be considered. Please query me first. No re-prints, please.

Some sample topics may include:

1) How to Beat Writer's Block

2) Effective Self-Promotion

3) What to Do When Your Editor Hates Your Re-Write

4) Things to Avoid in the Pitch

5) How to Turn Words into Pictures

Please email all submissions to Include a brief bio, your website, blog link, Twitter handle, and Facebook page link. If approved, I will publish it here and promote the article through my networks. It will be archived indefinitely so that you may use it as part of your platform. Thank you in advance for helping me with the "heavy lifting"!

Keep your pen to the paper! Remember, inspiration is everywhere...
