I'll start off…
I begin each day with the edits to my current W-I-P, which I'm determined to hire an editor for by the end of August.
I have been reaching out to children's book festivals in the tri-state area (NY, NJ and CT) to participate in. So far I'm lined up for Collingswood Book Festival with potential prospects in 2015 for Hudson Children's Book Festival and Children's Book Festival Hillsborough Public Library. Also, a few others for possibly this fall, but not at the liberty to reveal at this time.
Research magazine markets to submit short stories and articles to.
Research and register for children's book conferences and writing conferences. I'm attending the Muse Online Writer's Conference in October and will be attending SCBWI Metro NY Tuesday Professional Seminars in NYC.
Read, read, and read some more in the genre I write for.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, I don't want to bore you with my writing life!
Looking forward to your responses.
