If you could change one thing about your journey to publication what would it be?
"I would’ve worried less in the final stages. I was stressed the whole time between the sale of my first manuscript and the book’s production. It was wasted angst." - Beth Fantaskey, author of Jessica Rules the Dark Side.
"I’d remind myself to chill out a little. Writers are sensitive to begin with and every part of the process brings some new fear: First, will anyone want to publish my book? Then, will anyone want to read it? Will readers like it? Will they want to read the sequel? It’s easy to drive yourself crazy. Worth noting: Illuminate is about a girl learning to have confidence. Clearly, I’m still not a total expert!" - Aimee Agresti, author of Illuminate.
"I would have started sooner! It took be awhile to realize that in order to get published you have to sit down and write a whole book." - Suzanne Lazear, author of Innocent Darkness.
