Publishers Weekly featured this story of an author who trekked through 28 inches of snow to get to the launch party for her young-adult novel. This is no surprise to most aspiring writers. (I, personally, would crawl through shattered glass to get to my book launch party.)
It is a heart-warming story, and especially interesting for readers and writers alike to note that the author had these characters on her mind for years before beginning her novel, and that she went through at least twelve drafts. Kudos to her!
Happy reading and writing,
