Being a self-published author sometimes has big perks. While I know many traditionally published authors are awesome and regularly interact with their fanbase, from those I’ve contacted I’ve never had a response. Cut to, little old me.
A year ago In late 2011, a young woman contacted me to see if I could give her any advice about publishing a book about marching band. Delighted, I instantly responded. We corresponded throughout 2012 and she would give me updates to the process. Imagine my elation when she e-mailed me today to announce the book was finished and available for purchase on Lulu!
While I was only a very small part of her journey as an author, I have some pride in knowing I still had something to do with it.
So, today, I celebrate Kaitlyn Auer and her first book, The Year of Champions. All the best, Katy!
