Author CJ Darlington Encourages Us to Take the First Step Toward Our Dreams — 5 Comments

  1. Wow, Jeri! Great to hear from you and how you wrote the Valkyries series. I truly loved those books. Glenda… thanks for your comment too! I hope the ebook encourages! And Lyn… thank you so much for having me here. 🙂

  2. Glenda, I’m not surprised by the mixed critiques. There’s a lot of that even for authors who’ve published. One house will reject another will buy the proposal. Who knows?

    But have you finished the manuscript? I think that’s the most important part. I wrote 5 manuscripts before my first sold. Practice makes if not perfect–better!

  3. Enjoyed your post. I bought the book and hope it will encourage me. I have been a little discouraged. I have sent out my first chapter many, many times but the critiques contradict each other and no one wants to read the story. I know it’s a good story but I can’t afford to pay for an editor and know no one who writes around my home. Thank you for the book and for your help. I love your writing.

  4. Thank you for the kind words. It looks like you are well on your way in your writing. But I will tell you that I spent 12 years writing VALKYRIES (what Moody published as VALKRIES: Some Through the Fire and VALKYRIES: All Through the Blood). And I do regard it as better than most of the fiction as I have written. All writers have highs and lows, good material and better material. Write what you most passionately believe, and develop a story that you enjoy reading. I no longer write fiction, and I am happy that you so enjoyed a book that I think marked the best I would ever do.
