I spent my Christmas’ Eve doing a fair amount of reading. I came across a post that I found wonderful and generous, and I can’t help but share it with you as well.

Have you ever wondered why it takes so long for books to get published once they’ve been written? Understanding the process helps the aspiring writer arm himself with patience. It also helps appreciate all the effort it takes for a good book to land in the hands of readers.

Award-winning novelist and poet Ellen Hopkins, who regularly lands on the coveted New York Times bestseller list, takes her readers behind the scenes of the publishing process. She demystifies it by sharing her experience on her blog.

Some of Ellen’s books include the bestselling titles CRANK (a series), BURNED, IMPULSE, and her latest release, TRICKS, which deals with teen prostitution.

Have a wonderful day.

    1. Hi Karen,

      I so agree with you. It’s like a process of learning from each other and I find it enriching. I’m particularly impressed with Ellen’s openness on the topic.
