Sound preachy? Well, I have the BEST example of this. A gorgeous writing friend of mine, Robyn Grady has just SOLD her first book to Silhouette Desire! Robbie has been SOOOO close to a sale for about two years. So close that she could taste it but it didn’t happen. Many of us would have packed up our manuscripts and gone home pouting. And I’m sure a bit of pouting got done, but after that she dusted herself down, kept writing, kept improving and took a new tack. She entered competitions. This year she blitzed them but still she didn’t sell.
Persistence paid off and today she is dancing on air as she joins a bevvy of new Aussie and Kiwi writers for that line. Other Aussie/NZ Desire authors are Bronwyn Jameson ,
Nalini Singh , Jan Colley , Yvonne Lindsay ,Tessa Radley , Maxine Sullivan and Paula Roe.
