Just wanted to let you know about my new blog, myfirstbookdeal.com, where I'll be posting regular interviews with successful authors about how they got their first publishing deal.
Posts so far include:
- Orange Prize-nominated author Aifric Campbell explains how her background as a high-flying City trader helped her to secure her first book deal;
- Booker-longlisted writer (and former Africa correspondent for The Irish Times) Ed O'Loughlin on his lucky break after 14 rejections.
If you could spread the word to aspiring authors, give it a mention on Twitter, or even just have a browse, I'd be extremely grateful!
