It could be you!

From time to time, us unpublished writers battling through the writing, revising, querying process just need a reminder that occasionally unpublished writers really do become published authors. Occasionally.

N.B. I seriously dislike the term "pre-published". To me it sounds pretentious and has a slightly icky air of entitlement to it. I am unpublished. I don't need to dress it up and make it sound like something it isn't.

Anyway, to get back to the point, here is that reminder.

Today is the release date for Alex J. Cavanaugh's sci-fi novel CassaStar.

So pop over to Alex's blog, say "Hi," join in the party and read more about his work. Then you can say "I knew him before he was famous."

  1. I love all the blogger love Alex has gotten today! It makes so happy to be a part of this community!

    You're right, prepublished sounds like it is dripping with entitlement. I'll stick with unpublished

  2. You said it, Melissa. There's a lot of support goin' around. Nice to have something to cheer about every once in a while.

  3. Yes you're right-I hadn't heard the term 'pre-published' until just now but it does put one in mind of someone with entitlement issues.
    My congratulations to your friend Alex! I'll definitely have to check out his page and get my read on.

  4. Indeed, I have checked out Alex's site and it's worth a visit. Then again, I reckon I could say I knew you before you were famous. Oh, you are already famous:-)
    Have a good day in beautiful British Columbia.
    Cheers, Gary.

I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
