After the Celebrations!

After the Celebrations

Ok, I just had a book published by a publisher. I have celebrated with my friends and with family. What next?

I’m reminded of watching a television show one night where a new writer had finished his first book and spent an awfully excessive amount of time talking about it.

A veteran writer invited him to a poker game. At that game was James Patterson and Michael Connolly. They grilled him a little. Michael Connolly asked him,

“Do you know what I did after my first book was published?”

The young writer answered, “No, I do not.”

Connolly replied, “I shut up and started on my next book.”

So friends and fam, Thanks for all the Likes and Hugs and Loves and Congrats!

But now it is time for me to shut up and work on my next book! (already in progress)
