Julie Fugate’s Path to Publication

Today I welcome fellow Clean Reads author, Julie Fugate, to the blog to share her Path to Publication story.

Without further ado, here’s Julie…

*************************************

IMG_0531Thank you Christi, fellow writer and CleanReads author, for having me on your blog.

I’ve loved to read since I was little, and it was definitely my strong suit in school, to the point, I would be chosen to leave class and read stories to younger kids. Stories came natural and writing had always been a hobby . . . something fun to do.

I’d been involved in a creative writing class in High School but I don’t think the teacher cared for my fantasy stories. With college looming, becoming a Writer didn’t seem practical when it came to paying the bills. Yet, I would continue to weave stories and create characters in my head.

Left with the choice to try and fail, or not try at all, I started doling out books to family and friends with mixed results. The stories played out like a movie in my head, but my problem was getting that story down on paper and across to a reader. I was also discovering what kind of writer I wanted to be. Young adult was a given since I enjoyed reading that genre. I wanted to write about characters with issues, problems, and hard circumstances, which included anti-heroes and underdogs. I also wanted to show a God who is alive and active in people’s lives, but with that said my characters (as well as readers) may not accept or even believe along those lines. As you probably already guessed my faith in God runs deep. Once I found myself sleeping, eating, dreaming . . . overwhelmed with these stories I knew I had no choice but to push myself.

In 2013, I joined the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writer) and began entering my contemporary books in a few contests. I quickly found contests were not my forte and again I seemed to be lacking (especially with grammar). I got involved with their general critique group and began learning about action beats, adverbs, white space, and showing vs. telling, etc. Every spare moment I wrote and re-wrote. The first conference I attended that same year I had some interest from a small publisher and agent. It bolstered my confidence, but knew in my heart I wasn’t ready.

Also in 2013, I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo, and picked the most fun story concept that had been rattling around in my head. Teen, Angels, Human-Angel Hybrids, and most of all I wanted to show an involved God. I succeeded and out of that Kings of Renown was born.

In 2014, I joined RWA (Romance Writers Association) so I could be part of YARWA, their young adult group. At every turn I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I again participated in NaNoWriMo and succeeded in writing the next installment of the Kings of Renown series.

I’m now involved in a permanent critique group I trust with writing and life. I’ve learned a lot since beginning this journey. I discovered I wasn’t writing Christian fiction but Inspirational fiction since I dealt with life’s harder themes yet still had religious elements. Not everyone will like what I write. I’ll always be learning and growing as a Writer and a Believer. Writing wasn’t about me, but a way to provide readers entertainment and hope through Christ if they face dark circumstances.

In 2015, I had prepped Query’s and a Proposal to start sending out. At that same time I participated in a YARWA online party, which is where I met Stephanie, the owner of CleanReads. She asked for a copy of my story and I was honored when she asked me to join her family of authors. A dream came true when BETRAYAL, Book One in the Kings of Renown series was published in November, 2015.

Love and prayers,

Julie Fugate

Note from the Author on the book’s inspiration:

I wrote “Accept this Dandelion” in a silly, sleep-deprived mood and thought that was it. But the characters in the book kept coming back to me, begging me to continue the story. Eventually, I listened, turned the tables, put a woman in charge, and created “Dandelions on the Road.” I got so much joy from writing it, I’m glad I did! Now I just hope those reading it get even half the pleasure I got from writing it.

Lisa Cole Orchard’s Path to Publication

Today I’m very excited to say that Lisa Cole Orchard, a fellow Clean Reads author, is sharing her Path to Publication story. Without further ado, here’s Lisa…

**************

20111210_ABS_1296[1]

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you! I’m Lisa Orchard and I’m a guest today at Christi’s blog. Thanks Christi for having me here.

She wanted me to share my path to publication with you. I’m sure everyone’s path is a little different and I think that’s great because it gives aspiring writers hope they too can achieve publication no matter which path they choose.

I knew I wanted to be a writer in fifth grade. I even wrote a few of my own mysteries back then. I illustrated them too, but let’s just say my writing talents surpassed my artistic ones.

Of course, I had other goals too and they took precedence over my writing. I went to college and received a degree in Marketing, found a job, got married, and had kids.

So, it wasn’t until I made the decision to stay home with my kids that I started writing stories again. That’s when I created my first series “The Super Spies.”  At the time I started writing the first book in the series, “The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer,” I was just trying to get my writing chops back. It’d been a while since I’d written anything and I wanted to see if I still had it in me.

So, I joined a writing group and brought my manuscript to them, four pages at a time. Their constructive criticism helped me and my writing improved. My goal at that time was to finish my novel.  When I did that, I wondered if I could get any interest from agents. So I sent out query letters, a lot of them. I’m not sure how many. I got some bites, agents interested in the premise of the story, but there were mostly rejections.

Undeterred, I asked the agents, why they didn’t like my story. I wasn’t upset, I just wanted to improve my writing. One agent responded and told me she didn’t like the narrative voice. I asked her if the story would be better if it were written in third person instead of first. She said yes it would be.

So, you guessed it. I rewrote the book in third person. After all, what did I have to lose? After I had gotten it rewritten, the first publisher I sent the new manuscript to, accepted it. Now I have three books in that series and three in a Young Adult Coming of Age series titled, “The Starlight Chronicles.”

Although rejection stings, don’t take it too personally. Just look at it as a bump in the road that puts you on the right path. Your own path to publication.

My covers and blurbs are below and I’m running a special promotion for “The Starlight Chronicles.” The whole series is available in a boxed set and the set is on sale for $.99!

Thanks for reading my post. Where are you on your writing journey? I’d love to hear from you so leave a comment.

TheStarlightChroniclesBox1400x2100Lark Singer is seventeen years old and already on the way to a brilliant music career. But as she and her band, Starlight, gear up for a competition, life seems to be throwing her a few curve balls. The mysteries of her past seem to be unraveling, and she’s no longer certain she wants to know those answers or how knowing about her past will affect her difficult relationship with her mother. And when her best friend, Bean, changes things between them, all her plans for a musical future are placed in jeopardy. How can she balance her complicated personal life to keep her musical goals on track?

BOX SET CONTAINS ALL THREE BOOKS IN THE STARLIGHT SERIES:

Gideon Lee             Lark Singer               Starlight

Buylink: Amazon

 

About Lisa:

Lisa Orchard grew up loving books. She was hooked on books by the fifth grade and even wrote a few of her own. She knew she wanted to be a writer even then. Her first published works are the “Super Spies Series.” These stories revolve around a group of friends who form their own detective squad and the cases they solve. “The Starlight Chronicles,” is the next series that Lisa created with musical misfit, Lark Singer as her main character.

Lisa resides in Michigan with her husband, Steve, and two wonderful boys. Currently, she’s working on the next book in the Starlight Chronicles Series along with a few new ideas that may turn into stand-alone novels. When she’s not writing she enjoys spending time with her family, running, hiking, and reading.

Help the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund!

2015-Cowboy-Christmas-Blog-Tour

Welcome to the 2nd annual

Cowboys and Christmas

Blog Tour!

Raising funds and awareness for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund

Ring in the Holidays with a Helping Hand

The idea for my sweet Rodeo Romance series started with The Christmas Cowboy, a story that invaded my thoughts while Captain Cavedweller and I sat in the Las Vegas airport after the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, waiting for our flight home.

Indulging in some serious people watching, I couldn’t help but notice the sea of cowboy hats and friendly smiles. “What if,” started playing loudly in my head. What if there was a cowboy, a rodeo cowboy? What if he met a girl at an airport? What if they fell in love? What if she was a driven career woman? What if she despised cowboys? What if…

Once I started writing the story, I did some research about what would happen if a cowboy sustained a serious injury at a rodeo. That research eventually led me to the Justin Sportsmedicine Team where Rick Foster kindly answered my many questions.

IMG_4193

At rodeos across the country, the Justin Sportsmedicine Team offer medical care to injured athletes at Sportsmedicine trailers. Mr. Foster also introduced me to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund.

When professional athletes are faced with serious injuries, it often results in financial hardship. They don’t have a guaranteed salary or provisions for income upon injury. While injuries are part of the business of rodeo, financial worries don’t necessarily have to be par for the course.

The Justin Boot Company formed a partnership with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) in 1989 to establish the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund (JCCF). The fund was granted 501-C3 status as a non-profit charity organization in 1991.

The idea behind the JCCF is to assist professional rodeo athletes and their families in the event of catastrophic injuries resulting from professional rodeo activities. The fund helps lift the burden of financial hardship when a serious injury interferes with the careers of those who have dedicated their lives to the sport.

Impressed by the fund and the help they offer, I decided to make a contribution by donating a portion of my book sales to JCCF. This is my third year to donate part of my proceeds to the organization, although it is the only the 2nd annual Cowboys and Christmas Blog Tour.JCCF logo

November 1 through December 24, ten percent of the net proceeds from all Shanna Hatfield book sales will be donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. Every book purchased during this promotional period adds to the donation total. Don’t forget to add books to your Christmas lists!

New Releases

Capturing Christmas CoverCapturing Christmas is the third installment in the sweet holiday western Rodeo Romance series.

Life is hectic on a good day for rodeo stock contractor Kash Kressley. Between dodging flying hooves and babying cranky bulls, he barely has time to sleep. The last thing Kash needs is the entanglement of a sweet romance, especially with a woman as full of fire and sass as the redheaded photographer he rescues at a rodeo.

Determined to capture the best images possible, rodeo photographer Celia McGraw is fearless and feisty. Not one to back down from a challenge, her biggest risk isn’t in her work. Danger lurks in the way her heart responds to one incredibly handsome stock contractor. Will Kash and Celia capture the spirit of the season?

Grey Places

My Critique Partner, Christi Corbett has been after me to set up and actually maintain a WordPress site since sometime around the passage of the last ice age. Like many of the dinosaurs, I almost didn’t evolve enough to survive that ice age. I was clinging to Blogger, which, I’ll still continue to lurk and follow people there, but it’s gotten impossible to deal with. Often half of the few comments left on any posts I manage to write are from spambots, and often I’m forced to fight with managing blogs I follow because they randomly filled with hundreds of fake spam posts from fake spam blog accounts. So, here I am!

On my Blogger blog, I wrote posts which covered a little of everything. Since I was still in the throes of trying to ‘make it’ as a writer, I felt like I needed to have a lot of…

Without further ado, here’s Wendy…

**********************

TheGovernessDebut453x680Can the governess charm both the spoiled child and the haughty earl?

After her parents died in an accident and her brother gambled away her inheritance and dowry, leaving her to fend for herself while he ran off to the colonies, Miss Felicia Scott must find a way to keep a roof over her head. No longer able to enter the Marriage Mart but certainly not of the servant class, the only option is to find a position as governess.

Her luck finally turns when an acquaintance refers her to the haughty widower, Lord Victor Astley, Earl of Standish. His spoiled, seven year old daughter has been through three governesses in the 18 months since her mother died.

The earl is highly doubtful the young, inexperienced Miss Scott could possible manage his irascible daughter but since he is desperate he agrees to give her a chance. Much to the astonishment of the entire household Felicia succeeds beautifully, bringing the little lady under control and brightening the lives of everyone she comes in contact with, including the jaded earl.

Will her joyful spirit be able to finally melt his resistant heart?

*The Governess’ Debut is a 24,000 word Sweet Regency Romance Novella*

Excerpt:

Lord Victor Astley, the fifth Earl of Standish, was surprised by his own undisciplined reaction when the young woman was announced. He was always in control of himself and his environment. It was decidedly out of character that he would be unnerved by the presence of a young woman in his library.

“Miss Felicia Scott to see you, my lord,” Alfred, the earl’s aging butler, had announced in even tones, not revealing anything about his own reaction to the elegant young woman who had been recommended to fill the post of governess to the earl’s hoyden of a daughter.

The earl nodded to her from behind his desk, not bothering to come around to bow over her hand.  “Thank you, Alfred.  Please see that a tea tray is brought in momentarily.”

Miss Scott dipped into a respectful, deep curtsy, forgetting for a moment that her new position in the servant class did not require the varying degrees of courtesy.  When it did cross her mind she dismissed the thought, surmising accurately that the haughty looking earl would consider the extra depth to be his due.

Felicia had made every effort to appear as serious and trustworthy as possible.  Her sober gown of brown worsted material was just perfect for whatever activities she would be involved in while chasing after a seven-year-old child.  Realizing she looked quite young, she had scraped her thick, curling, brown hair into the severest hairstyle she could manage, hoping it lent her an air of maturity.

Of course, in her innocence, she was unaware of the things that were impossible to hide – her obvious breeding was evident in her proudly erect carriage.  Intelligence shone from her wide, shining, green eyes as she glanced around the earl’s handsomely appointed library.

Her own governess had done her best to prepare her but since this was the first time Felicia had applied for a position she was somewhat uncertain as to proper protocol.  The earl was still gazing at her with a rather arrested expression on his severe, but still handsome face, so she surmised that he was waiting for her to say something.

“Thank you for agreeing to see me, my lord.”

The earl blinked away his momentary inertia.  Despite the glowing recommendations he had received it was obvious to him she would be impossible for the position.  He was uncomfortable with the strange reaction he had felt to her presence, besides she was much too young. There was no way she would be able to control his daughter.  He supposed he still had to interview her.

TC Booth’s Path to Publication Story

Today I’m featuring TC Booth’s Path to Publication story. Welcome, Tammi!

********************

me 2First, I’d like to thank Christi for hosting me on her blog.  My journey in writing began at a young with the love of poetry. I won my first poetry contest in third grade and had my picture taken for the paper. It was a pretty big deal.  Thinking back over my childhood, I realized that my mind was always geared to be a writer. My imagination stirred up interesting plots and characters even in play time.

As an adult, writing became my escape from reality. There’s nothing like getting lost in story I’m writing.  I shared stories with my family and eventually began to write children’s stories for my class.  I decided to give a try at publishing one of the children’s stories I wrote. It was published, and the feeling of seeing my characters come to life was unbelievable. Unfortunately, I was naïve in the world of publishing and didn’t have a positive experience.

Lesson learned, I did my homework when I decided to take the step into publishing of my young adult novella. I found a critique partner and paid someone to professionally edit it before I submitted it to Stephanie at Clean Reads, then Astraea Press.  She sent me book contract and Beyond Vica was published six months later.

Last November I took on the challenge of NaNoWrMo. A challenge it was! In order to try and reach the goal of writing 50,000 words in a month, I had to get up at four thirty each morning to write before school started. I didn’t make the goal by the end of the month, but managed to hammer out 43,000 words. I finished up the novel in December, had it edited and submitted it to Stephanie in February. My first young adult novel, To Be Honest, came out in July of this year.   I’m very grateful for Stephanie and all of the support at Clean Reads. Publishing with Clean Reads has been positive and professional in comparison to my first experience.

I haven’t had success if finding another publisher for my children’s stories, but will try again eventually.  Right now, I feel my niche is young adult contemporary fiction.  The topics I choose to center the stories around are relevant to young people today. I absolutely love to create the characters. There is nothing like seeing your work published and characters come to life. I’m truly blessed to be able to pursue my passion.

*********************

ToBeHonest_1400x2100After a freak accident left Starla Emerson with a deformed hand, her self-esteem dropped and her anxiety rose. She tries desperately to avoid attention at Cedar High. Star relies on her best friend Ally for moral support, along with her crush worthy boyfriend Jared.

Starla’s world is turned upside down when her family moves. She finds herself the new girl at Centerville High School where she’s the target of an Internet bully. Newfound friends help Starla plan a counter attack to expose the bully. The plan backfires and lands Star in a mountain of trouble.  Will she have the courage to be honest about who was involved in her plan? Once the truth is out…there’s no turning back.
