Introduce Yourself: Introducing Guest Author Dan Alatorre

Yall remember when I was featured on this blog? No…! Well, you must have not been following then. It’s here, hunt it up…

In the meantime, one of my favorite self-published authors is here!

He has lots of great things to say, but the one thing that caught my attention…

What’s the most difficult thing about being a writer? The most exciting thing?

The most exciting thing is creating words on a page that make people laugh, or make them cry, or open their minds or make them totally conceive of a world you created, and they go, hand in hand, your willing accomplice, into it with you. Playing them like a piano, knowing: get ready, get ready, here it comes, BOOM – they get to the sad part and they have tears streaming down their face, and then you insert a line and they are laughing through the tears. That is awesome. It’s a super power only writers possess. The worst thing? When it doesn’t work.

It takes me back to the early days of my first published book. A reader walked up to me and said, “WOW! Your book is real emotional. One minute I was laughing, next, I would cry, and in the next moment I was so angry I could reach right through the pages and rip out someone’s lungs.”

That’s when I knew I was successful…

Take a look, and get to know an author, who is surely to become a hit in the world of writing real soon.

What Do YOU Think?

So, Authors of, campbellsworld, what do you think? Want to know what I think? Well, I’m going to say…

I think it depends upon what you mean by “Help” If you mean, a beta reader, then yes, I’ll help. If you mean someone to critique, yes, I’ll help, maybe those are one and the same, not sure. I’ll say this, if you ask me my opinion, you’ll get it, straight up and no fluff.

You’ll never be a great writer without some spit and polish, and usually that means more spit than polish.

I will not, write someone’s work, meaning, I’m not going to redo half a book for someone. I had a friend who got mad, cause her editor would not rewrite half her book.

Well, hell! You want a ghost writer, then send your outline to me, and pay my fee, then we’ll talk, but you’re still gonna have to listen to what I say, so may as well take Dan’s advice, and “Get off your ass, and do it yourself.”

So, what say you? Let’s have an “Authorey conversation.”

A Fantasy Tip From History: Doo-Dooing The King

While I do not believe I’d like to have someone in bathroom with me to wipe my…! I do wish I had an assistant who could, help match all my clothes, fix my hair in braids, or some other style my fingers will no longer do, and help with things, that a regular house-keeper doesn’t do.

When I finally publish a book that hits the Million Dollar bestseller’s list, I’m gonna hire such. 🙂

Yes, I said when!

Thanks for posting this, and allowing it to be reblogged.
