Young Whippersnapper!

I have to pay my respects to the young whippersnapper who became my crit partner four years ago. Jessica Nelson, a truly gifted writer, is about to introduce her first novel, LOVE ON THE RANGE, a Love Inspired Romance. The story will be out April 3, 2012 and is a delightful read.

It's a long road to publication, but Jessica was determined. Though just a whippersnapper compared to a lot of folks writing, her perseverance left no doubt she would be pubbed.

Whether you are fifteen or fifty, if you've been blessed with the talent to write, get off your duff and start putting words to paper. Shut off the tv, or leave it on for comfort, if you're a noise-infused writer, whatever it takes. But write!

Never give up your dream, don't even postpose it, you might be the next Jessica Nelson with a new book to celebrate.


  1. If she's a young whippersnapper, how long can it be? ;) (Just kidding!)Excited for her - and taking my marching orders, Ms. Glaz!

  2. I met Jessica a few years ago and knew she had talent. I am so excited for her book and for her!!
    And thanks for the encouragement--much needed right now.

  3. Congrats, Jessica! Great post to give everyone a push to keep typing those words! Thanks, Linda

  4. Awww, thanks guys! I'm so blessed to have Linda as a critter. Thank you for the shout-out Linda!
