    • Hi Tracey, I am a blind author with a middle school/young adult novel called The Heart of Applebutter Hill. I'm writing to ask if you would kindly vote for my book cover in the book cover comp? I've made it into the final round! I am using this opportunity to raise awareness about blindness, accessibility, guide dogs and other disabilities. This novel is educator-recommended for its diversity, anti-bullying and inclusion themes. I would appreciate your help! :)

      • Writing should be something that you enjoy doing. Don't put unnecessary pressures on yourself like arbitrary deadlines. Work at your own pace and enjoy the creative process. Remember to take time for yourself - you will become a better writer as a result.

      • Literary success for me is having people enjoy reading my books. I love hearing from readers and how intense they feel about certain characters plus how engrossed they became with the books. That is true success!

      • Having a good cover and title are key elements in getting a reader to notice your book. It needs to say "pick me up and buy me". If the cover and title aren't interesting, readers will move on to the next in their search.

      • You need to make the characters feel real. If you don't believe in your content, neither will your readers. Add pieces of yourself into the writing - whether it's people or places or your favorite sandwich!

      • I have been writing for most of my life. I always loved to write growing up and had on my "bucket list" to write a mystery novel. For this mystery series, it was actually my father who inspired me to start it. He always encouraged me to reach for the stars and make my dreams come true!
