One slightly used writer with only a few run of the mill issues (stalking not included) seeking a multi published, experienced writer to be her mentor. Must understand the ins and outs and complexities of the publishing business and occasional bouts of insecurity. Must be female. Must love romance. If you love pina coladas.... Oh wait. That's a really bad song from the seventies. (And it wouldn't hurt if you knew a few lyrics from the song, either)
This isn't for a critiquing situation, though an occasional read through would be helpful. This would be an open ended relationship consisting of several emails a week, a few stupid questions about the business, and encouragement. (A free arc tossed my way wouldn't be unappreciated, though not strictly necessary.)
I am multi-published in nonfiction, as well as having a host of magazine and website articles to my name. (Including Writer's Digest, Hoorah!) I am already agented and house trained.
In return, I promise to fawn accordingly, buy your books, and pay it forward to an even newer writer. Who will no doubt get an agent and publish before me, anyway.
Must have sense of humor. No intellectual snobs need apply.
