TERA LYNN CHILDS talks about How to Have a Savvy Writing Career

Building a writing career takes more than writing a book and sending it out into the world. As modern authors, we have to juggle the creative side with the business and make important (and sometimes hard) decisions along the way. Since starting to write in 2003, signing with her agent in 2005, and selling her first book in 2006, TERA LYNN CHILDS has sold eight hardcover books to two New York publishers, weathered an editor’s move followed immediately by an agent’s move, and countless rejections and opportunities that may or may not have been worth taking. She will talk about how to make choices and allocate resources that will lead to a growing, long-term career, instead of a disappointing flash in the pan.

TERA LYNN CHILDS is the RITA award-winning author of the mythology-based young adult novels Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp (both from Dutton Children’s Books), the mermaid novels Forgive My Fins, Fins Are Forever, and Just For Fins (from Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins) and a new trilogy about monster-hunting descendants of Medusa, starting with Sweet Venom and Sweet Shadows, with Sweet Legacy coming this fall (also from Katherine Tegen Books). She has also self-published two fun chick lit romances, Eye Candy and Straight Stalk. Find out more at teralynnchilds.com.
