So some writers are lucky enough to have people that have been with them since day one. Before the book even came out these folks joined their loops and supported them, beta read and talked them through the bad times and have pretty much been front and center in their cheering section.
I have a few of those folks and I adore them all (in addition to folks who’ve discovered me later, I love y’all too!)
Yesterday, I spent several hours laughing over lunch with one of those folks, a true friend to me and a lot of authors – Di Nogueras. What can I say about Di other than that she’s just as wonderful in person as she is online? She’s funny and sweet and smart and she knows her books. She’s a hoot and her friend Elaine was wonderful as well and I’m thrilled to have met her, too.
