Guest Post and Giveaway: Back to us by Teresa Roman

A happy Monday to you, reader! ❤ We have here today Ms. Teresa Roman to share her experiences writing her latest book titled, “Back to us” as well us several writing
tips for aspiring authors out there! ❤

My experiences writing Back To Us and writing tips:

The main characters of my book were in my head for a while before I began writing my book. Once I had them squared away I decided to set my story in New York City, which is where I graduated from college.

The apartment my main character Jessica shares with her brother is pretty much the exact same one that I shared with my own brother during that time of my life. Once I had the characters and setting down the story just flowed from there. I usually try and just write and get my whole story out before going back to edit. I went through my book to edit it probably around five times after I finished the writing part. After that I had two people beta read my book for me. They loved it, so that encouraged me to move forward. I hired an editor and then a book cover designer.

Shortly after that I read about the Kindle Scout program. I submitted my book and a month later got the good news that my book was selected for publication.
I was ecstatic.

Jho-sigstyledivThe biggest writing tip I can give anyone is to hire an editor and know that when it comes to editors you get what you pay for. If you’re quoted a low price that often means a sub-par job. Be careful when selecting your beta readers. A good beta reader will be honest and constructive. They will give you concrete examples of how to improve your work. The other tip I have is one that every writer has heard before but it’s so true that it bears being repeated over and over again: keep reading and keep writing.
