Don’t ask, and I shall receive? And a new article series for my launch …

My book S.A.S.S. The Great Call of China is coming out in 10 days …  And recently, a fellow writer friend of mine decided to celebrate!  Her name is Tara Lazar and she posted this on The Blue Boards.

I cried.

That post has led to many great things, including a wonderful free critique opportunity offered by Roxanne Werner. Get thee to Roxanne’s website immediately.

I’m always telling others, “Ask, and ye shall receive….”   Meaning, ask me and I’ll do my best to help.  Because I really do love helping you  if I can. But now… I realize the opposite of one of my favorite statements is also true. “Don’t ask, and I shall receive.”  Ha!

I am amazed by the children’s writing community. I love each and everyone one of you! And I am sooooo grateful and thankful for your support.

If you are also doing something to celebrate and you want me to stop by on your blog or website on release day and have Snoop conga-dance there for you, just email Snoop when your post is up SNOOP AT cynthealiu DOT Com.  Snoop will put you down for a tail-shakin’.

Finally, this wouldn’t be WRITING FOR CHILDREN AND TEENS, if I didn’t do something educational for everyone to celebrate S.A.S.S’s release. So look for another post today called BEHIND THE BOOK: WRITING FOR AN ESTABLISHED SERIES. (S.A.S.S. THE GREAT CALL OF CHINA).

Each day, from now until I run out of things to say about it, I will tell you how you can get started in writing your own book for an established series. Now go tell your friends and watch for my next post this afternoon …

Until then!


Cynthea (and Snoop!)

  1. Cynthea,

    I am here to revoke (if that is the right word) my past statements on Verla Kay. Finally got the hang of using it.

    Reading your book like mad and have sent a few manuscripts off. So thank you very much. If you don’t mind, I will keep in contact with any further advancements. One person on the message board did say it is possible to have an agent abroad. Do you agree?

    Talk to you.


    PS: I hope Snoop is better behaved than my cat. He keeps stomping on the keyboard and typing this is a nightmare!

  2. Yes, completely. It is possible to obtain an agent in the U.S. even if you do not live in the U.S.! In fact I know of a couple of authors who have U.S. agents.

    Hi to your cat!
