Starting tomorrow, we'll have daily postings from the one and only W. Terry Whalin. Let me tell you folks, if you've never read Terry's Blog for writers you are missing out on some of the BEST free advice available in the blogosphere today! Plus, Terry's book: BOOK PROPOSALS THAT SELL is a MUST HAVE for anyone in the industry. I sell it on my book table.
Join me in welcoming Terry as our second guest in the God Allows U-Turns 2006 Guest Blogger Series. (Steve Laube, Literary Agent, was our first official guest - you'll want to scroll down to read his archived pithy postings!)
W. Terry Whalin knows and understands both sides of the editorial desk--as an editor and a writer. He is the Fiction Acquisitions Editor at Howard Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, based in West Monroe, Louisiana. He worked as a magazine editor for Decision and In Other Words magazines. His magazine articles have appeared in more than 50 Christian and general market publications plus he’s written more than 60 books. His personal site is located at: http://www.terrywhalin.com/.
A journalism graduate from Indiana University, Terry writes a wide spectrum of subjects and topics for the magazine and book marketplace--from children to teen to adult. His latest books include Book Proposals That $ell, 21 Secrets To Speed Your Success (Write Now Publications) and Running On Ice by Vonetta Flowers with Whalin (New Hope Publishers). He is board member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (the leading nonfiction writers group in the nation) and an associate member of the Evangelical Press Association. Also Terry is the creator for a popular site for writers called Right-Writing.com. Terry blogs about his life as a writer and editor at The Writing Life or http://www.thewritinglife.ws/ . Terry and his wife, Christine, live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Come back tomorrow to hear from W. Terry Whalin! Have a blessed Sunday.
And that's what's on my mind today.
