I am very grateful to Tom Blubaugh and Gina Burgess of Authors Community for their help with the fantasy novel, The Seventh Tree, which I have been writing, on and off, for about twenty years. I had not written a novel before, so I did not know how to write it.
Tom has introduced me to the world of marketing, an area that I had not considered before, target audiences, a target book, influencers, landing pages, etc. He suggested that I write interviews with my main characters, two of which I have completed, and he is helping me to develop a website to provide news of the novel and the processes of writing it.
Gina has read the two-character interviews that I have written, making insightful, helpful and brilliant suggestions, to improve them. As these interviews will form a part of the body of the novel, she has improved The Seventh Tree significantly already. Once I have completed ten chapters, she will read, analyse and edit them.
