K is for: keeping faith

Cynthia Leitich Smith did a great interview of Beth Revis in honor of A Million Suns' debut last week. This book marks the sequel to Across the Universe, which launched Revis from obscure-writerdom into New York Times bestseller-dom.

Accompanying the interview is this great vlog Revis did for WriteOnCon last year (which is an online writer's conference that is totally awesome) which I somehow missed. But I'm sharing it with you now because Revis's journey is pretty typical.

If you have six minutes, watch, learn and be scared  enjoy!

Melodie, I watched the video last year after WriteOnCon, and, yes, it scared me. :)

I would think A Million Suns has been out longer than a week but I could be wrong. (I'd say at least a month.)

I do remember WriteOnCon. That was very intense and I will thankfully not need to repeat the stress this year. I do hope to stop in for the workshops though.

Thanks for sharing. It's good to be reminded that it's more work than magic.

I enjoy Beth's blog. The best thing about her is that her success didn't change her. :-)

It's funny how encouraging failure can be. Thanks for posting!
