Press Release Summary: Join veteran writer Misti Sandefur as she discuss the process of writing a fiction novel and seeking publication. Also enter to win a free mentoring session with her.
Press Release Body: Illinois, May 14, 2008 -- Excitement and fear were the two emotions veteran freelance writer Misti Sandefur felt as she sat down to pen her first novel 10 years ago. These are feelings many aspiring writers experience when they sit down to pen their first novel. But what if the aspiring writer had a mentor to turn to -- someone who has been in their shoes before, someone who could share their knowledge and offer encouragement so they don\'t find themselves faced with the same dilemma Sandefur once had, which was where to begin.
Misti Sandefur, now a published author and freelance writer with more than five years experience under her belt, will give one lucky writer the encouragement and advice he or she could use in order to pen his or her novel.
Beginning Sunday, May 25, 2008, Sandefur will offer free advice to several aspiring and veteran writers through a series of posts on her Life of a Writer blog. Through the \"Fiction Writing Tips\" series, Sandefur will discuss the process of writing a fiction novel and seeking publication. Some of her upcoming posts will also include free templates to assist the writer throughout the novel writing process.
Before the series begins, Sandefur will give writers the chance to enter a contest for a free mentoring session with her, which will continue until the winning writer has completed their novel. Writers will have four ways to enter the contest: Post an announcement about Sandefur\'s "Fiction Writing Tips" series on their blog, comment on any of the posts in the "Fiction Writing Tips" series, follow Sandefur on Twitter and/or subscribe to Life of a Writer via e-mail. If the writer performs all four tasks, then he or she will receive four entries into Sandefur's Mentoring Session Contest, increasing their chances of winning. Sandefur\'s free mentoring session will include honest (but gentle) criticism of the writer\'s book, query letter, synopsis, chapter-by-chapter outline and press release, encouragement, free editing, a list of possible places the writer can market their book, plus much more! The winner of the Mentoring Session Contest will be announced at the end of the \"Fiction Writing Tips\" series.
"I'm excited about being able to devote some of my free time to help a fellow writer out. I can hardly wait to get started. It brings me joy when I'm able to help someone else, and through this series of blog posts and the mentoring session, I'll be able to do just that," Sandefur said.
To find out more about the series and everything that will be included in the free mentoring session, as well as the complete details and rules about the contest, visit Sandefur\'s Life of a Writer blog (http://mistisandefur.blogspot.com/2008/05/news-get-ready-for-my-fiction-writing.html). Sandefur is available for interviews.
