Writing is not a solitary activity. Sure, I may shut myself in my home office for hours on end while the ideas flow and the words come spilling across the keyboard, but then someone else has to look at it. I have never produced a single viable product that didn't need another set of eyes on it, a helping hand, another opinion. I've also found that while I can visualize things in my mind, I have next to no ability to design or draw them for myself. Probably why I love photography so much. I can frame the shot, fix the lighting, see something that wasn't there before... but I'm not the one creating the design/art I capture. So, the phrase "it takes a village" comes to mind. I'm blessed to have a village of many, many people supporting me. But, in my current endeavor to become a published author, two people are at the forefront of helping me create the world of The Cube, my so-to-be debut novel (claiming it!).
They are so important to me, I wanted to create a page to highlight them, not only to appreciate them, but also to encourage any other aspiring (or current) writers out there to create and promote your own support team. It is so much easier to do this knowing I'm not doing this alone.
So, please meet my lovely collaborators... Laura Alsum and Adam Jentleson. Laura is helping me edit, the story and the text, and Adam is helping with graphics. They are both so talented in their own right. I'm very lucky they are taking the time to be a part of this journey with me.
