Great post, Becky. Beautifully written (you are a talented writer in your own right) and excellent advice. Most authors learn as they go and I'm so happy that Whitney has connected with you early enough to take advantage of what you have to offer. It was too late for me to do it "right" with the release of the 2nd edition of Full Steam Ahead last spring. But I'm lucky that I did connect with you several weeks before the launch and that I was able to do a partial campaign. Your advice and support were invaluable. I remember getting a tweet from Whitney "Your campaign is so clever," however by that point, it wasn't "my campaign" anymore because it had taken on a life of it's own. It took two blog posts to share my experience, what I had learned and express my gratitude. One of the most amazing lessons was taking your advice and asking for help. (The Real Success Was Something I Hadn't Anticipated ) Even today I am filled with gratitude as I recall how many people came forward to offer support in their own unique, and sometimes creative, way. I am smarter now and for my next book, I will call you as I begin to write. Love your analogy about planting the bulbs in the fall. And please do call on me to help out - it would be a pleasure!
