MORE Wilde's Fire Contest Success Stories!


I am thrilled to welcome two more of my friends to Curiosity Quills Press as Wilde's Fire Contest success stories! I never imagined that my little contest would have such a positive impact on my blogging friends and I couldn't be happier about it. I look forward to walking this road with you!

Jamie Ayers
Jamie Ayers, an awesome blogger that I've had the pleasure of knowing online for a while, posted her official success announcement here. It is a must read. She talks about her publishing journey, which like mine, was long. :) Although those of you without success stories yet may feel a little bittersweet about other people's success stories (I know I did), this one will remind you that success rarely comes overnight. As Jamie says, "Trust your gut! And believe every rejection in life just means God has something better planned for you down the road." 

Jamie's paranormal YA, 18 Things, reportedly reduced Krystal Wade to tears on several occasions, which is a very good thing.

Victoria Smith
Victoria Smith, also known as the "Twenty Something Fiction Writer" posted about her success here, and she includes a V-log to prove that us writers are more than stationary head shots. Victoria is one of the famed NA Alley sisters, contributors to an amazing blog that has been working hard to advance the New Adult genre. And now Victoria has the pleasure of calling herself a New Adult author. It seems like there are more of us every day!

Victoria's NA sci-fi romance, Crimson Hunt, was chosen in part for it's stellar voice. I can't wait to read the whole thing!

Congratulations again! And welcome to Curiosity Quills. I'm so happy to be a part of our ever-expanding network of amazing authors.
