By Chastity Bush

Hello, everyone, and thanks for having me here today!
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Chastity Bush, (yes, that’s my real name) and I’m the author of several romance novels. I’m a wife, and the mother of two great girls.
Thanks to my husband, I discovered that writing is my true passion, and I currently have several projects in the works, including a sequel to my hot western romance, Tumbleweeds.
I received so many great reviews, and so many wonderful reader comments for Tumbleweeds that I’ll never be able to thank all of you readers enough.
I get asked all of the time if I have any tips or advice for aspiring/new authors, and I certainly do!
First of all, don’t write what’s hot at the moment. Write what you love, because what’s hot today, most likely won’t be hot tomorrow.
Don’t emulate someone else’s work. You have an imagination, use it!
Always research who you’re submitting your work to. Believe it or not, not all publishers, agents, and editors have your best interest at heart.
And last but certainly not least, don’t write for money. If you start writing with the idea of becoming rich and famous, you’re going to be horribly disappointed. Write because you love it. Write because others love books. Write because it’s your passion.
I sincerely hope this helps any of you who have question. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to check out my rambling. Also, I have a brand new blog/official website you can check out. There you’ll find a lot of reviews from some awesome authors, a page dedicated to my books, and reviews, and much, much, more!

I hope to hear from some of you soon!

Have a fantastic day!
Chastity Bush

Rich and famous - oh yes, I can feel it in reach - NOT! Some good advice there Chastity!! I think if people really want to write, they just have to keep trying and doing it and hoping. But send the stories in - they won't get accepted sitting on your hard drive.

Don't we all dream of being rich and famous? :)
You're right. You have to try, but not be expectant of having anything handed to you. I write because I love it. Others should, too. :)
