About

I work in PR and as a byproduct get to do quite a bit of editing/writing at work - but it's all nonfiction  articles/speeches/press releases and unfortunately my name doesn't get to byline the articles I write (oh, the joys of ghostwriting!). I absolutely adore my job - but I miss creative writing! Creative nonfiction was my forte back in my not-so-ancient college days, but it's not what I like to read. I'm using Wattpad to practice my fiction skillz. Which admittedly are lacking.

The way I write is that I publish first...edit later. Easier to get the plot out there and then go back and refine the language and other minutia.

Favorite genres are epic fantasy, PNR, and urban fantasy, but I'll read anything. I'm in search of my reader soulmate who is as diehard a fan of Ilona Andrews as I am.

Sally,
Could you please contact me about how to get an agent? I really want to be a published writer but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to go about getting an agent. I was hoping you could give me some advice seeing as how you recently had one. That being said- I commend you for self-publishing. Keeping Paladin the way we all love it (your way) was the best option. Thank you!

I have to agree with the thousands of people who said to not rewrite; its awesome how it is and gets straight to the action. In other words, I'm congratulating you on going with the self publication route. Good luck, and well wishes. 
BTW: Paladín was awesome. I could not put down!

Hey Sally, I tried sending you a message to your inbox.... but this whole wattpad layout is new, so I'm not entirely sure it sent. Either way, I wanted to write on here to congratulate you on your decision to self publish! Hope it all goes well!
SallySlater commented on Paladin - Just an update


That isn’t to say the story you’ve read is perfect. Paladin is still flawed, has issues, and needs to be re-written. I’m working on that now—but I’m taking a far less dramatic approach. Whe...

I will definitely be keeping you updated!
