Guest Post: J Lou McCartney author of De Marco Empire

J Lou McCartney author of the book De Marco Empire, stopped by to share with us a piece she wrote for us.

From J Lou:

My first novel, De Marco Empire was an idea I had for thirteen years but it wasn't until I saw a personal development coach that I actually started writing it. The book was finished just over a year later. Writing the book was the easy part - I didn't have the first idea about the literary world and did as much research as possible. I tried a couple of agents and publishers with no success, I think you need a wonderful story to tell but you also need an element of luck. I found that luck with Pegasus Publishers who were willing to take a chance on an unknown author. To other aspiring authors out there I have to say that it is a very time consuming process so don't expect your book to be published overnight. With a lot of determination and self belief in your work anything is possible, so much so that I am now in the process of completing my third novel.

Thank you so much to J Lou for joining us today! If you'd like to pick up a copy of her book De Marco Empire, click the cover image below.
