The fabulous Books and The City Team are the digital imprint of Simon & Schuster and as you are also probably aware being a #DigitalOriginals author can lead on to even bigger things. My current contract is for both ebooks and paperbacks which is simply beyond thrilling, I am invited to wonderful events, enjoy the support of a fabulous marketing team and have the benefit of seeing my work shine courtesy of the input from some of the best editors in the business. And guess what? This summer they're putting out another call for submissions and giving even more aspiring authors the opportunity to become published!

So, if you are an aspiring author with a great story to tell then you absolutely have to have July 15th 2016 engraved in every diary and on every calendar you own because this is one opportunity that is simply too good to miss and before you say it, I know you're nervous, I know you have no confidence and I know you don't think that a single thing you have written is good enough and how do I know this? Because in 2014 I was feeling exactly the same way but look at just what happened when I decided to go for it...
I wrote that post about a year ago now but I still feel that same buzz when I read it, an even bigger buzz in fact knowing everything that has happened since. I know it is a cliche and you will probably roll your eyes, but I wasted at least a couple of decades because I didn't think I could do it but in the end I did. Life really is too short to waste folks so if you have a story that you love then get it polished, get it primed, write that killer synopsis and become part of the #OneDay phenomenon.
Wishing you all the very best of luck!
