I'll share a little secret with you. LitPig has a bit of a crush on our Wendy (see photo right) and fondly remembers when he interviewed her about launching her debut collection Room in Your Heart (read the interview post here).
Shyly, he plucked up the courage today to ask how she was planning to celebrate 100 sales. This is what she told him:
I've been asked a lot about how I've celebrated this milestone and my answer has got to be "I haven't". There have been many lovely milestones along my People's Friend journey - first sale, first article, first serial and of course the publication of Room in Your Heart that I couldn't celebrate them all. What I actually did after that 100th sale was walk the dog... then write another story!
There's a lesson for all wannabe writers. Celebrate by writing something new.
(I don't believe a word of it. I've seen her polish off giant slabs of cake without any excuse for a celebration!)
Check out Wendy's two collections of short stories:
Amazon as ebooks or paperbacks. Both are cracking good reads.
