A Perfect Day!!

Disclaimer: This is just an imaginary story. Has nothing to do with anyone or anything. If finds similarity just that we all go through same situations at times..!!!!
Haven’t you ever wanted to have a Day filled with happiness? A day when you think about has only laughs and smiles. Here is one such day anyone loves to have.

Dancing in rain
The Story!

It’s our fifth wedding anniversary. Five years is just a start, but of course it is long beautiful 5*365 mornings with a wonderful person next you to share a smile, Of course some fights as well.
I moved towards his side of the bed to give him a warm hug and special anniversary kiss. But I opened my eyes without seeing him next to me.
Where is he gone this early? It’s always me who wake up first.
I could hear the droplets of rain falling in the ground. A beautiful rainy morning! Oh, God! Thank you for such a start.
But my husband is missing! Where is he? At this time he only tries to cuddle up under a blanket. I wonder where he is gone.
He might have got an urgent call from office.
I couldn’t resist opening my balcony door and enjoy the shining rainy day. I love this, this is my favorite. Rain falls down from the clouds above splashing in puddles.
Let me go ahead and drench in rain.
Let the rain kiss me
Let the rain beat upon my heart with its silver droplets
Let the rain sing a beautiful song for me.
How blissful you are!
I just love the rain and all the rainy days.
I closed my eyes to enjoy the music of rain. I thought I will be dancing in the rain with the most wonderful person in my life. It might be just a dream since he might not agree to it. J
I turn back to see my husband standing with two coffee cups in his hand. I couldn’t believe my eyes. In these five years he has never made me coffee or tea or not even an omelet at any point of time. Even when I were badly sick and lying in the bed. With an amazed face and spangled eyes I took one cup of coffee from him with a thank you in his cheeks.
Sipping hot coffee, we sat together enjoying the morning. We could discuss about anything under the sky or beyond. It is such a wonderful start of a day.
I kept the coffee cup down and run crazily in the rain, holding his hands. It might be nice if someone holds an umbrella for you when it rains. But it is the most wonderful when someone holds your hand and runs in the rain.
                I lean my head on his shoulders and hold him close to me.
A light shower surprised me. I couldn’t ask for a better start for my special day. It looks like a scene from some romantic movie which I watched earlier. But it is real! I have gone through a wonderful experience in my life. All these years I have got many costly gifts for my birthdays and anniversaries. But this one cannot be prize tagged.
It’s such a perfect day! Rain makes everything beautiful!!!

How to Recover from a Launch Disaster

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

How do you recover from a book launch disaster? Over 4,500 new books are published every day.  As someone who has been in publishing for years, I understand without the author's active role, little happens.

In recent years, I've watched authors launch books and participate in their launch teams. I've gotten advance reading copies of the book, read it then posted my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble. I've taken online courses on launching books. As an acquisitions editor for a New York publisher, Morgan James Publishing, I've watched many other authors launch their books. Like many things in publishing, I've found not everything will go according to your plans.

While I've written more than 60 books, I haven't published a new book in several years. My newest book, 10 Publishing Myths released to the bookstores on December 17th. Last year, I asked New York Times bestselling author, Jerry B. Jenkins …

Face the Silence With Action

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

Are you getting silence as you reach out to literary agents or editors during the holidays? Yes you might get a little response such as holiday greetings or Merry Christmas. From my years in this business, there is often a shift in the community from right before Thanksgiving until right after New Year's Day. People put off sending manuscripts. If they have a book contract from a publisher, they often delay to sign it until after January 2nd and any number of other decisions of this nature.

My authors are Morgan James are still active and corresponding with me but little is finalizing and moving forward—so mostly silent in some ways. How do you handle this silence? Does it stop your writing and your work in the community? In this article, I want to give you some pro-active idea of what you can do to be productive and face the silence with action.

1. Read books on the craft of writing. As you read these books, use a highlighter and post-it notes to take ac…

Get A Realistic Publishing Perspective

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

I've spoken with many authors about their plans and ambitions for their published book. Authors pour a lot of energy into writing their manuscript and creating a book proposal or careful pitch of their book for editors or literary agents. These authors make statements to me like:

“My book will be a bestseller.”

“My book will make a lot of money.” 

“My book will sell ____ copies.”

Also over many years in publishing, I've had publishers tell me that my book would be in airport bookstores and they had plans to market and sell many copies of the book. Conventional wisdom in publishing says the larger the advance, the greater the publisher investment and the greater they will have to invest in marketing to get this investment back and more. I've been blessed to get a couple of six-figure advances—but I have lengthy stories (not good ones) about how each of these books turned out in the market.

From my years in publishing, I know and understan…
