Please join me in welcoming Niki Barrie as today’s guest author;
NAME: Nicoletta (Niki) Barrie
LIVE: Rochester, NY
STARTED WRITING: as a child…maybe 9 years old–poetry and essays
BOOKS I like writing:: I’ve written only one book — children’s fiction and I like it the best of anything I’ve written because I could be so creative. I’ve written a PDF that is a giveaway with my novel called “What You Need to Know before You Adopt a Dog,” available at http://dog-rescue-iowa.org/free-e-book-what-you-need-to-know-before-you-adopt-a-dog/,
and a chapter of nonfiction book Return to Big Grass, but otherwise my writing has all been for magazines.
THREE TIPS on Writing/Publishing:
1. Know your audience. This is true in the nonfiction market and though I’m new to fiction, I believe it is true there as well.
2. The publishing industry has been and continues to be changing constantly. Be prepared for it.
3. Know the English language (or whatever language you are writing in).
LAST BOOK I read: The Panther by Nelson DeMille; I love his books.. He’s an excellent writer, but this one wasn’t as interesting as the others (I’ve read them all).
