Any Published Young Authors?
If any of you blog fans have published a book (on Amazon or Lulu.com), email me the link and let me take a look. If it’s been formatted professionally, I’d love to give young authors a “shout out.” Sara Miller did this with her book, and it was fun to learn about her and herContinue reading “Any Published Young Authors?”
Got a Post Idea?
Through the years, a few up-and-coming young writers have contributed their own post ideas to Andi’s Blog. For example, many of the character quizzes I have recycled (and updated) came from Sadie S., who years ago asked, “Mrs. M., I would love to think up some character quizzes. May I?” Absolutely! Ellen S. contributed atContinue reading “Got a Post Idea?”

Proof Reading Blunders
For more Let’s Write posts, go to Andi’s Attic >> I thought it might be fun to post this as we get ready to head into the Annual Contest later this year. I am an author, an editor, and a proofreader.

Well, it happened. I knew it might. My editor at Kregel emailed and is hinting that they would like me to finish the Goldtown Adventures middle-grade series with books 5 and 6 (so every series has the same number of books). I have agreed to think about at least one book. And . . .Continue reading “Brainstorming, Anyone?”
2023 Story-Writing Contest Book
I’m excited to start gearing up for the annual story-writing contest. It’s a lot of work, and the first step is creating the cover and title for the 12-story collection. I don’t usually do this myself. I prefer that you young writers have a chance to choose a title and cover. This is how itContinue reading “2023 Story-Writing Contest Book”
2- Make It Look Good!
See more writing tips in Andi’s Attic >> It’s been a long, long time since I started this series on self-publishing your own book.

Vote for Contests
I have had requests about when I am going to host the Circle C Annual Writing Contest again. Well, since I’ve been putting on 4 seasonal contests a year, there is no way I can also put on the big ANNUAL contest. However, I’ve had a nice, long break and I’m willing to switch backContinue reading “Vote for Contests”
