Meet Chelsea—My new assistant!
Chelsea here. I’m so excited to be working with the lovely and talented Emily March! A little about me…I have a background in marketing and graphic design, I’m an avid reader and—I’m going to write a book one day. I came to Emily offering (ok, begging) to do some marketing & social media work for her with the hope that eventually I would get to learn more about the publishing process and how a book goes from an idea to something you buy in a bookstore. Instead, Emily immediately took me under her wing—asking me about my writing, sharing her experiences with me, and even offering to read some of my work if I can get her 25 finished pages. (Emily, I’m going to need the next month off. Just kidding.)
Now for a confession: I had not read Emily’s books—or any romance novel for that matter—when I approached her about the job (gasp). I had always been a bit of a romance skeptic, but I resolved to put my preconceived notions aside and read the Eternity Springs series. I finished all six books in one week!
I discovered that Emily writes not just heartwarming stories, but characters that you come to love as you read about their individual stories and struggles. (Celeste Blessing, you’re my hero!) The other day I got to attend the Buns & Roses Romance Tea for Literacy with Emily and 24 other host authors from all different kinds of romance sub-genres. It was amazing to watch Emily interact with her fans and hear them talk about how much enjoyment they get from reading her books.
I’ve already learned so much from working with Emily, and I hope to continue learning from her as I help to promote the next book in the Eternity Springs Series, MIRACLE ROAD. I was lucky enough to get to read an advance copy of it and just between you and me, it is her best yet!
Make sure to connect with Emily on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ as I help post exciting book news and info on her upcoming MIRACLE ROAD Road Trip in November. I can’t wait to spend some time with all of you in Eternity Springs!
