Today's post will have to be quick because I am still working on Guinevere's guest post for tomorrow and I need all my free time for that but I just quickly want to say how cool Mr. Lukeman is.
I'm sure you recall I discussed that seemingly strange email that I received from him yesterday. Well I was suspicious enough of it for whatever reason that I replied, asking if it was really him and what the catch was. This is how he responded:
Thank you for writing.
Yes, this is really me. There is no catch: I am just trying to do my best to give back to the writing community, in whatever way I can. I am always happy to give away whatever free material that I can, and to see authors prosper from it. Feel free to let others know.
Best of luck in your writing.
Sure, it's short and sweet but I checked out all the links he provided yesterday and they are legit, and in fact they are also some very useful resources for us writers and even though he has written several successful books on writing Mr. Lukeman is still giving some of these ones away for free.
I do find myself sometimes wondering how they find the time to do it. I mean people like Nathan Bransford, Kate Shafer Testerman, Kristin Nelson, and of course Noah Lukeman are some of the most successful agents in their industry, reading literally hundreds of thousands of query letters ever year, numerous manuscripts as well, and yet they still find the time to give freely of the knowledge they have worked so long and hard to earn.
I would just like to take the time to say than you.
Any thoughts? Please don't forget to come back tomorrow.
