Karen M. Rider presents Every Writer’s Secret Hope posted at Karen M. Rider, saying, “Whenever a writer puts her or his work out into the world, there is a secret hope that the story or book might be next on the hot list. Along the journey to such acclaim, writers wrote hard, marketed harder and formed alliances that helped to get their book or story ‘out there.’ The Next Big Thing Blog Hop bands together writers from across the globe in an effort to help readers discover new authors and their published books or a work-in-progress.
Hop on board! You might even discover a book that ends up being The Next Big Thing.”
