The Author Support Network on Facebook, with thousands of members, has become a go-to resource for authors at all stages in their careers. You can also join the Marie Force Author Services group to talk writing challenges and hear about new workshops and the Self-Pub loop on Yahoo for even more support.
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
~ Calvin Coolidge
