Welcome to Aspire and Inspire with Elizabeth Sogard

Writers from around the world gather here to talk about the ups and downs that come with one of the craziest professions on earth.  Whether you are writing your first novel, working hard on edits, sending your work to a hundred agents, or already have a dozen books on the market, I hope you enjoy your time here.

Aspire and Inspire is for ALL writers.  I don’t care if you self published, sold to a big publisher or a small one, or are in the baby stages of writing your first book.  You are welcome here.  I am happy to help you in any way I can.

The following is a list of things you will find here:

Aspiring Author Interviews:  If you are an unpublished author, these posts are for you!  Know that you are not alone in your adventures.

From Liz’s desk:  If you are curious about what I am working on or how things are going, this is the place to go.

Just for fun: This can be anything and I do mean anything!  If it makes me laugh or go huh…you will find it there.

Hints, Tricks and Suggestions:  Learn from the mistakes of others, better your writing and improve your platform.  If it’s a hint, trick or suggestion you will find it there!

there is a rotating Monthly Feature:  Every month there is a new topic discussed.  (past monthly events have included Show Me Don’t Tell Me September, Outline with me October, NaNo November…)

Self Published Feature:  The decision to self publish causes a lot of arguments around the web, but not here!  This feature celebrates writers who do it all.

Traditional Author Feature: From query to yes!  How they found a publisher for their books!

There are some exciting things coming soon!

I’m bringing on a couple staffers to help me bring you a wider range of information: Need more information about music for your book trailers? Do you want a book cover for inspiration or an e-book, but don’t know where to start?  Want to learn more about website design?      Stay tuned!      Aspire and Inspire will have all that and more!
