I contacted traditional publishers and looked into the pros and cons of self-publishing and honestly wasn’t overly comfortable with either of these options. I felt like a little fish in a big sea where danger lurked. Then, thanks to social media, a friend posted her picture which very proudly displayed a copy of her newly released book! I was so happy for her and congratulations were in order! She spoke of her relationship with LWL PUBLISHING HOUSE and a woman named Anita Sechesky, who she highly praised. “Please introduce me,” I asked!
From our very first phone conversation, I felt Anita was an honest, hard-working individual who was willing to assist me, an average grandma, to create “my masterpiece.” She did not require previous publication or writing experience. She was willing to review my material and help me accomplish my goal. She divulged to me that she had not yet published children’s books, but it was certainly a priority in the near future.
So there I was, wanting to publish children’s books and on the other end of the phone, a publisher wishing to expand to incorporate children’s publications! It always amazes me how life sometimes falls into place, at the right time and for the right reasons. When this happens, I trust it is simply “meant to be” and I just run with it. Within a few months, LWL KIDz was born and I’m honored to be their first children’s author!
Anita is caring, compassionate, and has a genuine love of people. Her smile brightens a room and her “Joie de vie” is infectious! Thank you, Anita, for accepting me as one of your authors! Your encouraging words aid in making us the best we can possibly be, not only as authors, but more importantly, as people.
