Pubbing 1.0 How I did it by Camy Tang

I’m on the Steeple Hill blog in an interview with advice for writers, especially those targeting Steeple Hill.

1. What’s your sale story? How did you end up selling to Steeple Hill?

I’ve been reading Steeple Hill books since the 1990s, so when I first started writing seriously, I targeted Steeple Hill as a publisher.

  1. Loved your interview! I am impressed how you listen to God and follow His leading, even to the point of laying down your writing. And now look! God's blessing on your obedience! Congratulations on your new release!

  2. Thanks, Sherrinda! Following God isn't easy, especially when it comes to my writing, but I feel very blessed by how things have turned out for me!

  3. Hi Camy,
    I laid down my writing for many, many years too out of obedience to the Lord. A couple of years ago, I finally felt his whisper of blessing to take up the pen again. As I look back on my long hiatus, I can see God's hand totally at work in my life, growing me and enriching me in so many ways. I'm glad to be writing again, but can appreciate the years of growth too.

  4. Jody, I totally feel the same way--God took me on a circuitous route but it was really very enriching for me emotionally and spiritually.

  5. Awesome interview Camy! I have book shelves full of Steeple Hill books (all my favorites that I haven't donated to my church). I wrote my first book with the full intentions to submit it to Steeple Hill.

  6. Thanks, Steena! You never know about submitting to Steeple Hill--I didn't think I'd be able to write for them b/c they didn't have the suspense line at the time I started writing, but look how things turned out!

  7. Camy, I enjoyed reading your interview. I especially enjoyed your frankness about the Lord's leading in your life.

    I wanted to be a writer from the early days of high school, but as you, I too, was turned away from that path.

    Then three years ago, I "accidentally" began writing again. Now I am consumed. I continue to trust the Lord each step of the way and ask Him to redirect me if this is not His path for me.

    Your blog is a great source of instruction and encouragement. Thank you for the sacrifice of time it costs you.
