From Mike Dellosso’s blog . . .
John Donne wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself.”
That’s true even of writers. I need help and support, wisdom, suggestions. I need prayer and encouragement and, occasionally, rebuking. I fully realize that if I’m going to succeed at this writing thing I’m not going to do it alone. The road is too rough and sometimes the walking too lonely.
That’s why I started The Darlington Society. The Society is a group of volunteers who agree to support me in my writing in a variety of ways. Those ways include promoting via social networks, book reviews, word-of-mouth marketing, but also encouragement and prayer and yes, even correction. I need that too.
In return, the members of the Society receive an advanced reader’s copy of my next novel (A Thousand Sleepless Nights under my pen name Michael King), special deals on my books, first dibs on upcoming news and events, and an insider’s look at the whole writing and publishing process.
Will you please consider joining the Society? I’m only taking 30 members this time around and TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO THROW YOUR HAT IN THE MIX. Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered. The Society members will be announced on Friday.
For all the information about the Society, go to the official Darlington Society page and read over it.
I look forward to getting to know some of you better!
