A First Sale May 1, 2011

One of my first sales was to a children’s magazine that, at the time, I thought a bit obscure. The magazine cover showed a young boy I had never heard of. I wondered, Who is this kid and who is his audience? Will anyone read my story?  I wanted to write books, not magazine stories, and I wondered if writing for magazines could get me any closer to my goal. Would anyone even notice my writing?

Four books and 100+ magazine articles and stories later, I recently looked over my box of clips (a good idea for any writer looking for a pick-me-up). I found that old story, still in the original magazine. And this time I recognized the boy on the cover. It was Nick Jonas.

As in the Jonas Brothers.

He’d spent time in the same magazine as I did, and look how far he went!
