AHA means AUTHORS HELPING AUTHORS:
Being an author is much like being a starving artist when you first get started and we are trying to build a community of authors that can offer advice and tips about resources to help each other. The focus is on providing support, information and resources to authors so they don’t have to learn the hard way. The hope is that authors will pitch in by sharing helpful tips and links for others and thus the community will grow.
We have also set up a Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/ahapage be sure to LIKE the page and let all of your friends know about it – remember friends don’t let friends struggle through the process of being a successful author alone!
THE LIGHT BULB THAT STARTED THIS:
AHA was started by two editing professionals and published authors, Debra L Hartmann and Roger Gerald Scott. Having found a common bond some time ago in helping each other by sharing tips and advise purely by a chance meeting on twitter, they also shared a sense of sorrow and wishes for change in the author’s world as it is today.
The concept of AHA is based on being able to compile resources, advise and helpful tips in one place so they are easier to find, pulled from all of the wonderful authors that have already found a way through the mire of becoming an author and encouraging a helpful and user-friendly environment for everyone to find what they need in order to do better in their craft.
HOW TO GET AROUND:
There is a search box for you to type in keywords and get related content from this site or you can look through the menus, top and right of the posts. If you don’t see something you are looking for, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do to put any relevent and not as yet posted content up for you.
