A fictional family tree sketched on a piece of paper and endless hours typing away resulted in ‘My Big Greek Family’. Connecting with readers and getting feedback are the most fulfilling aspects of creating a story; as a writer you create to share. You can find out more about the book and dip into some authentic Greek family recipes on my author website:
There were some memorable moments in researching and writing the book, which I was kindly invited to share on bookfanmary’s blog: http://bookfanmary.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/guest-post-and-a-giveaway-maria-constantine/
‘My Big Greek Family’ has taught me that writing a book is only part of the job of a writer. I have learnt to wear different hats as an author entrepreneur, and some have taken longer to sit properly. One piece of advice I hold onto is to be me, be real and be authentic, and if I make mistakes as I go along, then it is all part of the learning experience. When I typed ‘The End’ I now know it was only the beginning.
