mentor

Discussion started on

Hi,

I'm new here.  I have published my first book, A Crack in the Sky a couple of years ago.  I am looking for a mentor before I start my
2nd book.  Is this the right place?  Can anyone help me?  Thanks so much.  V.

:welcome V. (I'm one of the other Vs around here  ;D Many people offer mentorships for pay. Two that I know of are:
https://mentorsforrent.wordpress.com/  and  http://www.authoraccelerator.com/ 
You can also google "book coach" There are many hits. As to how to choose one? I'd go for someone who writes in the same genre and has a good publication record. And offers what you need.
These can be pricey.
Other things to consider: take a class; join or form a critique group to swap stories.
Good luck in your search. This message board has forged many new writing friendships so you're in the right place.
