This is episode 50 of the Christian Publishing Show! And we have a special treat for you today. We’ve talked with a lot of bestselling authors on this show, but we’ve never talked much about what their first year is like. It is easy to get so focused on getting a book contract that you don’t realize what comes next. So that is what we are going to talk about today. 

Our guest today lives in Tennessee and is a writer of romantic comedy for HarperCollins Christian Publishing.

Melissa Ferguson, welcome to the Christian Publishing Show!

Let’s start a little before the story. How did you get your first contract?

What were some of the surprises?

What tips do you have for authors doing their first. 

How did it feel going through all this?

If you could go back to the beginning of the year, what could you do differently?

Where can people find out more about you?
