Best-selling author Lisa Unger admits that even though she always wanted to be a writer, it took her 10 years to finish her first book. Perseverance was the theme of Unger’s talk at Working Women of Tampa Bay’s Jan. 11 luncheon.
Unger had success with her first two books, but her third book didn’t match the style of the first two. It was rejected by her publisher, but was picked up by another. That third book, “Beautiful Lies,” became her first New York Times best-seller.
Her lesson? Keep your eye on your work and the rest will follow.
