Scout Book: Question One for Kindle Press Author Mary Head
The first question for Kindle Press Author, Mary Head. She is the author of No Safe Place! Check it out today.
Here is that first question!
Does a big ego help or hurt writers?
I think it can do either, depending on how the author uses it (with great power comes great responsibility, etc). Confidence is always a huge help when writing and selling your own books, and I think that every writer has to believe in their own talent to really be successful, but when you start thinking you're better than everybody because of it, and when you look down on and refuse to help the newbies just starting out who need guidance and advice, that's when it becomes harmful.
Hannah Cole, a young graduate student attending George Washington University, and her father David Cole, a senior FBI agent, enjoy a happy life together in Arlington, Virginia. Due to the nature of his job, and having been a single father for most of Hannah's life, David has always been fiercely protective of his daughter and has taken great strides to keep her safe. But when Hannah is kidnapped from their home one night, their world is turned upside down.
With the force of the FBI behind him, including his best friend Juliet Grayson, trusted partner Chris Tyler, and rookie agent Eli Shaw, David rushes to find his daughter, while Hannah struggles to stay alive, both of them racing against a deadline that could mean the end of Hannah's life.
