Publishing Wisdom From a Whippersnapper :-)

Just in case you’ve never heard the word “whippersnapper”, it means “a young and inexperienced person considered to be presumptuous or overconfident”.

I found one through Twitter—Jolina Petersheim.

Her status as a whippersnapper is her own judgement

Based on her personal definition, we have a few more of them in our Author Interviews and some aren’t all that young :-)

I’ve tried to be a whippersnapper many times in my life—almost got to be good at it—but I was destined to become a maverick.

Perhaps, some day, over a cup of tea, I’ll explain the fine distinctions between the two epithets

I found a video by Jolina called Publishing Wisdom From a Whippersnapper— her first novel is due out in 2013.

As you watch Jolina and her baby, listen carefully

This whippersnapper does have some words of wisdom:

    You might well be interested in Cigdem y Mirol’s bookperformance work which I had the chance to listen to at an international conference on authorship. Her work reinvents love between the reader and the author and intelligently manifests bookperformance for today’s reception. More info may be found in her website.
