My friends are writers. Good writers. Award winning writers. My workshop friends have hundreds of published books, foreign country versions, movie rights sold. Bestsellers.

It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything […]

Edit Content This is a read through for continuity, checking names, times, locations, plot holes, etc. It’s great if you can get a peer to edit at this time. Even better if you can hire an […]
It’s all the rage. The author brand. Go to any conference, any convention, and you’ll hear about brands. There’s a good reason for that. Your brand is essential to your success.
