Chasing my crazy dream in the writing world…

Invited Guests November 6, 2013


One of the most important aspects of this blog to me is having writers share their stories about how they’ve navigated the world of publishing via guest posts.  Some have found success via the traditional route. Others have worked with a small press or self-published. No matter their path to publication, each writer has something important they can teach all of us aspiring writers.


Many thanks to these writers who have taken the time to personally share their thoughts and advice on the publishing world:
