Ask the Author

One of my greatest joys as a writer, editor, and ghostwriter is helping aspiring writers tell their stories.  I get so many questions from people, in fact, that I’m starting a new feature on my social networking and web sites called “Ask the Author.” This is the perfect opportunity for you to ask questions about agents, publishers, editors, proposals, writing for magazines, or the writing life in general. Shoot, I’ll […]
