How to Survive in Publishing

This is from Jackie Ashenden’s tweet that’s 100% spot on. This is exactly what I needed today after almost giving up on my holiday story again last night. I especially love the one about failure being not just a possibility, but a certainty.

#AmWriting, Yes I Am

Somewhere on this blog is a private page that has 32 covers I’ve purchased hoarded since I began publishing—and that number doesn’t include the covers I’ve made. Yes, you read it right.
