The Shit No One Tells You About Writing
I've launched a podcast to help emerging writers navigate their way
through the publishing minefield.
Each week, I'll interview different authors, agents, editors,
publicists, booksellers, book bloggers, jacket designers,
creative writing instructors, reviewers and readers to give you
a behind-the-scenes look at the publishing industry.
If you have any questions, email me at
and I'll do my best to get them answered for you!
The first season's guests include:

and her agent Miriam Altshuler ( of DeFiore and Company)
