Get Published has been Shortlisted for a Parsec (2011)

Thank you all for listening and your  involvement in a show that means a […]

I also talk about how writers can go about learning some of the necessary information about their genres of choice: things like who publishes in the genre and how long the books typically are. I hope you enjoy the show. Show Notes 00:00 — Opening – Get Published […]
