The publishing industry has changed, and the days of waiting for an established publisher to accept your manuscript are over. If you are considering publishing your own book, I urge you to learn more about what's involved before you embark on this adventure. ​​

Because I wanted to learn how to improve my own business, I enrolled in the Mastering Self-Publishing course offered by USA Today best-selling author Bethany Claire. I encourage you to learn from the best!

Writers Groups

If you're starting out, or even if you're not, you'll find that connecting with other writers is helpful and uplifting. Writing is a rather solitary endeavor, and having others who are walking the same path keeps you sane! My father always said he was happiest when he was learning, and whether you join a local group or a national one, or attend a conference, you will learn more about writing and the business. Below are a few groups I've found that have helped me; I know you can find others where you live!
