A WRITER'S LIFE FOR ME
presented by New York Times bestselling author ROBERT DUGONI How does one break into the business, and once in, what are the factors that can determine whether the writer continues with a publisher or is shown the door? Most writers are constantly rebuilding their careers, trying to determine the best avenue of publication for their work, perhaps switching genres, switching from legacy publishers to local publishers to e-books only. In his decade in the business, Bob has seen just about every side of the publishing industry and will share his experiences, advice, and thoughts on where publishing was, where it is now, where it is apt to go, and how a writer maintains his dignity, self-worth, and sanity.
