Quest to Authordom Revival

Last year, I came up with a plan to feature authors throughout the year as they told their origin stories — how they became published, essentially. Like many things in life, it didn’t go quite as planned though I was able to feature some great people near the beginning of its creation. It’s a blog feature that I think is […]

Donna Alward’s Quest to Authordom

April 4 sees the release of my… 47th title since 2006. It seems really surreal that in just over ten years I’ve written that many books, and that there are more on the release schedule for this year. This newest release is the third book in my Darling, VT trilogy from St. Martin’s Press. I loved writing this new series. […]

I finished my first non-fanfiction book in 2008. It was about […]

S. Usher Evans’ Quest to Authordom!

In May 2013, I broke up with the guy I’d thought I was going to marry. After nearly seven years of waiting, I realized (finally) that he wasn’t interested, so I told him we should cut our losses and move on. I start with this major life event in my “writing origin story” because it was the catalyst that changed […]

The Quest to Authordom Feature

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. For me, it’s been a bit stressful with NaNoWriMo almost over and being super behind and I started thinking about all things I don’t know about being a writer in the publishing world, whether it’s the “traditional” route or self-published. Which means that I’m definitely not the only one thinking about […]
