My Memories Are Selling! (And Yours Will, Too!) By Shellie Rushing Tomlinson

Only a fraction of unknown authors will be published this year. And memoirs–forget it! Unless they come from celebrities or authors with instant name recognition, a traditional publisher won’t pause before replying with a standard rejection slip. So, why is this unknown author smiling? Because I’ve done a football end-run around the big wigs, and […]

BUCKING THE ADVICE OF OTHERS TO SEE “WRITER” ON MY W-4 by Tracy Powell

Pursuing one’s proclivity early in life is an important career move, particularly in the word industry. Here’s the story of a kid who bucked the advice of family and high school teachers, all who encouraged putting pen to paper, to strive for the big bucks a business degree offered.
