Before anyone asks I have been working with, talking too and helping out Writers and Publishers for the last 5yrs While trying to write and publish my own work.. I have 2 stories up for consideration as we speak.... Mind you its not the New York Best Sellers List I will ever be on I know enough to give a half educated advice or at the very least point people in the right direction.
