Call in to speak with the host
I am a born wordsmith. I started writing as soon as I could read. When I entered college at the George Washington University, I chose to major in Journalism because I bought into the belief that it was the only way I could get paid to write. The evidence seems to support that limiting belief, as most authors make little or no money as a direct result of producing a book, and MOST self-published authors lose money. This does NOT have to be true for you, as you will learn when we work together.
While in college, I had the good fortune to work at The Washington Post as a news aide, and I picked the brains of some of the best and the brightest writers in the world. Their dedication and skill inspired me, but reporting the news didn’t.
After graduation, I went to work for a world-class investigative journalist, David Wise who had over ten books (now fourteen) to his credit, including a #1 New York Times bestseller, and I helped him research and edit three books in my three year tenure at his service. I had a blast, and I got to see first-hand how a seasoned veteran author goes about composing a book, and how major publishing houses view, produce and promote books.
It's good to talk.
