Some encouragement.

Earlier this year, I weighed all my commitments and realized that I needed to let some things go. Unfortunately, Pub(lishing) Crawl made that list, and while I am sad about it, I’ve been posting (almost) monthly for six years.

Working on multiple projects

One of the more difficult adjustments for newly published authors to make — and for established authors, too! — is the need to work on multiple projects at once.  There’s the book you’re promoting, the book you’re editing/proofreading, the book you’re drafting, the book you’re hoping to sell, and . . . sometimes more!
