Recently, I have explored many topics regarding publishing on my blog. I am an amateur next to my friends Josh and Andrew. I’d like to share a few helpful posts they wrote below as well as they are professionals at this and live breathe the selling and marketing of books. I hope this information is useful in your pursuit of your publishing dreams.
Everything you ever wanted to know about publishing. This is a series of blogs by Andrew Rogers who works for Zondervan a local publisher and division of HarperCollins. See the topics below.
