  Yesterday I wrote about how I managed to get an article prior to doing an event for Without Grace, but there is actually more to this story. On that trip, I was asked to be interviewed for a local television show, hosted by Gordie Little. Naturally, I agreed, and apparently, the show aired quite...

  There has been much discussion about authors needing to have a platform in order to snag that much-desired publishing contract. This is much easier to attain if one has some sort of hook or built-in audience. It doesn't escape anyone's attention that most novels do not fall into the category of...
