In a time when many authors have to shill their own work (physically and financially) because publishers can't afford to or don't want to unless you're a Kardashian and they know people will line up for the book signing (yes, Kim & Co "wrote" a novel) we can get so caught up in promoting our stuff that we forget others have written books too.
In an effort to help a friend/mentor as well as recommend a book that I have read and really did benefit from I offer you an article I wrote about "Unhooked: How to Quit Anything."
Just don't quit writing.
