Important Resources For Authors Part 2: Going To School

Cereal Authors

Authors are notorious for drawing back the curtain on the publishing industry by talking about their experiences with editors, posting their contracts, and even revealing their monthly income.  This rips the veil of secrecy that kept the publishing industry mysterious while keeping authors broke.  Oh sorry, I meant starving for their art.

E kay Eve of Destruction blurb

#EKsSpecialOps

As I watch the feed, a small figure bursts from one of the buildings at lightning speed and crosses the narrow alley disappearing into the opposite building. I’m assuming it’s the female I just heard on the comm line, but I’ve never seen anyone move that fast. Next, I listen in as she apparently locates the wounded man, even as they’re taking fire. I hear the sounds of 9mm pistol fire as they defend themselves. Amidst all of that, I hear someone giving medical instructions as they prep the wounded for evacuation.
