Indie vs. Trad: Which Side Are You?

It’s time to set the record straight. To, once and for all, END this debate. One side claims its opponent isn’t legitimate and only an option for those incapable of getting a REAL publishing deal. The other side laughs at this notion. At these dinosaurs and their old ways of thinking. So, let’s go through […]

Yes, Lee Child Is THAT Awesome

Yesterday I saw a tweet from Alison Brennan (via Piper Bayard retweet) about advice Lee Child gave to a group of new writers.
