Your Publishing Path Should Be Unique

with
Laura McHale-Holland

What is your self-publishing goal? Have fun? Leave a legacy? Gain recognition? Supplement your income? Make a killing on Amazon? The combination of factors driving you is unique; your publishing path should be, too.

Laura McHale-Holland captures stories long and short, true and untrue in multiple literary forms. Having published four award-winning books—two memoirs, a collection of flash fiction and an anthology—she is now at work on a magical realism novel set in Illinois.

Interior Design: Important as the Cover, But Different Purpose

with
Skye Blaine

The text must be so clear and well-designed that it does not attract attention to itself, but allows the story or memoir to shine.

Skye Blaine writes fiction, memoir, and poetry: themes of aging, coming of age, disability, and awakening. She received an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University. Bound to Love: a memoir of grit and gratitude, was published in 2015; her debut novel, Unleashed, November, 2017.
