Welcome To The Writer’s Journey: Mary Mackey On Writing Advice and the Writer’s Life

Amazon River, Welcome to the Writer's Journey Welcome to my blog The Writer’s Journey and my People Who Make Books Happen Interview Series. Each month I interview agents; book designers; magazine editors; writers; people who have expertise in digital publishing, and anyone else who has important things to say about writing, publishing, publicizing, selling, reading and enjoying books. I also give writing advice and post about Brazil, the Amazon, the Goddess-worshiping cultures of Neolithic Europe, and other topics.
