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.
