Relationships in Writing

Aloha from Karen Whiting

 

"Karen

I am so thankful for relationships I’ve developed with writers, authors, and readers, in the world of publishing. It’s a small world in many ways and networking is vital to success.

Think beyond contracts and what you can get, to what you can give and how you can extend friendship.
