Should Authors Participate in Twitter Pitch Events?
Ever since the first time I heard of Twitter pitch events, I’ve been participating. First, as an author—which actually helped me a lot with my first published novel. After submitting and gathering feedback from those requests, I further revised the book until it became something I’m proud of.
Are you thinking about submitting to an anthology? Since taking submissions for my literary journal and my first anthology, I've learned that there are certain things that I do as an editor to narrow submissions. I hope that by sharing my process, it will help you in crafting a strong story to submit.

I decided to re-start my YouTube channel to share a little bit about my journey. I hope to begin regularly posting writing and publishing advice, along with some videos on what I'm currently reading and learning along the way. My first new video on the channel is the Authortube Newbie tag in which I answer a series of questions about my writing life.
In this vlog, I try using two twenty minute word sprints per project. I ended the day writing more than I usually do, so the experiment was a success.
My first impression of the book was that this was something I was going to love, and I wasn't wrong. The description and cover baited me, and the story held my interest all the way to the end.
