Next Up On The Lit Coach's Guide

Hello Writers!

I'm seeing several new faces have recently joined my humble blog here - welcome!

Join me Monday when Janna Cawrse Esarey, author of The Motion of The Ocean: 1 Small Boat, 2 Average Lovers and a Woman's Search for The Meaning of Wife shares her path (if an ocean has a path) to publication. The title alone makes me want to buy the book! Earlier this Spring I had Janna's editor, Michelle Howry on to discuss the role of Confidence in a writer's can check it out here to get a peek at what to expect with Michelle's great tips. And you thought getting your book published on dry land was tough...

ALSO! I'm calling out for your questions for another round of Q&A with The Lit Coach! What's keeping you from moving forward with your work? Scared of rejection or even success? Not sure how to prioritize your writing/social media/research/connecting time? Have questions about agents or anything else publishing world related? Send them in and I'll do my best to answer them. Deadline for questions is Thursday, Sept 23rd.

Have a great weekend, writers!



  1. Hello! I'm very new to your blog, and have only read two or three articles, but I found the one with 'Agent Kristen' to be very helpful. Thanks so much for making this blog!

    I'm a young author, and I have read online quite often that age doesn't matter. However, many young authors don't have experiance with publishing- such as query letters. I understand what they are, but was looking for an example- I know that the pitch is involved, but what else is necessary in one? How do you begin?

    Thanks, and I hope you can answer my question!

  2. Thank you! I'm glad you find this blog helpful to your development as a writer. I'll be glad to answer your question in my Q&A with The Lit Coach in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
