Dorothy St. James will talk about the experiences and changes she’s made in her publishing career since her first book was released fifteen years ago. She’s published with large publishers, small publishers, e-publishers, and self-published books. She’s worked with an agent but also sold books to publishers on her own. She’s made plenty of mistakes over the years, experienced a bit of luck, and is looking forward to sharing her professional ups and downs and lessons learned ever since quitting her job to write full-time way back in 2001.
