When I first got into this writing gig, I thought I would camp out in a cozy attic room with a gabled ceiling, a roaring fire, and classical music playing in the background. This was the first of many, ahem, misunderstandings about the publishing world.

It’s been a long road.
Here is the real story of how it works, in semi-animation. God bless author Nathan Bransford who put this together.
