Sharing: If Hugh Howey ran Harper Collins

mjc-I would rather be working on my next novel

First, read this:

Hugh Howey’s… manifesto, declaration, whatever: Don’t Anybody Put Me In Charge

From a writer’s point of view—I kinda’ need them to figure this out. Because me—I’m not an entrepreneur. I am not a marketer. I am a writer.

Until they do… I have to do it myself.


About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance Tell Me, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) Consequences (of defensive adultery), and the rom-com (she's versatile) Cherry Pie Cure, as well as the non-fiction collection of essays Rough Draft Confessions: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway. Coming in 2018: Text Me, Cupid, a steamy romance in four episodes. Current WiPs: Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Jewel of the Not-So-Spectacular Boobs, All In the Cards, and Un-Valentine. Yes, working on four projects simultaneously is a spectacularly bad idea.
