The End of the Road

I’m sure you all can identify with this. Years ago I started something that rolled on its own beautifully and only needed an occasional push. This blog is that thing. Then the contributors started being published and happy and busy. One by one, they dropped off the list of contributors. Continue reading

It takes a Village of Writers by Roxanna Haley

I’ve had the pleasure recently of working with a great group of authors and publishing the fifth anthology in the Bowman’s Inn series. Five times, we have met deadlines, sweated through the editing and rewriting, and done our best to get these great stories noticed by readers. The task was fun, but not easy. Continue reading

Beta Reading versus Critiques by D.L. Hungerford

The Best of Happy Authors Guild’s 263 Posts by D. L. Hungerford

Writing blogs can be difficult. Often we are talking to ourselves because the audience doesn’t hit the like button or comment or even breath loud enough to let us know they are there. But lucky for us, WordPress keeps stats of how many people viewed our posts. Maybe I don’t mean lucky. Continue reading

What Is Your Quest? by D.L. Hungerford

If you know me, you know I have way too many quests. I seek the Holy Grail, to become a Hybrid Published Author. I seek to finish my trilogy by the end of the year. I seek to keep my anthologies working and moving forward. And in my spare time, I seek to read a bunch of books. Continue reading

They often friended me to tap that knowledge. And that’s the only tapping that went on back then.
