Have you ever had any of the following thoughts about your writing career?
“I don’t have the right degree”
“I’m too old”
“I’ve already been rejected a lot—it will probably keep happening”
“I don’t have the right connections”
“I don’t have enough time”
If you've had these or any other self-defeating thoughts about launching your writing career—or you are simply overwhelmed by all the publishing information out there and don't know where to start—this is the solution. After breaking down the most common fears authors grapple with, David walks the reader through how to write a professional essay, set up a website, increase the traffic of the site, get published in and on mainstream publications, write a book proposal and land an agent. Using the steps she took to establish herself first as a contributor to The New York Times, The LA Times, Playboy, Vanity Fair, Cosmo, Self, Redbook, Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Salon and many others and then to become an on-air contributor on The Today Show, The Talk, Inside Edition and hundreds of other TV shows on CNN, CBS, Fox News, MTV, VH1 and E, among others, David offers a no-nonsense guide to dominating the publishing and media landscapes. The author of six books and Editor-in-Chief of the addiction and recovery site AfterPartyMagazine, David shows aspiring writers precisely how they can build a career like hers.
