There is still a place for traditional publishing, and we're now seeing a new
breed: those who call themselves 'hybrid' writers. Some of their work is published by traditional publishers, and

writers, and working with a stable of writers to publish books in a range of genres.

of articles, and when I read through the articles on writing technique, I can see that the advice in them is just
as relevant as ever. Good writing is good writing! To win loyal fans for your books, whether you are an Indie
writer or your books are published with traditional publishers, you need to be the best writer you can be. You
should never stop learning.
Writing for Success E-courses and Assessment Services

assessment services are going to be put on hold for a while.
See you on the blog!
