Industry Interviews – Introduction by Cassiel Knight
My role as a “Jane”, besides sharing my journey, is to share industry information with our readers. In light of that, coming soon, I’ll be sharing interviews of publishers sprinkled with interviews of agents in my Wednesday spot. While I will have some Big 6 interviews, my main focus is on digital publishers and small press. I hope you will find them interesting and discover new places to submit your work.
The first one, an interview with Soul Mate Publishing, will be posted next Wednesday.
For today, I thought I’d just give you a few links of some digital and small press publishers I’ve had interactions with and find them savvy and passionate about the industry, their business and their authors.
