Writers who want to publish should listen.

I love all things books and writing process. If you want to be a writer, then write. If you want to publish and be read, then listen to this podcast for professional advice.

Excellent!

Carrie is smart, has amazing book experience, and has gathered together a fun and capable team of contributors. This is an easy listen and so inspiring. Go out there and make your author dreams come true, people!

Still a fan

After being her most consistent source of constructive criticism for over three decades, it's pretty cool to have finished listening to Carrie's fifth podcast with the same proud feeling that she is managing to be genuinely "Carrie" while meeting her goal to offer others genuine help with their creations.
