Fyreside Publishing Sale Event

Fyreside Publishing: “So often when we first begin our writing journey, we don’t tend to focus on the important aspects of what it means to invest our time and energy into being an author. We have grandeur dreams of making our names known as the acclaimed names before us only to experience the hard dose of reality – not all of us are going to become the next Stephen King, J.K Rowling or Stephanie Meyer. As a matter of fact, that is actually very rare and requires being in the right place in the right time. The truth is, it’s okay. Don’t make it about the fame. Make it about what you love to do. Remember why you did it in the first place.” — Excerpt from “The Hardest Thing to Do Is Start“ featured on MythicalBooks
