Never stop chasing your dream

Hi Friends!

I wish I was writing today to share great news, but, unfortunately, that is not the case.

I'm writing to let you know that the publisher who picked me up is CLOSING THEIR DOORS.

In this first installment of "Being an Endeverite," I'd like to talk about some of the authors. I'll have a separate blog series in which I interview them, but for now, this piece is about what I call the Short Story Prompt Challenge.

Each week, an in-house author at Endever challenges another to write a 1,000 word short story with a challenging prompt. Author Heather Eagar challenged me with the following message:

“Claire, I am challenging you! You get to write…

FYI!

Check out Endever Publishing's blog today! I wrote a blog post with advice for new writers. This advice was also featured on a previous blog post I wrote, when I interviewed myself. :)
