    I’ve been writing for 37 years and have always published in print. My son and wife dragged me kicking and screaming into e-publishing, and thank God they did. I’ve been looking for a magazine such as Publishing Talk to figure out how to market my first novel, “Pageant of Savages.” Thank you so much for showing me into the future.
