Hi All -
I'm very interested in the entrepreneurial side of writing since it's so hard to support yourself on book advances alone these days. It's also why I also work as an editorial consultant and multimedia events producer. I'm so interested in other ways people are making money. Please check out my work at www.lehmannhaupt.com
, and here's my bio:
