A round-up of our most helpful posts


Throughout the last two years, I’ve blogged about the behind-the-scenes processes of Carina Press, as well as general information about submissions, acquisitions and other topics that are helpful to all authors. I find myself linking back to these posts frequently, and I realized it would be wonderful if we could have a complete round-up of them, so I could link to one post and say “you should read all of this”. So, below, find links to what I consider our most helpful posts over the past two years!
