- If you’re planning on finally editing your manuscript in 2018, here’s some advice from eleven famous authors to help you along.
- And finally, check out this compilation of the most-rejected books of all time … that were eventually published. Can you imagine 162 rejections? Youch!
Hope you enjoyed this week’s roundup. Have a great weekend!
