Seventh Star Press blog with Literary Underworld founder and head functionary Elizabeth Donald. A successful author in her own right, Ms. Donald operates the unique collective known as the Literary Underworld, a promotional outreach program for independent and small-press authors which includes an online webstore and an ongoing run of convention circuit appearances.
The interview is both insightful and informative, revealing how the Literary Underworld began and what its primary aims and goals are, in addition to some candid and rather humorous commentary on the trials and tribulations of operating an online business while dashing madly about the country from one book fair to another - and writing a book or two in the meantime. It's a witty and engaging look into one author's efforts to succeed and thrive on her own terms, and maybe help some other struggling authors along the way.
Be sure to visit the Literary Underworld bookstore, where you can directly support independent authors such as Elizabeth and Stephen - and put a little gas in Elizabeth's Camry (or even help her get that van she so desires).
