Hello, I'm Jennifer Fulford, a journalist turned fiction writer. I consider myself one of the lucky ones because my first novel was picked up by a traditional publisher. But I have a keen interest in self-publishing and micro-publishing. I believe there are many paths to publication, and this blog is my main outlet for exploring what it takes to be a writer and discovering the meaning of creativity and the nuances of success. My day job is as a science writer and editor in Asheville, North Carolina. I lived for three years in Portland, Ore., and consider it my adoptive home. Find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @jmfwriter.
