        While I do read widely and enjoy trade history books (and other trade non-fiction), the majority of the books I’ve gone through in that time have been academic. That means that I have been exposed mostly to books created to fulfill professional curiosity and research gaps, not books created to entertain and teach the public about history. As you already know, The Writer encourages all of our readers to practice their craft and put their stories in front of the eyes of as many people as possible. Writing contests have always been a vital part of the writing world, giving writers the chance to have their work reviewed by editors and possibly published.

      Books are also given a star rating on a scale.

There are going to be long stretches where the book is with an editor, so I imagine they will write one, send it off to an editor, write the other, send it off, get the changes for book one back and work on those changes. Two books a year isn't all that stressful. Jake Bible has about 13 series going at once-now that's stress hahaha.
