Welcome to the KatTales Prime Writing feature, in which a first-time author discusses their debut novel or book.

Prime Writing is currently actively soliciting participants.

I’ve seen first-hand how hard it is for a first-time author to break into the industry. This is my attempt to pay forward all the help various writers have given me, balance the karmic scales and be a good writing citizen.

If you’re interested in participating in Prime Writing, please see the Features FAQ.
