Rocky Mountain Writer #56


julieJ.A. Kazimer & "25 Things I Wish I Knew 5 Years Ago."

At RMFW's big annual Colorado Gold conference this month, Julie Kazimer (a.k.a. j.A. Kazimer) gave a workshop called "25 Things I Wish I Knew 5 Years Ago – Moving from Pre-Published to Multi-Published."

Among those 25 tips was one very simple suggestion: don’t publish crap.

On the podcast, Julie dives a bit more into her workshop tips and talks about her publishing career, which didn't start until she received a combined 1,000 rejections for four different writing projects.

Perhaps Julie’s most well-known work is CURSES – An F’d Up Fairy Tale. Her latest is The Assassin's Kiss (Camel Books), the third in a series.

When she isn't looking for a place to hide the bodies, Julie spends her time with a pup named Killer.. She spent a few years as a bartender and then wasted another few years stalking people while working as a private investigator before transitioning to the moniker of writer.
