Mary Rosenblum attended the prestigious Clarion West Writers workshop in 1988, where she sold her first SF story to Asimov's Magazine editor Gardner Dozois and her writing career took off. She published 8 novels with NY publishers as Mary Rosenblum in SF and Mary Freeman in mystery, was a Hugo and Nebula finalist, won the Sideways and Compton Cook awards, and received a lot of critical acclaim for her fiction, both short stories and novels. She began teaching writing, fell in love with that, and now works one-on-one with novice writers as a 'literary midwife' taking authors through drafts, final editing, publisher-matching, and self promotion of their books, to make sure it gets done well. She has twice returned to teach the Clarion West workshop and lives in rural western Oregon where she flies a small plane to as many cool faraway places as she can.

A year ago, I was an aspiring writer who (like, I'm sure,thousands of others) was overwhelmed by the opaque process that is the publishing world. But I had one overwhelming advantage, and her name is Mary Rosenblum. She's been mentor, guru, and guide. It's thanks to her that I've just signed my second book contract. Luckily, all authors can now have Mary's expertise at their fingertips with this concise, timely guide. It is a well organized and thoughtful roadmap that takes a practical approach to navigating the paths and byways of publishing rights and contracts.
