On Writing & Publishing

People often ask Eric for advice on writing and publishing, and while he wants to be helpful, he generally prefers not to comment on other people’s work or to recommend publishers to them. Eric feels that he is a writer, not an editor, and he can only say how he does his work and cannot tell others how to do theirs.
