Q & A with a Literary Publicist
Melissa Ximena Golebiowski is a Literary Publicist and owner of Lost Literati PR. Today we are discussing writing, the creative process, tips for setting time for your work and of course I must ask a professional publicists if she prefers self publishing or going the agent route. Loved reconnecting with my old NYC friend now a fellow LA Native, and naturally we discuss the difference between the coasts.
