As a writer, you need to have a strong online presence, be tech savvy and have a website that showcases your talents and services. But how to create a writer website without breaking the bank and hiring a web designer?

It’s been a little over six months since I started down the rabbit hole to Queryland and I have learned SO much. So, I thought I’d share a little about what I’ve learned about writing and submitting query letters so you can avoid some of the mistakes I have made.
