On February 3, 2016 The Daily Reflector ran an interesting article on Diane Taylor and Taylor Made Publishing located in Greenville, NC, entitled “A Story of Success, Pursuing Dreams.” The article covered the company’s inception as well as a few stories about some of their first clients. Pamlico Writers Group contacted Ms.Taylor and are pleased to announce that she will be our August 16th Luncheon Speaker. A few of the topics she’ll be covering are: What are publishers looking for? What should authors look for and be aware of before submitting their work? How does the overall publishing process work?
