 13 Years, 7 Months, & 35,000 Miles: One Writer's Road to Publication - Jenny Milchman's journey to publication took thirteen years, after which she hit the road for seven months with her family on what Shelf Awareness called "the world's longest book tour". Her debut novel, "Cover of Snow," was chosen as an Indie Next Pick, praised by the New York Times and San Francisco Journal of Books, and nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark and Barry awards. Her follow up novel, "Ruin Falls," also an Indie Next Pick, has just come out to starred reviews, and Jenny and her family are back on an extended tour. Cinderella story, dream come true? Yes, definitely, but there were also many struggles along the way. How do you achieve work/life balance when there is no balance? Is it possible to "car-school" two kids? And what happens when you hitch everything to a dream?
