As the Chief Editor of Books at Harvard Health Publications (the consumer health branch of Harvard Medical School), I am constantly seeking out great publishing advice.
Daily I am talking to literary agents, editors, publicists and authors. And, while the publishing industry changes almost as fast as my conversations with these folks occur, the good news is that despite the many changes, there are lots of fantastic opportunities for doctors who like to write.
In this blog, I'll share many publishing tips--some new and some tried and true. I'll answer your questions (if I can!) and help guide you with your publishing endeavors. I will also invite some guest bloggers who are physician authors to share their stories. Finally, I invite you to share yours.
The physician-author community is one that I'm proud to support and to be a part of. Helping patients to heal can be done in many ways and writing/publishing is an important part of medicine.
If you'd like to see more about my work in both publishing and healing, check out my website at www.JulieSilverMD.com. I'm looking forward to hearing from you, so tell me about what you are doing!
