- The Dos and Don’ts of the Author Bio (great tips especially pulled from Kelly Simmons blog on Career Authors!)
- Do you need to include social media numbers?
- What to write if you don’t have a lot of details to put in bio
Plus, Abigail shares one of her favorite tricks from Kelly Simmons’ article: Why a P.S. can create one final, special connection to the queried agent!
