YA Author Laura Moe gave an engaging presentation to the Monday Morning Writers Group. Having self-published one book and created her new book (Breakfast With Neruda) through a traditional publisher, Laura discussed the pros and cons of each route, as well as the need for obtaining (and possible paying for) permissions for quotes.
