Self-Publishing Advice & Inspirations

Jan 19, 2020

My guest this week is Thomas Lloyd Qualls, whose personal quest for meaning took him from a law career to becoming a self-described vagabond who backpacked throughout the world. Along the way, he gathered material for two books of dreamlike, transcendent fiction that echo his own spiritual search. 

Every week I interview a member of ALLi to talk about their writing and what inspires them, and why they are inspiring to other authors.
