After spending five years working on his first novel, Jeremiah Magone anticipated soon quitting his day job to write full time.

“After the book was published and didn’t sell, my focus became, ‘How do I write for a living and get paid, so I can keep moving forward with my passion?’” he says.

Read on to find out how an email from AWAI — along with some well-timed advice — led Jeremiah from a career crossroads to experiencing the writer’s life.
