About

616lsb2z0al-_ux250_I’m author Mindy McGinnis. In 2010 I signed with a literary agent after having spent ten years in the query trenches. Many of the mistakes I made during my path to publication were easily avoided, and I could have been published much more quickly if I’d done the necessary research. After learning the ropes through a large and scattered network of writer sites, blogs, and forums, I finally found a measure of success.

I started the Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire blog shortly after landing my first book deal, deciding to pay it forward by hosting a blog where I asked published and agented authors all the questions I’d had when I was aspiring.

In 2017 I decided that if the blog was going to continue to exist it also needed to grow and offer my followers something new. The Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire podcast is the result.
