While on my three-day writing conference binge, I met M. Todd Gallowglas, a self-published author and his cover illustrator. The two were a lot of fun and talked to me for quite some time. It's quite nice being able to interact with other authors. Although I plan on publishing through traditional methods (a publishing company) instead of self-publishing, I can definitely still respect all the hard work and dedication it took Mr. Gallowglas to get where he was from scratch. Awesome Guy!
