Roger's Journey With Personal Chapters

Roger met Personal Chapters' Anne Spry through the Kansas Authors Club they both belong to. He was looking for help with his debut novel, Rusty's Repair, after having won a writing contest sponsored by the author's club.

Roger had audited a writing class at Washburn University and received lots of encouragement from his professor, Andy Farkas. He is putting what he's learned to good use. One of the most challenging issues for Roger has been the technical processes involved in getting a book published. Personal Chapters has been happy to help him navigate those sometimes murky waters.
