I joined the Writers' Union just before my first book was published. Honestly, this was only because a smart writer I admired told me I should do it. I didn't even know how much I'd need the Union until after my book came out! I am so grateful that I took that advice -- the Union has been a consistent source of support, information, and legal counsel. A crucial part of navigating the first years of published life.
