Let's Work Together

For the next two days, I want you to list questions about the craft of writing or the publishing industry. I'll post answers to your questions as we go along. (If I don't know the answer, I probably know someone who does.) I'll also leave a link on my sidebar, so whenever you have questions, you can post them there and I'll get back to you. This way, I can be sure my blog posts are suited to your interests. Sound like a plan? Let's do it!


  1. Sounds god. Give me a while to think of something.

  2. I'm curious about this thing I read from an agent recently...that if an agent had rejected an author more than once, that author should never query that agent again. Does that mean we can only query each agent twice? Could we wait a while and query again? What if we end up with a better project two years down the line and we want to hit that agent again???

  3. I've researched the industry for so many years, I don't know what else to ask!

    How about - With all of the rapid changes, how long before the old dinosaur publishing model finally collaspes? Self-published books exceeded traditional last year, ebooks are on the rise, small publishers are attacking niche audiences, and bookstores are dying - how long before the big giants in NY and their agents realize they no longer control the game?

    Think that one will have to be a discussion topic instead - LOL!
