I forgot to mention a few things. I'm going to use this blog to talk about writing, and some things to do as well as some things NOT to do.
There are so many aspiring authors out there. They all have the same dream--to see their name on the cover of a book. (or, as in my case, their pseudonym.)
How do you get there, though? Hmm, good question. Over the ensuing weeks, I'll be posting some hopefully helpful tips to other writers.
Today's tip is: Submit what the Publisher Asks For. What does this mean? Simple. If the publisher asks for a synopsis, query and 3 sample chapters; don't send more--but don't send less either!
I've heard editors talk about how they don't receive what they ask for. It's annoying!
