A Publishing Primer

Over at her blog, Diana Peterfreund has posted a terrific primer on the publishing industry. Not only does she provide great, specific information on agents, publishers, and others (and answer important questions in the Comments sections), there’s a helpful glossary too.

Part 1
Part 2

Check it out! And remember this sage advice:

* There is no secret handshake.
* There is no magic ticket.
* You don’t need to know anyone.
* Every author was once a debut author. New authors sell books all the time.

  1. Astonishing. Your publishing experience is diametrically opposite of mine…as is your optimistic take on the publishing/book industry. I’ve been a professional writer for over 20 years and I can count the number of good editors, human editors, I’ve met on one hand. Agents: none. I’ve written posting on these matters so i won’t bore you. But I am intrigued and wish you all success.
