Since I typed the END to my first manuscript to the release of my 10th traditionally published book on August 15th
(The Assassin’s Kiss,if you’re interested) I’ve learned so much about the business and industry we’re in. Some good. Some bad.
In September at the RMFW Conference I’ll be facilitating a workshop on the things I’ve learned, but in the meantime, I’ll spill some BIG INDUSTRY SECRETS.
Like I know any.
But I do know the struggle--the ups and downs, the roller coaster of signing contracts, marketing, failing and getting back up.
If you didn’t already know, I hold a record of specific distinction around town. I amassed over 1,000 rejections before I sold my first book.
So trust me when I declare, this business is all about patience. That’s my greatest advice. The slow and steady wins this race. Write. Work hard. Submit. Grin and bear each rejection. And celebrate the hell out of each victory.
25 Things I’ve Learned Going from Pre-Published to Multi-Published
Friday, Sept 9th 4-4:50pm Durango Room
Last workshop of the day! Margaritas welcome and very encouraged.
Do you have any burning questions about going from pre-pubbed to multi? Or better yet, any advice for the journey you’d give a new writer?
