For the past week, over at my writer blog, I’ve been polling authors to try to determine whether personal connections in the publishing industry are necessary if you want to get a (fiction) book published. To consider this question, I asked authors about their experiences with the first book they sold, agent representation, and the editor they sold to.
Any of my readers here who are aspiring writers themselves, or just interested in the publishing industry, might want to check out my post on the results of that post. You may be surprised!
Feel free to discuss here or there. 🙂
