Today's #PubTIp: When working on a publishing contract that is over a dozen pages long, be sure to put your keyboard away when a toddler is... oh, I don't know, awake and grabbing everything nearby?

Don't think this publisher cares about a grant of rights for "aksdjhfajkldshf."

When pitching around a book, it’s a good idea to have Chariots of Fire playing in the background, to make the experience nice and epic. #pubtip

Reminder: Don't give up. Keep pushing. Run those books into the ground.

The universe might surprise you. #pubtip

The best part of #AWP17 is when the literary agents battle in single combat under the midnight sky, over the authors we've found. #pubtip
