Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowskiAn author asked this, and yes - we are still bringing books to acquisitions and making offers on books. Lots of them! The publishing world hasn't slowed down. We're all still going to need books. We're all still working. We have a lot of time to READ! :) :) Keep writing.
Carlisle Webber @carliebethRatatouille said it best: not everyone can be a great chef, but a great chef can come from anywhere. The same is true for novelists. Don’t worry about connections, money, social media. #Write your best book. That’s 98% of the battle. #amwriting
Sue Canfield, Ausoma @SueAwesomeIt's not the number of social media followers you have that impresses literary agent @gordonwarnock #NFWC. What's more important is having a high level of interaction and engagement. Are you reaching your target audience & are they engaging, sharing, commenting, and retweeting?
100%. If you have a ton of followers, and nobody cares enough about what you're saying to comment/like/share, it's not a good indication that they'll care enough when you say, "Buy my book." #PubTip
Mary Keliikoa @mary_keliikoaI'm in the beginning stage, but I wish I'd known getting the deal doesn't speed anything up. "Patience is a virtue" must have been coined from the publishing industry! But community is everything. Hold onto it. Appreciate it. It takes you through the darker days. @Debut19Chat twitter.com/DebutAuthors19…
