Book Publishing News for Amateurs In 2021
I belong to this group of writers on social media where I usually just lurk because some of the posts I see leave me wondering. The people there all claim to be writers and yet they don’t seem to know anything about publishing or even the basic aspects of how the publishing industry works. We are talking totally clueless. There’s nothing wrong with being a beginner, but it’s a shame so many don’t know about all the free publishing information there is out there. You don’t have to be clueless anymore. I learned a good deal of what I know about publishing by reading and watching good free information online at least 20 years ago. So can you learn, because now there’s even more info out there.
I’m linking to an article right now that focuses on 5 different publishing-related blog posts that are current and relevant. You can find the links to each one right there.
What are – from a distance?
How do speak to each other?
When will the romance genre ?

Can this union drive ?
Here’s more. At least 20 years ago my only social media consisted of reading publishing websites and blogs. Many literary agents had websites and blogs back then, which I found fascinating. I would learn about the industry, I would learn about how publishing works, and I would even make contacts in the publishing industry that led me toward writing jobs. And there are still things like that available to new writers and they won’t cost you a dime. Take advantage of all this great advice out there, and never, ever pay anyone for it.
