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 children’s authors doing to connect with their readers – from a distance?

How do poetry and rap speak to each other?

When will the romance genre actually represent its readers?

Why are so many people turning to fanfiction during the pandemic?

Can this Amazon union drive change the American workplace?

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.

 Once Upon a Castle by Ryan Field


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
