I wrote a short piece entitle 7 Things I’ve Learned So Far for Writer’s Digest. 7 Things I’ve Learned So Far is a recurring piece on the Writer’s Digest website where they have different authors offer insight into what they’ve learned about the publishing industry. I found The Guide to Literary Agents, which has been subsumed into Writer’s Digest, to be an invaluable resource when writing Children of Paranoia, seeking representation and getting published. If you are an aspiring writer, I hope some of my advice helps and urge you to educate yourself about the industry so that you know how it works and that all the pitfalls that you see in front of you are there for everyone, not just you. If others cleared them, then you can too.
