Coming Soon

One of the best arguments for pursuing publication through traditional sources is the assistance the author would get with marketing their book.

Yet, the rumors abound that a first book actually gets very little support.

I have a contact who did manage to get published via a well-known imprint. I'm looking forward to asking some questions and getting the feedback that we all desire.

How much help does a new author really get with their first book?

Stay tuned, I hope to present some very useful information in the near future.

Kat - I would be very interested in any responses you elicit from this investigation. I am of the opinion that, even if the publisher does A, B and C, a writer should be willing to do the following few letters over the 15 or so months that follow release, until Z is reached. When one has exhausted all possibilities, then one can rest. There are so many, however, that there is no rest for the... the proverbial.

Yes, this is going to be a big surprise for a lot of people. I've been hearing the rumor for a long time - all I can say is some people are going to be shocked.
