Smart Things

Lilith Saintcrow saying smart things about a bunch of stuff: you need more than a good book, self-promotion—the hard sell doesn't work, and the secret to getting published which includes the same be professional message I was talking about at SFNovelists a while back, among a myriad of other good advice.

Plus Dean Wesley Smith on what life would be like without agents, parts one, and two.

Wow, thanks for pointing me in Lilith Saintcrow's direction. The "hard sell" post was... er, illuminating and made me wonder just how much "Z" I've been in the past. Hmmmm.

Anyway, her advice at the end of that post? Worth its weight in gold. Weirdly? The bit about thank-you notes. I swear by them, myself.
