Random Act of Kindness - Here is a blog I'd like to share with you

I thought, for Random Act of Kindness day, I'd share with you a blog that I've found interesting and helpful.

It's Publishing...and Other Forms of Insanity.

Erica Verrillo has written seven books and published five. She doesn't know why anyone with an ounce of self-preservation would ever want to publish. But, if you insist on selling your soul to the devil, learn how to do it right: marketing, literary agents, book contracts, book promotion, editors, rejections, pitching your book, how to get reviews, and ... most important of all ... everything she did wrong.

The above text is straight from the horse's, er, Erica's website. Not only does she give this statement on her blog, she backs it up with helpful information and sites to point you in the right direction to learn how to publish the right way.

For example, her Links list includes Agent Query, Preditors and Editors, Publishers Weekly, and Publishers Marketplace. And so much more.

She has links on her site to her other Blogs and a wealth of information in her blog posts.

I could go on and on about Erica's site, but I'd rather you went and visited it for yourself and take your time, there is a lot to read. So, here is the link again, Publishing ... and Other Forms of Insanity
