Unsolicited Advice -- My Favorite!

What is the single best piece of advice you’ve ever received about the publishing process and/or would advice would you offer to a first-time author?

I actually have several bits of advice to share:

  • Read a lot.  Write a lot.  Live a lot.  All three will improve your writing
  • Be ready for anything and keep an eye out for opportunity.  You never know when something totally unexpectedly awesome might happen that will change everything.  
  • If the market can't find a place for your book right now, be patient.  Everything's cyclical, the trend will come back around.  
  • It doesn't matter how many rejections you get.  You just need one "yes" to change everything
And that's all from me today. I am braindead and very much in need of some time off.  Write happy!
