Road to Publication (Reprise)

Over a year ago I made a series of posts documenting the things I discovered on my road to publication with Pan Macmillan, and offering advice to new writers who are looking to get published themselves. A comment in an earlier post reminded me of it, so I thought given that I’m more well-known online now I’d put them up again. Essentially, it covers everything from before you start, to what you do when you have a finished manuscript.

I was someone who worked in bookselling and publishing as well, so I had a pretty good grip on the industry, and although nothing is ever guaranteed, I like to think that this advice would really increase a writer’s chances of getting published.
