52 Bits of Useful Information for Young (And Old) Writers
In 2011, I was challenged to write a weekly advice column for writers, drawing on my years not only as a writer but as an editor – all the behind-the-scenes things that we learn by experience, often the hard way.Â It seemed a useful thing to do – after all, while writing is a craft, publishing is a business.Â A smart — successful — writer understands both.
Much to my surprise, “Practical Meerkat” became a popular Friday event at BookView Cafe’s blog.Â So popular, that in 2012 we released the ebook edition (cleaned up and updated, with a useful table of contents).
So, for $2.99 you get a yearâ€™s worth of first-hand advice from the popular â€œPractical Meerkatâ€ series, including:
- Knowing When Not to Complain (and how to do it)
- Bar Schmoozing with the Big Dogs (even if you donâ€™t drink)
- Dealing with a Difficult Editor/Agent
- and 49 more!
DRM-free formats: EPUB, MOBI/Kindle
What are you waiting for?
(for those who have asked: ‘meerkat’ has been my nickname since … well, since I started in the industry.Â And the advice is, indeed, quite practical…)
