Grit’s blog

Besides being a publisher author, Patricia is also the president of SPAWN (Small Publishers, Artists and Writers Network).

In today’s interview, she talks about her experience in the publishing industry.

Here’s a small excerpt of her interesting perspective:

When I published my first book, the publishing industry was more straightforward. It was not nearly as complicated and complex as it is today. What I tell new authors today, however, is study the publishing industry. Knowledge is the best gift that you can give yourself if you desire to enter into this highly competitive, complex industry.

Do you have an agent and, if so, would you mind sharing who he/is is? If not, have you ever had an agent or do you even feel it’s necessary to have one?

I had an agent once who turned out to be a scam artist. You must be careful when seeking representation. )?
