That post title sure grabbed your attention, didn't it?
Well, Jane Friedman, publisher and editorial director of the Writer's Digest brand at F+W Media, has compiled a set of extremely helpful posts from her There Are No Rules blog (which itself has appeared on our list of frequently checked blogs and links for quite some time). Subtitled "Jane's 2009 Tough Love Guide," "The Secrets to Publishing Success" covers a lot: editing and revising, querying/submitting, audience development/platform building, online audience building, indie (self) publishing, and "big picture" ideas. You're bound to find some information that you can use in your writing practice.
Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
