This week on Hide and Create Moses Siregar, Diana Rowland, Jordan Ellinger, and Joshua Essoe talk about what you shouldn’t do in the publishing business.
Don’t be a dick. Take care not to take advantage. Meet your deadlines. Don’t join in the mob-trash-talk. Don’t take rejection personally. Help when you can. Build your platform, but don’t spend all your time promoting. Don’t forget that your main job is writing. Everything in this field is finding that delicate balance, and timing. Don’t be the person who sells sells sells themselves. Pay close attention to submission guidelines. Build your personal Voltron. Oh, and remember to wash behind your ears.
