A catchy little 12 point guide to selling your self as a professional writer by Meg Rosoff. My personal favourite…
‘Contrary to popular belief, editors and agents are gagging for good books.’
Imagine you’re being paid 35k a year as an editor for Random House. You’ve got three kids, a husband / wife and a £350,000 a year mortage. Gagging is maybe too mild a word for how how desperate you are for good books.
You can probably boil down all 12 points to just one.
Write a good book.
