Episode 26: Advice from the Bookstore Next Door

EWe’re ramping up a new year and a new decade of writing resolutions -- and one of them is to sell out (in a good way)! We discuss what makes manuscripts appealing to publishers, and, perhaps more importantly, local bookstores. Joined by Gwen Hunter of Solid State Books, we also consider what roles smaller booksellers can play in popularizing your pages. Finally, we remember that rejection is growth -- most great literary works ran the gamut of criticism before being bought. Powered and distributed by Simplecast
