with M.J. Rose, International Best-selling Author of 11 Books and Expert on the Business of Being an Author
Authors need to educate themselves on the business of being an author. Not the craft or the art. But the confusing and complicated mess that is the business of publishing. How can an author navigate if they’ve never learned to drive this car – and most of us haven’t. Most of us come from other disciplines and learned those jungles but then get into this one and have an agent and a publisher and let them duke it out. And we should let them duke it out – we want to be the good cop in the good/bad cop scenario and let our agents take the heat.
