Tip: What's the biggest mistake new writers make? I can't do better than
to quote Marcela Landres of Simon & Schuster, who recently had this to say
to anyone who wants to publish a book:

"The number one mistake more writers make, even published ones, is
thinking that their only job is to be the best writer they can and that
everything else - - the boring marketing/publicity/sales part - - is
the publisher's job. Writers who think this way tend to be either
unpublished or unhappily published because they are abdicating responsibil
ity for their own success."
