  9. Short, sweet, and to the point.

    Nice to see so much of the advice I've read in long-form condensed.

    Why did I ever think getting my novel to a publisher was difficult? Obviously, this will be no trouble at all. :-)

    Thanks!

  12. This is awesome. And I don't even want to begin to imagine how much time it must have taken to make...

  13. How about this? On flowchart, the "I'm self-publishing" option should lead to "Publish it yourself on Kindle / Start making money within a week." Seriously! Many writers are already doing this. Why put yourself at the mercy of uncaring agents and editors, wait years for publication (if you're lucky), and then earn pennies per book? Been there, done that, never again. Technology allows us writers to be masters of our destiny.

  14. Anon - I could add that, with some editing, but it's still going to end up at "write a new book."

  21. My agent, Deidre Knight, forwarded this to me because she knows how many times I've been asked "how do I get published" - especially by people who've never written a word. This is brilliant!! I totally blogged it, too, giving you full credit, of course. Keep up the good work! = )

  41. Super flowchart! Best wishes for your book with Michelle Andelman. She once rejected a partial I'd sent her, but she wrote a very nice rejection. I'll query her with my new WIP when it's done ... (revised) in about 3 months.

  42. LOL... I love it! But the chart makes out to be much easier than it is. ;)
