Many successful authors have taken the time and effort to share their thoughts on publishing your novel. Here is what Simon Haynes, known for the Hal Spacejock series has to say on ”  How To Write A Novel ” . There are some good tips here for people like me.

I read somewhere recently that the best way to get the first novel published is to write the second! That’s an excellent idea. I have got a few plans on a theme. I need to get cracking on it soon.

A few actions ahead, based on my experience with the first effort:

  • Keep brushing up on the first. There’s always room for improvement.
  • Keep sending queries. Someone out there could well like your work.
  • Keep an eye on the market for the kind of writing you do. If you want to sell your work, that is!
  • Keep stashing away your learnings- that’s the best way to profit from experience.

Excuse me, I need to roll up my sleeves and get right down to- beginning my second novel.
