Things to Know

There is a super meaty interview of Kirsten Cappy, literary publicist over at the Class of 2k11 this morning.

She talks about how bookstores choose which books to carry...about how cover art and other people influence a books sales...how to use social media depending on if you are writing commercial or literary, young adult or middle grade.
No matter where you are in this writing journey....these are good things to think about.

Link over and check it out!
