So while i'm waiting for the publisher to get back to me with the first round of edits, i am networking with other authors and learning the ins and outs of the writing world. I have learned amazon can be a prick and so can other authors. Some seem to think there is only room for them and their books. I am of the other opinion. for instance, once i read a book i'm not likely to pick it up again. There are a few i will re-read. This being said, in my opinion more authors should be willing to help each other learn. And why would you not share what your super talented friends are up too? Aren't you proud of them? You want them to be proud of you.
