As you may recall, Rexroth (aka, my husband) is a writer, like so many of you. He comes from an indie culture background, and has strong and exciting opinions about the publishing world, on many topics. Just today, he shared a plethora of exciting links that I, for my part, are sharing with you. Because I think they’re pretty darn interesting, too.
Guys, I don’t want to do this. I WANT to respond to every query I receive. But if authors keep ignoring my advice to track their submissions, and keep resending queries I’ve already responded to, well, at some point I’m going to realize what a waste of my time and yours it is to keep responding to those repeats.
