Good advice from Victoria Strauss. I just wish there were some suggestions on what DOES work, too!

I suspect what works for one book, may not work so well for another, even when it's by the same author.

Jim Hines and Victoria Strauss's were good, and Carolyn Kaufman's on being an interviewee was not only excellent, but covered some advice I hadn't seen before (but agree with).

I'm a new reader of Carolyn's blog, but so far, I'm most impressed :)

Excellent batch of articles, Jon, particularly from Victoria Strauss and Carolyn Kaufman's advice for interviewee's was excellent. I left a comment on her blog as well.
