I mentioned a couple of weeks back that I'd been invited to join the Apex Book Company's Blog team.  My first post for them is up today.  I'm very pleased with how it came out. 

It's called WRITE WHAT THEY KNOW.  


I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks, David :)

They've got a whole bunch of new bloggers there, many of whom I read and enjoy on LJ, so I think the blog will be popular.

A good post! Unfortunately, it's no help for me, since I already know everything about everything.

Seriously, Peadar--I have no idea who this Stephen King person he cited is. I'd have thought he'd have cited YOU!

Well, the Apex site died on me when I went topost my comment, so I'll leave it here!

I LVED that post. I think its critical for new writers to understand the marketplace this way, but it also serves to how them that there IS no plot and that new writers ARE braking in all the time, on merit alone.

Thanks, Gustavo. Isn't it funny how most people who spout that particular conspiracy theory also tend to tell everyone who'll listen that there's no point in worrying too much about submission guidelines and that's all a numbers game?

Beyond good, your post is downright astute.
Don’t merely know your enemy and yourself,
