If you haven't been checking out JA Konrath's blog, you're missing out. Granted, I have probably raised him to mythical proportions in my mind, which I'm fine with, but his blog "A Newbie's Guide to Publishing" is brilliant IMHO.
I'm one of those mid range authors ---well, okay, maybe one of those lower class trailer park mid range authors. I once told someone it was like I'm doing well in minor league baseball.
But I want to go up to the major leagues, baby.
While nothing is a guarantee of success, Konrath basically gives the good 4-1-1 at this link here. Check it out.
