My blog has strayed. The original topic about when to cease editing a manuscript and move onto the next project has actually moved into another realm—Marketing! This week’s question asks you how a relatively unknown writer can attract a publisher’s interest. Please, writers, visual artists, musicians and all other creatives weigh in.
To thank you for your support, here’s a related visual—a proud Floridian crane or Great White Heron (not exactly certain which but I am told it is a Great White, yet Sibley’s Guides has a few other suggestions). Nevertheless, the bird is “craning” its neck and isn’t that what marketing is all about, stretching to stand out from the others, reaching perhaps to attract attention or grasp something valuable? This striking photo comes from Kate Ryan’s photo collection. See more Kate Ryan’s photography work and imprinted items at:
