An Interesting Essay on storySouth

The reference provided by Dawn Goldsmith, active blogger and multi-published writer.

Jason Sanford, fiction editor of storySouth ...

  • The other day, a well-known author was presented with that oft-asked and irritating question, "What advice do you have for new writers?" Her reply: "Make sure what you have to say is worth reading, because our libraries are being filled up by minutia."
  • According to industry statistics, more books than ever are being sold, but these massive sales numbers are being reached because of fewer and fewer authors.
  • Stephen King. John Grisham. Nora Roberts. Forget everyone else.
