What Do The Pros Know About The Publishing Industry?
If you’re a writer looking to be published, you need to learn about the publishing industry.

Fortunately, there’s lots of awesome people on the internet who are willing to share their knowledge.
A Novel Journey has a great guest post by Chip MacGregor, in which the president of MacGregor Literary, Inc., a literary agency, gives useful tips to writers looking to learn the publishing industry better.
