26 Questions on Writing & Publishing: My Answers on Reddit

Reddit AMA

Last Friday, I had the honor of spending a day with the Reddit writing community, where I participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything). I answered such questions as:

  • Is self-epublishing being overblown?
  • Where can you find freelance editing and copyediting jobs?
  • What are some good conferences to meet agents in person?
  • How has agenting changed in the last decade?
  • Which publishers are responding in innovative ways to the digital revolution?
  • What are my favorite resources for authors?

And much, much more. Click here to read the complete Q&A. You don’t have to be a Reddit community member to read.
