Weekly News Round-Up (August 26, 2022)

Howdy race fans and welcome to another installment of your favorite weekly festival of writing-, publishing-, and book-related news and information. The good news is that, once again, I've managed to do this on Friday, as I'm supposed to. The bad news, aside from the fact that my audience is still minuscule, is that I may not have to do any more of these because, low and behold, there is an article in this week's batch that provides the legend to the map, the keys to the vault, and the secret to the proverbial sauce. That article (under "The Business") is "How to Get Published," and it really does tell you everything you need to know about how to get your foot in the door (e.g., get an agent and have him or her open the door for you). Of course, before you can get an agent, you have to write something, so maybe my work isn't done here just yet.

Well, that's it for now. To coin a phrase, keep in touch and do good work.

We'll leave the light on for you.
