Over at Buzz, Balls and Hype, M.J. Rose has been doing a series of short interviews/essays from people in the publishing world called  “Writing is an Art, Publishing is a Business.” The Art/Business juxtaposition of the two aspects of our daily work has been enlightening.

Today’s entry from Simon Lipskar is especially relevant, considering this blog is made up of 13 debut writers. Good advice for all of us and all of you.

Simon makes the point that I’ve been slowly coming to realize is central. The most important thing we can do is to continue writing. Yes, I will do events, do mailing, etc. And those are important and necessary. But if we don’t put the writing first, there won’t be anything to market!

Bill, you are exactly right. No amount of promotion can save a bad book.
