Pikes Peak Writers -- Know Your Market

I was on a panel last night in Colorado Springs for Pikes Peak Writers http://www.ppwc.net called "Know Your Market." I'm going to be brief today (I can see you all laughing) because I want Shanna's book to remain near the top of my blog.

Advice: Don't write for market trends! Write what you want, what you READ, and then research markets.

The best place to find out about markets is networking in person or online. Online groups and loops and other sources (Publisher's Lunch) are also good.

That's it for today -- naturally, I could ramble on (and did, I got to tell some of my fav stories ;) ), but I'll spare us both that today...

Love to all,
