Burning Questions

So, you're writing a book... 

Or maybe you've written one and you're looking for an agent? 

Whatever the case, what questions burn for you right now? 

Do you need help with writing - plotting, characterization, self-editing, etc? 

Or are you uncertain how to deal with the rejection from potential agents?  How to write a good query letter?  Or what to do if an agent offers representation?

Whatever your questions, ask them in the comments here.  If I don't have the answer, I'll find someone who does.

Your Turn:  What do you wish you already knew?


  1. How do you format a book to epublish it on Amazon?

    How do you know when you are done editing/rewriting? (Feels like the process won't end.)

  2. Is Scrivener any good? Is it available for PC?

  3. Rob: I can (sort of) answer that one quickly, I've heard both published and unpublished writers sing the praises of Scrivener. I haven't used it myself, but it is currently available FREE in Beta for PC here:

    I understand that free version will run out next month when they launch for real, but it's a great way to get a taste and figure out if you want to use it.

  4. Hello Aimee,
    Thanks for this, very helpful. I will let you know what I think of it.
