The path to publication can be long and twisted. It certainly was for me, with scores of rejections, setbacks, and false hopes. In this week's episode of the Write Your Novel podcast, I tell some stories from the road both good and bad on what it took to get my debut novel Locust Summer published. What got me through - in the end - was strictly separating the submission process and anything to do with publishing from my writing. So, let's dive into how to do that, and perhaps make your journey a little smoother than mine was.
