Eric’s answers to frequently asked questions about writing and publishing.
Advice on Writing & Publishing
People often ask Eric for advice on writing and publishing, and while he wants to be helpful, he generally prefers not to comment on other people’s work or to recommend publishers to them. Eric feels that he is a writer, not an editor, and he can only say how he does his work and cannot tell others how to do theirs. In addition, Eric tends to refrain from offering advice on how to get published and the business of publishing because he entered the industry so long ago. However, Eric would like to pass along the following list of resources that he hopes will be useful for you.
