Sad but true!

Check out this excellent article on the realities of the publishing industry. (Thanks to Fiction Bitch for this link.)

A useful follow up to some of our previous debates on the subject. And so true! I genuinely believe you're better off trying to get a first novel published - at which point you still have the potential to be The Next Best Thing - than subsequent ones. Unless, of course, you hit the jackpot first time round.

Which is as likely as - er - hitting the jackpot first time you buy a ticket ...

But don't let that put you off. Please! Someone's got to win it and it could be you!
