Hoping that some day (soon), I will join the ranks of published novelists, I was excited to read Catherine McKenzie’s post on Writer Unboxed. I knew she would unravel some publishing mysteries for me and other hopefuls.

The headline to her post, “5 Things I Wished I Knew Before I Published My First Book,” reeled me in. If l learned one thing from her experiences, I would be a little better armed for what the future may bring.

“…publishing does have its rules and regulations and complications—again, just like any industry—and there are a few things I wish I knew before I started along the path.”
