Riding on the coattails of those who have come before
Some authors will swear that one must be their own person and blaze new trails through the jungles of this wild industry. Others will go out of their way to shove down your throat the notion that their latest masterpiece is every bit as good as the chart-toppers of the day.
Personally, I feel the answer lies somewhere in the middle. That's what I explore in this latest edition, the 20th video to date, of Tales of a Midlist Author.
As usual, I hope any prospective and/or novice writers out there find this useful.
