C.J. Darlington, co-founder of TitleTrakk, is running a great series on her blog: She started a series of blog posts in which industry professionals (editors, agents, publicists, authors, etc.) share their responses to this question:
"If you could say one thing to aspiring novelists, what would you say?"
Here's a publicist's point-of-view on the question: Make sure you're writing something that you love. Be passionate about the story you've been given to share and write it to the best of your ability. Infuse it with the things that you're learning in your own life, and you'll be amazed how much that reaches out to the readers and reviewers. That passion and purpose of writing makes publicizing a book much more straightforward, and your publicist will love you for it!
