You think someone understands publishing? :flan_laugh::flan_XD:

All publishing advice is survivor bias.

The one eternal truth: publishers want to exploit your work for profit. It's up to you to transform that into mutually beneficial exploitation.

@mwlucas it's so weird how these things happen. Doesn't seem like it should make a difference, if people are looking for litRPGs/GameLit/whatever we're calling them. Like surely it coming out first ought to make it foundational, not 'too soon for the trend.'

I never understand how publishing works ... I should really fix that ... XD

The Selkie knew too many stories of deceitful men. This one, pleasant as he was, clearly hid something.
"I must go," she said.
He let her.
But he howled when he saw her change: "Come tomorrow!"
When she did, under the full moon, a huge labrador jumped into the sea to greet her.

Longtime readers will remember THE MARKED, a book about near-death experiences triggering quasi-magical tattoos, grieving, and the absolute power of an enraged mother.

(When StoryBundle asks “do you have any books about psychopomps?” and all of a sudden your entire oeuvre is full of potential, it’s a lovely feeling.)

GDBee is making stickers and prints with half the sale (basically the profit) going to the Bail Project. they are an ultra talented black creator if you're not familiar.

I recommend perusing their shop in general bc they are a black creator in a rural area who can't afford to get out quite yet.

When you don't read enough litRPG books, so you tag them as RPGlit in your bookshop...

Sorry @vicorva 😉
