Writing Excuses 7.43: Editing with James L. Sutter

Writing Excuses 7.43: Editing with James L. Sutter

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2012/10/21/writing-excuses-7-43-tie-in-fantasy-fiction-with-james-l-sutter/

Key points: To write for Pathfinder, first write for someone else professionally. Then get in touch with james.sutter@piazo.com. Be creative, but also write excellent prose. Avoid submitting manuscripts that have not been proofread. Don't be boring. To write tie-in fiction, start by doing the research, and knowing the setting.

[Brandon] Okay. And your book, again, was...
[James] Death's Heretic.
[Brandon Yep. All right. Thank you very much for being on the podcast. Thank you all for listening. You're out of excuses, now go write.
