Most writers run their careers the same way they did in the 1990s. But publishing has changed so much since then that any writer who works on the old model will no longer make a living. In this WMG Writer's Guide, international bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch shows you how to think about the new world of publishing, who to trust, and who not to trust. She also gives you a blueprint for survival-what to learn, what to ignore, and how to find help. If you are a successful professional writer-or hope to become one-then this book is for you.

"I have friends who have absolutely relied on Rusch's advice and it never leads them astray."
-Orson Scott Card,
New York Times bestselling author

"Not many people understand the publishing business as well as the author business-Kris Rusch is one of them."
-Kevin J. Anderson,
New York Times bestselling author

"Kristine Kathryn Rusch still knows twice what I do about writing and publishing. Good thing she's put all her wisdom down in a book so I can start stealing some of it."
-Steve Hockensmith,
New York Times bestselling author
