Editor's Corner January 2013

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to the first WITS Newsletter of 2013! Judging by some of the news stories of the past year, we are lucky to be here. The election is over, and the world did not end on December 21st. We have survived to fight (or in our, case, write) another day.

And speaking of which, it is time to get back to business. The houseguests have left and the last piece of fruitcake has been eaten (or is being used as a doorstop!), so there are no longer any excuses for not working on your book. If you are having some difficulty getting into the swing of things, remember that it has never been a more exciting time to be an author. Self-publishing has made it possible for writers to retain more control over their work, and social media has provided them with tools to get their message out into the world. Those “in the know” are already buzzing about 2013 trends in the publishing industry, so whether you plan to self-publish or seek traditional representation, be sure to start doing your homework now.

As for me, I am looking forward to another year of working with our wonderful clients. I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2013!
