#LoveOzLit: Nova Weetman on the business side of publishing

#LoveOzLit Nova Weetman on what she wished she first knew about publishing

Nova Weetman

Nova Weetman is the author of Everything is Changed, the story of two friends and an event that changes their lives. She is a children’s TV writer and short fiction writer, and she brings up something that many authors have pointed out…

It’s just business

Getting published is good (I imagine). Hands up who disagrees? Anyone, no? But then, there’s the business side that other authors have mentioned. There’s no escaping the humdrum of it, but what all these authors have impressed upon me is that it’s as important to know and understand the business side of things as it is your characters and/or plot.

What do you think? Did you expect the responses to be so business focused?

  • With every creative venture, there’s always a business side to it too, and it’s crazy how much there is to know. You don’t even know how much you don’t know until you start looking into it. But I can definitely see why it’d be important for an author to know the business side of things in order to protect their work!
