With my very first book, my editor told me, “I don’t care what your book sells in the first week. I care what it sells in the first ten years.” Now we’re at the point where it matters what your book sells before it’s even for sale!

A #thread about #preorders. #publishing👇
Preorders, of course, are when you order a book (or anything, really) before you can actually buy it online or in a store. There are some upsides to this — you guarantee you’ll get it on Day One, for one thing…
…and if it’s something with constrained availability (like, say, the newest iPhone) and you REALLY want it, it’s comforting to know you can definitely have it ASAP.

I want to talk a little about what the term #DiversityJedi means to me.

So today I did a booktalking session for librarians at a small conference. And here's the thing. It was mostly pretty great. But. I made some mistakes. And I want to talk about that and what it means.
I was so tired of lugging books around and I was presenting AT a library!! A library I knew had a really big budget and bought lots of new titles by marginalized authors. So I decided I'd just pull books to booktalk when I got there. This was mostly a pretty solid choice!
But it also meant I made some mistakes. I didn't have time to carefully make sure I was talking about a wide enough spectrum of books. I realized afterwards I hadn't included any books by Indigenous authors and I could have done a better job including titles by Latinx authors.
