Secret Master of Prodom

My friend Andrew Zimmerman Jones points out that I'm referred to in this article over on Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. On the topic of how to move out of the slush pile, my editor David G. Hartwell says: "Get a personal recommendation. If Robert J. Sawyer comes up to me at a con and says I know this talented writer and you've got to read her right away, I will."

This is what I've been telling 1st timers when they ask me "How am I supposed to start networking the industry?"
Go to the conventions. Workshop with the writers. Let them get to know your work. If they like it they will happily provide introductions and recommendations to editors/agents.

Absolutely! And great to see you here, Randy! (Lurkers: Randy is the Chair of the 2008 World Fantasy Convention, which will be held in Calgary.)
