What's a platform superhero?
A platform superhero is a publishing insider, who willingly shares information with the world in hopes of increasing everyone's chances for publshing success in this crazy industry where pretty much nothing makes any sense.
One such platform hero is J.A. Konrath. For one thing, I love his tagline:
"There's a name for a writer who doesn't give up...published." Now that's good stuff.
For another thing, he keeps his advice real and his feet on the ground even as he succeeds book deal after book deal after book deal. I admire that in a writer.
And finally, we attended the same school for writing, Columbia College, Chicago.
And what do you know, just when I decided to name Joe the very first Platform Superhero, his fifth novel, Fuzzy Navel is due to hit the shelves next week. I hope it becomes a bestseller.
Thanks, Joe. Keep up the great work!
