Advice for Novelists: Divorce your Book.

My column today at Writer Unboxed -- I write the advice I needed 13 years ago: divorce yourself from your book. I also talk about changes to the industry, being blamed for poor sales, and drunk frat guys. (My fave line here, "If you’re a writer not accustomed to failure by the time you’ve published your first book, I would like to collect you as a rarity and pin you like a Nabokovian butterfly to a cork board." and I would.) http://writerunboxed.com/2013/07/05/sold-your-debut-congrats-now-come-here/comment-page-1/#comment-404521
