Fiction doesn't need a huge platform to be traditionally published! I didn't know that.

I'd learned that you must have a social media account with at least 2,000 followers and a well-established email list before you could have a chance at being traditionally published.

Now I learn that's true if you're writing non-fiction, not fiction. To be published in fiction, you just need to write it, have it professionally edited (Sorry, friends/family don't count even if their job is being an editor), write a query letter, and pray.

If I had known this sooner, I could've saved my boyfriend and myself about three thousand dollars.

Chalk it up to learning pains.
