The Publishing Process as told by Nathan Bransford

Author Nathan Bransford put together something a little bit special and a lot funny this week. It's been doing the rounds on facebook amongst those of a writerly persuasion and is well worth a watch for anyone who hasn't seen it! (And a second, third and fourth watch, come to think of it.)

Seeing as even we on the Slushpile couldn't put it any better, here's the link:



  1. Thanks for the link. This was so funny!

  2. Yep, watched it several times! I'm at the screwing up stage at the moment

  3. That was so funny. And so true.

  4. Ta for the link, Candy! That was so funny. I laughed the hardest at the elf clip :)

  5. I saw, laughed and shared it in a personal FB message with SCBWI friends across the pond - not realizing I was shipping coals to them... Who knew he was a West coaster, former agent at Curtis Brown and now CNET social media manager, as well as author of Jacob Wonderbar. Way to go!

  6. Hee! I started belly laughing when I reached the owl!

    1. Haha! That bit's awesome! It's actually kind of what I look like when my alarm goes off in the morning...

  7. Thanks for posting this Jo!!! This is me, me, ME!

  8. God, me too, Candy! I think the Elf bit is my favourite. In fact, I think I WAS Elf when I got taken on by my agent!
