Q - How important is it to have a platform as a fiction writer?

A - Good news--it's not important at all. Fiction pretty much has to stand on its own. Editors are looking for great writing. People buy fiction because they love the writing--they don't really care what has prepared you to write the book. "Platform" is something unique to the nonfiction writer. Fiction writers should spend their time polishing their craft.
