Trying to learn about publishing can be overwhelming. Whether you are just starting out, or have been querying for awhile, there's so much to it. Awhile ago I made a resource that I shared on twitter. It is called "The Roadmap to Getting Traditionally Published." Since then I've had many people link to the resource, and several people reach out to ask if I still had it available.
So, I decided to share it here to make it easier to find.
As a disclaimer, this is just one route to traditional publishing. There are other ways to go about it, and many other paths you can take. This just happens to be the most common route. So here we go. The roadmap to getting traditonally published:

I hope this resource helps. Trying to write a story and start on this path can be so overwhelming. But you can do it! If you have a story to tell, don't give up. Keep writing and keep trying.
If you have questions, I'm always willing to try and help. You can reach out to me through my contact form, or find me on twitter. I'm no expert. I don't have all the answers and I never will. However, I do love sharing what I've learned on this journey.
