Learning theTrade

For the past 10 years, I have been learning as much as I can about how to get a book ready for publishing and the publishing field, as well. Somewhere in the middle of those years, things began to change in the publishing field. Still, I think a good story remains a good story, and that while methods of operation are becoming different than in years past, it still takes a well-crafted story to get published.
My concern is that people without a lot of experience behind them are the first to read and evaluate a story. Maybe it’s possible that writers who deserve to be published are passed over due to this fact. It doesn’t seem fair!
Right now, I’m finding out about what makes a (hopefully) successful cover or query letter. This seems to vary from publishing house to publishing house. Very frustrating! I’ll keep trying, though.
