comment How Much Can You Make From Writing a Book?
@mgowen: Well, consider how much they cost per copy and ask yourself how much you want to set yourself back? Publishing houses (usually) aren't stupid. If you can't get one to take your book, it doesn't mean you're an unappreciated genius, it means you're probably not going to be a commercial success. There are exceptions, and you should never give up after just one rejection, but sometimes it's just not meant to be.

comment Switching POV: Should it ever be done at all?
Those are more third omniscient (and I think Weber is going off the deep end by spending too much time with unimportant third parties...but I digress). I'm really thinking more about multiple 3rd person limited points of view. I do it, and I feel like I shouldn't.

comment How to switch pov characters mid-scene without jarring the reader?
You can also do the opposite: if you have two characters whose perspective you want to visit, visit them via a third character. This is more challenging because you'll have to convey their thoughts via action and dialog. Still it's often a better way to build a character than just dumping their internal monologue right out there on the page.
