A Kinder Friendlier Publisher
I read today about a publisher in Naperville, IL that will be reading and critiquing writers' submissions. The company, Sourcebooks, has publilshed a book called Publish This Book by Stephen Markley. Purchasers of the book may follow Sourcebooks' guidelines and have until June 9, 2010 to email their submissions in. Sourcebooks makes it clear that they will not necessarily publish any of these submissions, but they promise to provide a thoughtful critique within 2-6 months. http://www.sourcebooks.com/promos/publish-this-book.html
What a great gesture on the part of this publisher! And what an interesting way to sell a book!
