":-)  I love it. And sit on their samples for six months, then decide whether or not to respond at all?"

"I've never understood why writers don't put freelance editors through the same rigorous weeding-out process they use on us. Submit some of your work. If it's perfect, I might hire you. I feel the same way about agents -- show me your…"

I. J. Parker replied to Cam Winstanley's discussion What now for book publishers?
"Benjamin, I for one am fascinated by your UK sales.  Mine are lousy.   As our contracts support the idea that we're paying publishers to do a good job, this also extends to promotion and marketing.  Many trad. pubbed…"

"It's more to do with the Discussion vs. BSP ratio, John."

I. J. Parker replied to Cam Winstanley's discussion What now for book publishers?
"I agree. I like to hear what people are doing now and then.  I wish we'd talk more about why we write what we write and how we plan to move on.  The BSP goes under blogs and merely announces a new release or shares reviews. As for…"

"If we're doing the BSP thing, Dana has to get in on it, his new novel WORST ENEMIES drops (as the kids say) tomorrow. Self demotion is fine, but that's really a Canadian thing.  "

"Is there a penalty for self demotion?  I've been dabbling with it a bit here."

Dana King replied to Cam Winstanley's discussion What now for book publishers?
"John, what you're doing here is OK. The rules are against blatant self-promotion. This is more like insidious self-promotion. Plus, this next isn't self-promotion: Anyone who isn't hip to the Saints of Hell through their…"

Cammy May Hunnicutt replied to Cam Winstanley's discussion What now for book publishers?
"Au contraire. I have a new one out, a "crime" book in the more general "crimes against humanity" sense. Dueling DSP Desperados! In grudge match with Saints from Hell for a big ol humongous belt!"
Mar 1, 2012
John McFetridge replied to Cam Winstanley's discussion What now for book publishers?
"The Saints of Hell are in all my books (I'm sorry, even I can't plug them again today). Dana, that sounds like a really good idea and I'm kind of embarrassed to say I'd never thought of it. I'd also never thought of seeing…"
