This is very well done. If you want to waste money get a publicist instead. Also it is fairly easy, by comparison, to get into a small press but that is like self-publishing without getting much money and having little power over your book. Most of the big publishing houses no longer hire editors, so you have to be really good at it or pay a lot for a good editor yourself. And very few pay advances anymore so there is really no good reason for having a publisher except for the status symbol which is tarnishing rapidly.
Good comments. When you get a chance why don’t you write a post about your past experiences and the current conditions. It would be great!
Because my publisher would not be pleased.
