Open Letter to New Publishers

Once again, Writer Beware Blogs!, specifically Richard White, has stolen my heart with this latest post, which begins:

Dear New Publisher:

You may have noticed people discussing your company on various web sites. Normally, this would be a good thing, I mean, free publicity, right? But, when you go to these sites, they may be discussing your company in unflattering terms and asking all kinds of questions about your ability to get books into bookstores.

“But, wait. They can’t say that about my baby.”

Actually, yes they can.

Read the rest, including a comprehensive list of questions that ANYONE thinking about starting up a new press should be able to answer FIRST if they really expect a serious venture to result (and anyone thinking of publishing with a “publisher” should ask of them as well!).

Spread the word!
