There is an interesting article on the Times Online website this week about the controversy between the large book stores and big-time publishers, which I thought some of you may be interested in - Buyer Beware.
This article supports the post I wrote on The Book Selling Debate and Suzanne Ruthven's advice that small publishers are more supportive of new writers in the article Plotting and Coursing Your Novel with Suzanne Ruthven
As a mother of an ADHD daughter, I know exactly what the president of the Association of Authors’ Agents, Clare Alexander, means.
However, as Susan Abraham pointed out on Jude’s Writing Blog, small publishers in UK take on few manuscripts a year, compared to the hundreds received each week. The publishing world is becoming more and more competitive. I would be interested to hear your comments and opinions on this debate.
