Synopsis

There are many brilliant books out there, which have not been published because their author has not been able to successfully navigate the minefield that is finding a publisher. In many cases, authors make basic mistakes in their submissions, which ensure that they do not even get read by the correct person. Even if they do reach someone with decision-making power, they often fail to clearly explain the proposition of their book, or the target market. Claire Gilman is the perfect person to help you find a publisher for your manuscript. She has done it successfully, having had twenty of her own books published. She has spoken to many commissioning editors and agents about what they look for (and look to avoid) in a submission. And she has worked as a literary consultant, helping all sorts of authors to improve their proposals. Now, she combines all this wisdom into one book, explaining clearly 50 common mistakes which authors make, and how you can avoid them and ensure that your work receives the attention and the publisher that it deserves.
