Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...if you want to know everything you need to do to catch the eye of an editor or publisher, check out this book. Maybe you'll be the 1% that makes it through — which, for most writers, is an offer they can't refuse." - Book Pleasures

"...an extraordinary compilation of data about the many publishing houses that exist, what their preferences are, who their personnel are, and everything else you need to know. The same applies to the section on agents and to independent editors who can assist a writer. Herman has a track record of representing bestselling authors and this guide will prove a worthy investment." - Book Reviews By Alan Caruba
