The Publishing Industry:

The Way It Is Now...

The Way It Will Be Tomorrow...

If you don't know by now, you need to understand the following concept:  NYC book publishers are not in business to sell books. They are in business to make money.  Selling books is the medium by which this happens.

What sells?  The answer is a good story.  The answer is also good writing.  The manuscript must exhibit a salable story, unique in content and different in story idea.  Everything else can be made to work.

You need to create a story that makes reviewers turn pages from the get-go. The reviewer should say, "Wow!  A different kind of story with creative dialogue and narrative! Outstanding!"

A story not interesting enough with writing less than it should be will not sell via a NYC publishing house or vetted on the web.  Quite simply:  Anything less doesn't work.  Deal with it.

Excellence works.  That's what sells.
