Right. Last time I asked this, about one person replied in the affirmative which I found remarkable since many people on here are looking for publishing help and advice.

If there is enough interest, I will undertake to interview my editor about the ins and outs of publishing for new authors, what you're up against these days etc... in short, a balanced view from someone who knows.

He has published books by, among others, Al Reynolds, Richard Morgan, James Barclay, Peter F Hamilton, Graham Joyce, the UK publications of Terry Goodkind, John Marco, Elizabeth Haydon.

He knows his stuff - do you want to hear the truth?

I think the interview is a great idea.....Even if the statements are frustrating and negative, it would still be a great learning tool.

Bring it on, I'm looking forward to it.:D

sounds good to me. as long as he is upfront and honest with us, it would be worthwhile. Do you think that he would really tell us if unsolicited manuscripts get looked at only when they are piled up on chairs for short people to sit on?

It would be nice if the editor is encouraged not to gloss his words but to blare the actual requirements in stark and naked English. It may be fiendish at first to read, but good advise is never sweet, so I have learnt.
