Why a Publishing House Kills a Novel, Responses

So have you any strategies a motivated author might try to get the buyers interested? Bribes? Gatherings where they can pitch their book themselves?

Writer a great book.

Seriously, that's all you can do. You're not involved in that part of the process.

Thank you for showing the common touch.

I must vehemently disagree. Vehemently.

Any author who thinks he doesn't have to be involved in the marketing process of his book is sadly mistaken. There's so much an author can and should do, rather than sit back and hope that the publishing house will market the book properly.

As soon as that contract is signed, a savvy author will get off his bumpter, get out there, and market his book.
