Submit Or Hunker Down?
Unleashed on September 28, 2009
We’re back! Peter’s returned from his seaside vacation, and Eve (whose Salmagundi Club kicks off the week) is engrossed by a discussion in the Colony that runs as follows: “Again and again I’m hearing that publishers and agents are very, very nervous of taking on anyone, particularly new writers, in these precarious financial times. So are we wasting our submissions by sending them in at the moment? Might it be better to hunker down and write another book (or two) and save them to submit when times are better (if ever)?” A big question, and lots of good advice in today’s show.
