ACQUISITIONS: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

If you love to read, then the job of acquisitions editor for a small press is a dream come true. If you hate to dash dreams, are easily swayed or thin-skinned, find another occupation.

I am the gatekeeper who stands between you and the publisher. The publisher concentrates on production and relies on me to take queries and make decisions based on the needs of the publishing house. We share a vision and it's my job is to find manuscripts for that vision.

So, read the guidelines…

Chapter - VI

C06We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”

Yellow sand? Who peed on the beach?

***

Because the complaint mentioned a supposed mistake in a brochure, this brings up the topic of making sure you're as correct as you can be before writing down anything. I've discussed before about authors needing to be…

Around the Globe With Tricia Skinner

So, this morning, I pick up this week's feisty guest author and we're off to sunny Ochos Rios, Jamaica. We're lounging on the beach with a plate of fried breadfruit between us. Sun, sand, surf...ouch! What? Well, isn't that wonderful? She slapped my hand when I tried to take a piece of breadfruit. Now she threatens to do more bodily harm. What? Open a can of Whoop-Ass if I don't get my own plate?

Whew! Better get to the…

Book Art

I am new here and was cruising the forum when I ran into a post asking about others book covers,  I was going to reply with a similar post as I am making here until I noticed that the original poster made the forum request four years ago.....Oh well...but here's my story anyway....I am showing the cover of my first novel.."The Leaning Tower of Eiffel"..This is my daughter when she was about 13 years old overlaid on a vintage photo of a neglected, but historical water tower in my town.  The…

Why I Care What You Think

I’d like to believe I’m a smart author in that I want to learn from my mistakes. That being said, I’m finding that my most important “teacher" is you, the reader. What you say about what you read matters—a lot. That’s where book reviews come in.

 

By leaving feedback as to how you feel about what you just read on a book’s page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, wherever, you help your fellow readers discover new authors to love, but you also let authors know what we did…

Recently

I’ve had a lot of free time so I decided to spend it by writing. It’s just been so long since I’ve written anything. I have a lot of ideas; I just have trouble making a story out of them. I don’t know if its writer’s block or I’m just not creative enough. Whenever I feel down I write about what I feel and stuff and it always made me feel a little better. I’m currently an aspiring writer; my ambition is to become a published writer.…

WHAT'S YOUR GENRE?

Although I do astrology, I no longer ask people “What's your sign?” As an acquisitions editor for Oak Tree Press, I now ask authors, “What's your genre?”

The worst thing a writer can do is give me a blank stare. “Genre” is an essential part of the lingo in publishing lexicon. It's how we classify a book and decide if it fits our line.

Labeling books has practical reasons. Bookstores (when they existed) found it useful to put books…

Chapters - V

C05 “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

What did you expect the beach to be? Covered in tile?

***

Some of these complaints are more inane than others. I think my snarky comment, while made in jest, brings up a valid point. What did these folks expect when they went to the beach? A beach, one for tourists, is mostly sand. There are rocky…
