We’ve been focusing a lot on self-publishing in the last few weeks. I enjoy working with self-publishing clients and recognize how much misinformation and confusion there is about self-publishing.
But many – probably most – writers still dream of being published by a large publishing company. Michael S. Hyatt is President & CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, which is the largest Christian publisher and sixth-largest trade book publisher in the world. Mr. Hyatt blogs at From Where I Sit.
In his post, Five Publishing Hurdles, on March 3, he explains the process a book proposal goes through at Thomas Nelson, which is similar to what happens at other publishers.
If you wonder what happens to your book proposals after they disappear into that mysterious “black box” (as Hyatt describes it), Five Publishing Hurdles will enlighten you on the process, including how many people and how many factors are involved, to get you either a rejection letter … or “the call” you’ve been waiting for.
