This is not an entry, but rather a comment from someone who doesn't have a blogger account. I just wanted to point out the following, taken from Ms Roth's entertaining testimonial on the Treble Heart Books site:
"Working with a small publisher involves managing your own publicity, but that fact is more than compensated for by not having to deal with literary agents."
We're such a troublesome lot, I agree. All these complex directions: no email queries; books must have plots; spell names right! Honest to dog, you can see why someone would want to avoid us...right up until the time someone says "movies make money".
