Publishing Industry News
Main Stream Book Publishers, once seen as the ‘gate-keepers’ of the book world who maintained the standard of what the public read. Now most Main Stream Book Publishers simply refuse to accept them at all.
At the same time any sense of literary ‘standards’ has been comprehensively blown away by the rise of self-publishing, where anyone with a computer, a word-processing program and an internet connection can be a printed author in a matter of weeks.
Naturally, this free-for-all has led to a decline in overall quality, in terms both of the appearance of the books and of the text they contain. Without a concerted marketing strategy, which most self-published authors have neither the expertise nor the resources to generate, these books are more than likely to be lost in the crowd.
Love of Books Australia-wide™ has chosen a middle way between these two methods by giving every writer the chance to have their work evaluated first by way of a professional manuscript appraisal. We operate a two-stage selection process.
This puts the emphasis back on talent, and allows unknown – or forgotten – writers the opportunity to have their books edited and designed at a high standard.
Our marketing department will then assist promote high their books at free or little charge.
We are proud to have offered many first time authors the best possible start on their new career in the writing business. Our open submissions policy means that we can publish a broad range of books from a diverse set of authors.
