Books make great gifts!
As we go into this holiday season with all the uncertainty in our industry and in the world, what we're saying at Sourcebooks is: BOOKS MAKE GREAT GIFTS!
They have a low price point, a high perceived value, and they're a personal, thoughtful gift. They convey the message, "I think you're intelligent!" and people LOVE books!
So, everyone, enjoy the holidays, and think about how your books, published and future, are a GIFT!!!
Ok, now about getting published...Now more than ever, editors are being careful to acquire what we feel confident will sell, so that "hook" gets more and more important.
What I'm looking for:
Single title romance fiction in all subgenres with:
*a heroine the reader can relate to
*a hero she can fall in love with
*a world gets created
*I can sell it in 2-3 sentences (in other words, it has a great hook!)
Questions? Bring 'em on!
