3 Book Submission Blunders!

rejection-stamp

1. A shoddily written submission letter.
Your submission letter is crucial. It is the first impression you will make to a publisher. One blunder at this point and the publisher will already be critiquing your skills as a writer.

2. A inadequately edited manuscript.
While publishers have editorial departments this is not an excuse for submitting a reprehensibly revised manuscript. Publishers aren’t interested in excavating through dung to find the brilliance buried somewhere within.

3. Not following submission guidelines.
Read submission guidelines prudently. Only submit work a publisher wants.
