Style Guide

Trade publishers and agents are overwhelmed with manuscripts, and they can afford to be extremely selective. If you are thinking of approaching an agent or a publisher with your manuscript, your work should be as clean as you can possibly make it. Check with the agent or publisher about their particular requirements. The Style Guide attached here might help with the basics of punctuation and presentation.

A Needful Caveat

In our office there is a Shelf of Shame. It contains books that should never have been printed. These works provide ample testimony to the fact that is very easy to produce a book without the need for any quality control. The people who produced these books put all sorts of energy, love and commitment into them, and it's really no fun assigning their work to the shelf. Please, read the attached essay and see if it helps you to give your work the value it deserves.
