Notes and Discussion Questions:1: Discuss Luey
In "Choosing a Publisher," Luey recommends that you make a list of ten or twenty recent books in your field and look up the publishers. What do you find? Who are the leading publishers in your field? (If you are really interested, do the same thing for books published twenty years ago. What has changed in two decades?)
What do you learn from the description of the process that follows?
What can you learn from the list of questions typically asked of manuscript readers?
