Interested in your Work!

Well the holidays are almost upon us! If you can take a break from shopping, wrapping, singing and baking, here is a small press market interested in your work:

Writer’s Exchange E-Publishing

A few words with Publisher, Sandy Cummins

1-- What are your needs (for submissions) at this time?

I desperately need romances (non-erotica), other than that, good
quality writing that we don't have to edit to death to make reasonable.

2--What do you not want to see?

Grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes. If you are a writer, know
your craft, if you don't know your craft, learn it first, then submit
to a publisher.

3--Any advice for new writers?

When you think you are done with a novel, leave it for a few months
then read it out loud to someone, that will turn up a lot of mistakes
and lack of flow. Then if that passed the test, get other writers to
look at it and ask for critiques.

4--Describe your ideal submitter.

Someone who has done the work to produce a polished manuscript - no
typos, no obvious bad grammar.

5-- Anything else you'd like to add?

We edit to make the work better, but we really want something good to
start with and prevent you being rejected straight up.
