I visited the Putnam/Prime Crime editor for our client "B. B. Haywood" (pen name) on Monday in NYC. We talked of many things, including Bowker's new program. Her comment: "Are they going to PAY editors to view the manuscripts?" (I don't think so. I think they are expecting editors and agents to visit the site on their own steam.)
Of course we discussed Haywood's forthcoming second book in the Candy Holliday series, Town in a Lobster Stew. It will be published in February. Here's the new book cover. I'm especially thrilled to see "National Bestselling Series" over the title!
