Sisters in Crime Publishers’ Summit

Some members of the Sisters in Crime visited Harper Collins, agent Simon Lipskar of Writers House, Penguin, and Soho Press on their Publisher’s Summit (See their first installment/second installment).

They report (according to the folks they met) the hot genre is the thriller, “positioning” the story is key, writers need to write lots (more than one book a year, blog everywhere), authors need a “strong Internet presence,” and remember that publishing is a business.

It’s a fascinating read for someone like me, interested in what it takes to get published and what it means once you’re published.
