*** Pat Valdata replies to Ken Jensen:

Ned, please forward this to Ken.

Ken, if you want to go the traditional publishing route, you do need to get an agent. There are print and online guides to agents that list agents by specialty. Find agents who deal with your genre and who have placed books that you like. Follow their instructions for what to include with your query letter.

Alternatively, you can self-publish using one of the many companies that do print-on-demand publishing, and market the book yourself.

You should also locate writers’ groups and organizations in your area, as well as writers’ conferences, which are great for networking and learning about the book trade.

Best wishes,

Pat

*** Ken replies:

Pat,

Thanks for the insight. Everything I've learned agrees with your advice. I am currently researching agents, but the research seems to indicate that many agents want unpublished authors to be recommended by someone they know and trust. Can't say I blames them for that but it sure makes it harder to break through.

Thanks. (And thanks to Ned for forwarding your note.)

Ken Jensen

*** Ken Jensen's request for what to do next

Hi Ned,

Ken Jensen asked what to do next with his mystery novel manuscript.

Based on my many years' of experience in the publishing biz, here's how

to proceed.

1. Have the ms. professionally edited. You can find a skilled freelance editor through the Editorial Freelancers Association, www.the-efa.org. In publishing today, authors can't expect any editorial help from agents or editors–they're not interested in shaping your diamond in the rough. Get your ms. into the best possible shape before submitting.

2. Publishers very rarely accept unsolicited or unagented mss. Don't even try.

3. Find an agent who specializes in mysteries and thrillers. To do this, check Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents 2010. Read the introductory material carefully–it explains the best ways to approach agents, how the publishing process works, and so on.

4. Before submitting to an agent, check the website. Be sure the agent is still accepting unsolicited mss. If yes, submit your ms. exactly as requested.

5. Be realistic. The odds of publication are low and the odds making any real money are even lower.

all best

*** Strategic Communication Management Summit 2010

October 5–7, Waterview Conference Center, Washington DC

A new city, a new format and a new focus for internal communicators:

• Real-life case studies from world-class organizations that demonstrate the remarkable results that can be achieved

• Facilitated discussions and action-planning sessions: digest what you've heard and plan how you can apply it to your own situation

• Inspiring keynote sessions to bring a forward-looking approach to your work, department and career

• Valuable interactions with a notable group of colleagues and faculty around the challenges that you're facing

Visit www.melcrum.com/ussummit for full program details and information on how to book.

*** Sage advice:

Hi, Ned – A couple of thoughts and words of advice to folks who are seeking employment and applying for jobs, whether online or by the old traditional Pony Express method. Might be helpful for your 11,615 subscribers (and the untold numbers who receive it as a pass-along!).

1. Take the time to tailor your letter of introduction. This shows respect for the position for which you are applying and the institution that may well become your employer.

2. Do not send a generic mass email to 20 companies who are seeking to fill 20 different kinds of positions. If I care enough to search for the perfect candidate, I want a job seeker to care enough to take the time to focus on my company and the open position.

3. If you’re sending a generic mass email to 20 companies, at least put their addresses in the “Bcc” line. Better yet, refer to #2.

4. How you address me and communicate with me tells me how you are going to address our constituents and public.

5. Please follow directions. You are a communicator, but I want a comprehender, too.

Thanks.
