The great thing about editing for a local E-publisher, and The Wild Rose Press in particular, is that they often attend local writers' functions. Rhonda Penders, Senior Editor of The Wild Rose Press, attended CNY Romance Writers' mini-conference recently, and she has now generously agreed to attend a chapter meeting on July 12th. If you're in the area, and considering joining CNYRW anyway, this is the time to dust off that manuscript and come to pitch it to a publisher! I will be there myself, as a liaison between the two organizations. I can help answer questions about either one, or show you around. Come visit us!
In other news, the small print press Tiger Publications will be closing its doors. See more about this at their website and at DearAuthor.com. Authors whose works are offered through this publisher should seek return of their rights before submitting to another publisher. It's always sad to see a publisher close, because it's hard on the writers who work so diligently on their manuscripts. Stay strong, everyone. I will keep my fingers crossed that your work finds new homes soon.
