Something Nasty in the Slushpile by Sammy Looker



ISBN: 9781472111029 Category: Tags: ,


Most publishers keep a ‘slushpile’ – the stack of unsolicited manuscripts which contains a large percentage of preposterous or frightening book proposals, which might just conceal that one jewel of a bestseller or classic novel lying near the bottom. Authors discovered via the slush pile include Roddy Doyle, J.K. Rowling and Philip Roth. Written by a reader with over a decade of slush pile experience, this text takes a tour through the ‘do’s and ‘don’t’s of book proposal, including many examples of hilarious, misguided and plain weird approaches.
