Posted in: RWA Loves E-publishers Like A Fat Kid Loves Lettuce
Now this is interesting. I saw this letter over at Bitch Envy’s blog. It’s from a columnist with the Romance Writer’s Report.
THE RWR editors will not allow me to interview small presses editors even though their publishing house is “recognized” by RWA. I am only allowed to interview New York publishers.
This is not my decision…obviously since I asked you for an interview…but a decision the RWR editors absolutely insisted I adhere to.
I made several cases on the behalf of the smaller publishers…such as small presses are buying new authors and many New York editors shop the smaller presses when acquiring new talent…but got nowhere.
I am extremely sorry about. I do not understand this decision at all and do not agree with it one bit. However, I am not the editor of the RWR.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
Does “small presses” really mean e-publishers? Interesting.
