    One thought on “Don't Sabotage Your Submission”

    1. I met Chris at a NCWN Conf and as a result became a member of SIC. Chris has put her 40 years of experience into a pithy exposé of what it takes to avoid being consigned to the slush pile. This is a quick concise must read explaining how to send a read worthy manuscript to an agent and getting past the vetting process in publishing.

    2. An editor and slush pile reader explains the mistakes that can get a manuscript rejected and tells how to avoid them.

    3. I am grateful for Chris Roerden's knowledge shared in this book. It presents dozens of insights that have guided me in my writing. My understand of the craft is stronger, as well as my belief in my ability to write a worth while story. Many thanks Chris!
