"Welcome, Anne! I like that you add a "supernatural twist" to your suspense fiction. It sounds great! I'll be sure and look for you over on facebook. Best of luck with your published book and your new family :-)"
"Ah, got it! Yes, two different things, lol. Personally, I like having a "quote" on the cover versus my "own descriptive" tag line, but whatever is the most eye catching for you is always the ticket :-) "
"As long as the source is credible, in that the person/entity works/deals in the writing field and has something to show for it, it's fine. Windy City Reviews sounds totally credible to me. Are they a contest of some sort? Most…"
"Praise is a good thing, so tag lines can certainly add a little "somethin-somethin" to a cover. I have a book coming out March 21st and I used one line from a larger blurb I received from Pub Weekly via the…"

Christina. About Crescent Moon Press. I don't really know their marketing plan. There were lots of words about publicity, and it all sounded really good, but I'm so much out of it so I can't judge. About the contract - it's okay. Not very good for you, but with the first book you can't expect much. They don't pay advance, only royalties, but again, that's common for small presses. I tried to negotiate with them some points of the contract and came up against the wall: everything is non-negotiable. The contract is for 4 years, during which they have the right of first refusal for anything you write that is a sequel or takes place in the same universe. And they refused to talk about the timeline, when will they start working on the novel, when is the proposed launch, nothing. They said we'll talk about it after the contract is signed. But what worries me: after I signed the contract and sent it to them - silence. No emails. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have more questions, email me directly.
and welcome to the Publishing Industry News group! I look forward to sharing chat about the industry in this rapidly changing world. Do feel free to post on the wall or start discussion threads on any industry news you'd like to chat about with the group.
Christina, Welcome to the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday (now!); hope you can join us for that!
