Summary:
"Germano, a veteran editor with experience in both the university press and commercial worlds, knows his audience. This second edition will teach readers how to think about, describe, and pitch their manuscripts before they submit them.

In a new afterword, they'll also find helpful advice on what they can - and must - do to promote their work."
