It's Good to Be Gernert

Now, libraries on the other hand. They didn't include any of the subsidiary rights my agent sold audio, foreign, movie. Fill unsuspecting new authors' heads with antiquated bullshit and hope they aren't savvy enough to ferret out the truth and sign with you? It's a good and respected press that sells pretty well, but it takes close to a year to get work out. It was a different world. Not so, says Gernert, who took a secretarial position at Anchor soon after graduating from Brown and kept moving into bigger jobs for nine years. You don't see Hollywood dissing independent film makers.

Even the gatekeepers, anointed by supreme beings and tasked with the almighty power of ultimate decision, publish stuff that people hate. A clarion call advocating the importance of physicality. Much of the play-by-play, game results, and transaction information both shown and used to create certain data sets was obtained free of charge from and is copyrighted by. Theresa is also one of the founding members of The Indie Voice, a team of the savviest self-publishers out there. Hard work, struggle, disappointments, and perseverance are important. Why not speak out about how frustrating it is to see publishers drop the ball on books that should have been huge hits? After all, anyone with any degree of awareness understands that it's far too easy to tear-down anything, but far more difficult especially when even one amongst us works against the common-goal of the whole to build something of good.

Black House For David Gernert and Ralph Vicinanza

And yeah, the secret pen name did well last year. Mostly I just love a good read. I read all of Hemingway in one long burst, and I also read science fiction and popular fiction. Anything to help hasten better contract terms for authors would be a worthwhile project. I signed with Stephanie Tade who got me a 6-figure book deal with Penguin Books, which published my book in hardcover! Many of us are also self-publishing never-published books we couldn't find a publisher for.

You can also, at any time, post a question for me online. Or did you not want anyone to know who was making stupid comments? I'm sure horse drawn carriages were awesome for their time, but I wouldn't want to be caught in the middle of the 405 on one. We have this story — and it needs to be written. At the time, if you completed the program, they guaranteed that they would find a job for you. Thank you for visiting Publishers Weekly.

Now:an early Friday morning in mid-July a few years into both a new century and a new millennium,their way-ward courses so hidden that a blind man has a better chance of seeing what lies ahead than you or I. . Didn't include A-Pub either--I have five books Amazon has published. There are far more book discussions going on now, then there ever were in my local book store. You need to believe in your writing and your story and not wait for others to believe they can make a buck off of it. Let's start a movement to put on of these places in as many towns and cities as we can.

David Gernert's Phone Number, Email, Address, Public Records

I did it three years ago. We got into a huge argument and were really going at it. How is this a bad thing for authors? No one wants to be out of a job. Within 4 minutes of sending out my revised query letter, my literary agent called me on the phone. I'm going indie, because I already have multiple titles in a series that are stuck in limbo because of my small press. When I went to college there were no computers.

The Gernert Company

I remember over a decade ago how hard it was to sell a vampire romance or any kind of paranormal romance. Is it a King Kong sized hand? She's a really cool person. If they like the book, they will buy it. Thank you Joe for answering my question! They care about quality and price, and are able to find books they like without any gatekeepers other than each other and the increasingly adaptive ability for websites like Amazon to understand readers' tastes. I enjoy reading these kinds of personal histories because they provide a lot of insight into individual mindsets.

Anytime I hear about the serious impact to our culture the absence of bookstores would cause, I like to point out that culture consists of people, and they dictate the culture through their actions. But not publishing, oh no. Win Expectancy, Run Expectancy, and Leverage Index calculations provided by Tom Tango of , and co-author of. But that begs the question: why aren't every one of Gernert's clients bestsellers? I know which one I want. Joe: So much here to debunk here. Burnes, who started working for Gernert last month, is the mother of two young children and has a third on the way.

John Grisham's Literary Agent

I'm talking your books in English. Until then it's fun knowing we're living rent-free in their heads. As if that weren't enough, there are all those other people—editors, clients, employees and former employees—going on about what a nice, generous, all-around good guy Gernert is. Every author interested in making a living at writing should read it. On October 5th you reported less than six hundred grand. I love the control as do my clients. A lot of what is self-published is awful.
