Submission To A Publisher #1

It’s early in the process, I know, but what I really need sometimes is a deadline – and there is no better way of getting a deadline than to have a publisher tell you: “If you want the book published I need it written by…”

So, with the introduction newly crafted (it’s just 2 pages – I can’t stand introductions that are like American movie trailers, the ones that go on for ages and show all the best bits so you think the rest of the movie / book contains even more good bits when it doesn’t) I have written to a publisher asking what they think of the idea of Underminers, attaching the Introduction and Chapter 1. I’ll keep you posted if anything comes of this, but won’t reveal any names until I have something signed, sealed and delivered.

In other news, another person I really admire has agreed to write an essay for the book. Like with Carolyn Baker, there was only one person who was right for Chapter 2, and I’m delighted to say that he said “yes”, albeit with a couple of reservations regarding methodology. To be fair, though, I don’t really know what the final methodologies will be like; it’s one thing putting things in a blog (The Unsuitablog) – another putting them into a book for more general consumption.

And I don’t want to go to jail yet.
