I just heard about a Publishers Weekly Review for an upcoming book I'm in, "Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey." The book was edited by Literary Agent and Editor, Lori Perkins, with whom I've worked closely before. She's very demanding, and yet very articulate. I prefer working with editors like that...no nonsense. She balances that out by being just as nice.
I'd also like to say that I've enjoyed working with the people at Bella Books. I've worked with a lot of publishers over the years and I know the drill. But this time, with Bella Books, I've been amazed at the thorough process of getting the book out, from start to finish. When I submit to most anthologies I really never know much about the book until the day it's released...sometimes not until I get the check and the free copies. This time I've been kept up to date on everything.
Here's part of the review:
In this fascinating examination of E.L. James’s Fifty Shades trilogy, edited by
literary agent Perkins, 50 writers—including erotica and erotic romance authors,
a matrimonial lawyer, an English professor, and BDSM practitioners—analyze the
novel’s game-changing effect on the publishing world. Divided into seven
sections—writing, romance, erotic fiction, sex, BDSM, fan fiction, and pop
culture, along with a hilarious parody of the story in an “intermission” and an
appendix with a suggested reading list—the book thoughtfully dissects the
various aspects of the bestseller.
