Read the passage and answer the following questions.
Care should be taken when submitting manuscripts to book publishers. A suitable publisher should be chosen, by a study of his list of publications or an examination in the bookshops of the type of books in which he specializes. It is a waste of time and money to send the typescript of a novel to a publisher who publishes no fiction, or poetry to one who publishes no verse, though all too often this is done.
A preliminary letter is appreciated by most publishers, and this should outline the nature and extent of the typescript and enquire whether the publisher would be prepared to read it (writers have been known to send out such letters of inquiry in duplicated form, an approach not calculated to stimulate a publisher’s interest).
It is desirable to enclose the cost of return postage when submitting the typescript and finally it must be understood that although every reasonable care is taken of material in the Publishers’ possession, responsibility cannot be accepted for any loss or damage thereto.
Authors are strongly advised not to pay for the publication of their work. If an MS is worth publishing, a reputable publisher will undertake its publication at his own expense, except possibly for works of an academic nature. In this connection, attention is called to the paragraphs on Self-publishing and vanity publishing, at the end of this section.
