Jump to Services This survey has no authority other than my own ornery wish to help aspiring writers make progress; I'm really a writer, not a surveyor. I am Piers Anthony, known primarily for my Xanth fantasy series, though I also do serious writing. I've had a good deal of experience in the publishing school of hard knocks, hence my interest in making it easier for others.

Updates directly from publishers are welcome, and so are comments about those publishers from those who use them. I have no agenda other than reasonable clarity, accuracy and relevance. I take publishers' claims on faith until learning otherwise; then I tell truth without much concern for consequences.

I do not check with publishers before running positive or negative feedback on them; this survey is of the nature of a review, and anonymity of sources is maintained. If I may summarize the general gist of publisher responses to bad reviews, it is "You're a liar!

I've seen publishers state that if their particular formats are not followed to the letter, submissions will be deleted unread. My inclination is to do it my way, which was good enough for traditional publishers for 40 years, or moderately adapted for electronic format, and any electronic publisher who objects can do without my business.

Let the publisher change the format to please itself. If someone cares to offer a standardized format, I'll be happy to run it here.

Then maybe publishers will start saying "Standardized Format Accepted" and the problem will fade as uncooperative publishers stop receiving submissions.

I understand they are now defunct. The site now requires a password for access. That would be weird for anyone trying to buy and sell books. Material is mostly adult, but no under sex, no animals or killing, but rape, torture, and incest are allowable.
