Alessandro Gallenzi on Bestseller...

Why should a publisher take up a pen and write a novel? Aren’t there enough writers already? Every week I receive dozens of submissions by post, by email, even by phone, from aspiring authors the world over – full-length novels about vampires, werewolves or aliens, turgid historical romances, war memoirs, family stories of loss and grief, crime capers, gory thrillers, teenage romps, experimental tales and collections of haikus. Yesterday I even received a blank diary with a short note on the first page written by a girlish hand in glittery ink: “Fill this book with Love”. Click here to read the full article.
