From Book Publishing News:
“Writers have a new way to get book manuscripts in front of interested editors after the December 2007 launch of Creative Byline, Inc., a new web-based service. Specially developed software helps writers target editors and track responses. The same software lets editors communicate what kinds of manuscripts they’re looking for.
“It’s not uncommon for writers to wait for months to hear a response after they send a manuscript off to an editor,” says Creative Byline founder Brad MacLean. “And then what they often hear from that busy editor is just ‘no thanks.’ I had to believe that with technology and the internet, there could be a more satisfying experience.””
