*** Advance Copies of New Edition for Subscribers Only ***

Advance copies of the upcoming 2005 edition of our book are
now available exclusively to subscribers from Books Just Books,
with public release to follow in January.  As an additional
gesture of appreciation to newsletter subscribers, those who
place advance orders will get a substantial discount and a free
copy of "Publishing Basics."


*** Hold Free Books Until January ***

Co-author Dan Poynter reminds us to be careful about sending out
review copies in November and December.  This is due to reports
that some unethical "reviewers" may use them for holiday gifts!

It is fine, however, to send galley proofs for possible review,
as well as copies to members of the working press.

At this time of year, books in production should use a 2005
copyright and publication date, rather than 2004.  This avoids
a situation where a book looks like "last year's news" in early
2005 when it is actually fresh.


*** Pledge for Ethical Business ***

Shel Horowitz wants 25,000 people to endorse and spread
