Julia Serebrinsky Needs a Hook


This editor writes: "It's a good collection, but I am not sure there is a hook to make it stand out in the challenging marketplace. I do hope someone else takes a plunge though." Clearly, it's not enough that the stories are linked by groups of characters, so I think I'm going to go back and make them all blind. (And then they sit around and wonder why a talented writer like Laura Alberts resorted to submitting a manuscript "written" by a teenage cross-dressing street hustler.)
