Do You Love Your Publisher? A surveyHarry Bingham
Authors need publishers – but our experiences of the publishing process can be quite mixed.
What’s more, it’s oddly rare for publishers to ask authors, at the end of a particular publishing journey, “How did you find us? What did we do well? What could we have done better?” In my own (17 year, 15+ book) experience, I’ve never meaningfully been asked those questions by a publisher.
So we’re asking you. In conjunction with Jane Friedman in the US, we want to know everything about what authors think about their publishers.
If you are a traditionally published author, whether or not you have also self-published, we invite you to complete the survey that follows.
We have no agenda here aside from a genuine interest in knowing the answers. Your participation will be completely anonymous. We will announce the results in full when the survey closes in four weeks’ time.
And please: we think these questions are important and we solicit your help in spreading the word. Please tell your other author friends about this survey and encourage them to complete it. You can tweet this link – http://tiny.cc/2kmpux – which directs to this page. We’re using the #authorsay hashtag, so please feel free to use that too.
The survey follows. Thank you for participating! Harry Bingham
