Coming to you late today since I actually took some time out to have lunch with a friend and uber-accomplished freelance travel journalism colleague (and a very good drummer by the way). Anyway, we got to talking about all the books I've been publishing both traditionally and under my imprint, Bear Media, and she mentioned she has three nonfiction MSs collecting dust. I told her to "just get them out there." But she demonstrated a desire to me to get at least one of them pub'd traditionally if possible. But first, she needs to find an agent...The time...Oh the time we waste when it's not necessary. But I totally understand her sentiments.
