Matching authors with publishers
You may not know it, but publishers receive hundreds of unsolicited manuscripts every day. Many are good, and may be worth a read, but many are not. The review process is slow and resource-intensive. Publishers pay first reviewers, and hope to find a needle in a haystack. Would-be authors hope to get any sort of feedback, and often don’t hear anything for months and months. For writers, the process is frustrating, and feels like they’re throwing their baby into a black hole. For publishers, the process is costly and marginally effective. These two problems are what Creative Byline was created to solve.
We helped the web-based startup with a name, graphic identity, and website interface. Authors and publishers alike are singing the site’s praise as the process becomes more predictable, efficient, and effective.
