I suppose I should have seen this coming, but I was surprised when my publisher told me catalogue copy (which looks similar to this) is due, and it has to be put to bed within two weeks.
I thought it would be good to have some blurbs for the sales catalogue, but I haven’t finished writing the book yet. Given that, how could I get blurbs within just two weeks? (Later on it should be a little easier to get some.)
I ended up asking three people who I thought might be generous enough to look at the almost-complete manuscript and offer a comment on an accelerated timeline. Stay tuned to see if blurbs come in over the next couple of weeks.
