    Speaking of punctuation problems, that Judith Briles piece is just peculiar. She seems particularly fond of ellipses, but sadly has not the faintest clue about how to use them. Even apart from that, the whole piece is in sore need of a good editing. This is not an encouraging sign in a post that pitches one of her books.

    But beyond that: She equates “traditional publishing” with New York publishers. This suggests a narrow understanding of the industry. Then there is the question of what sort of authors she has in mind. Is she speaking to writers of commercial genre fiction? Probably, but she never says that. Or does she think that all books of all sorts require one-size-fits-all advice? I will give her the benefit of the doubt and assume instead that she is merely a poor communicator.

    Nothing in this piece suggests that she is someone to look to for reliable advice.
