    “Even for those writers, editors, and publishing professionals that have been in the biz for years, understanding all of the jargon of the industry can be a bit of a challenge. For those professionals who are just starting their careers, following a conversation or email pertaining to a publishing deal, editing contract, or even the materials required to put together a book proposal can seem like trying to decipher a foreign language…Truth be told, it’s a slow learning process, but with the help of Tracy Marchini’s new reference book you can speed the process up a bit.

    Pub Speak: A Writer’s Dictionary of Publishing Terms is a veritable catalogue of acronyms, technical words, and even common awards and associations that every writer, editor, publisher, and publicist of the English language should know.”
