The cost? $149.
For that, you get listed in something I doubt anyone is going to read.
But wait, there’s more. “At least 25 of the submitted titles will be selected for a published review.” And “The entire PW editorial staff will participate in a review of the titles being considered for review, and we'll likely invite a few agent friends and distributors to have a look at what we've chosen. No promises there, just letting some publishing friends take advantage of the opportunity to see the collection.”
I really wish they wouldn’t dangle these carrots. How many people will do this hoping for a review, an agent, a real book deal?
