DEALING WITH DELAYS AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT TO A PUBLISHER

It can be frustrating when you're waiting to hear about a manuscript that you submitted to a publisher. Editors working for the publisher will often hold a manuscript for up to a year or more before they print it; after they have accepted it. There are no hard fast rules about the waiting game.
How much time does it take for an editor to make a decision whether an editor has accepted your manuscript? Your  manuscript isn't the only decision facing an editor and some times manuscripts are lost, buried under a pile or are held up before being dismissively rejected.
You may have telephoned repeatedly or written several letters hoping for an answer.
Everyone is getting the same rotten treatment. This fact has become the norm. Sadly the editors display bad manners, broken promises and, according to the waiting authors, editors no longer regard writers as being worthy of niceness.
Here are some ways of dealing with delays:
1. Allow three or four weeks before you get furious. Due to cuts at the postal service, the mail   today is slow. Allow two and a half weeks for back in the mail and one week and a half on the editor's desk.
2. If you haven't received a reply, send a polite letter and a photocopy of your manuscript asking if the original was received.
3. If you do not receive a reply, write a letter stating that you would like to withdraw your manuscript and that you are going with another publisher. This may awaken him if he thinks that he may be missing out on a best seller.
4. Don't write or call him again. If he still doesn't reply, move on to another publisher. This one is not for you.
5. Always have a plan B for contactng more than one publisher with your manuscript.

They have raised fees for promoting other publisher's books on its website. They all have to come through Amazon.

DANG does have a niche market cornered, that of online books. But, in order to take the next step and grow into a fully-fledged "online shopping mall" the company must continue to spend heavily on marketing.
