Random Penguin is going to be a hefty bird indeed, when with all the changes going on in publishing it pays to be nimble.

Amazon is playing a long game, which means its business decisions tend to be shrewder than those of a big publisher who has to show a profit every quarter. It's not very bright, for instance, to sign inferior writers because they have a stellar agent. Perhaps if they focused on publishing the best books...no, I'm being naive, that'll never happen.

What is LMP? Not that I've got a manuscript to send, because my publisher gets first look at my next series book, but I don't remember that abbreviation from when I was sending out queries.


Would LOVE to submit to you. What does LMP stand for?

Yours sincerely,

OK, so the LMP stands for Literary Marketplace, a book that costs $300 on Amazon, which I sadly cannot afford. Is there a website?

If not, could you not give us the tiniest of clues? I love a mystery and am prepared to put in the hard work.
