Rachel Singer Gordon kicked off the free CyberTours in the Exhibit area this mooring with a presentation aimed at prospective authors, either of books or articles. Her primary focus was how to approach a publisher such as Information Today Inc, with an idea. Every editor is going to be a little bit different in how they approach both the initial query stage and the actual editing of a finished manuscript. I learned that we editors should probably be more approachable, judging from the audience reaction to Rachel’s talk. I sure hope that anyone with an idea for ONLINE calls or emails me about it, but after they’ve looked at the magazine’s Web site, particularly the author guidelines.
