Bruce Nichols is the SVP and Publisher of General Interest titles for HMH. Over on HMH's blog, The Spark, he answered some questions about getting your story out there and noticed by people like him, people who "read an average of 200–300 manuscript pages every night."
How do you grab the attention of someone like that, someone who reads a book a night? "The voice is the very first thing I notice," says Bruce. "I want to hear an original and authentic voice. I want to read something that propels me to turn the pages."
Here at Heinemann, we have a number of titles to help you with both your students' and your own writing, so you can all share your stories with an authentic audience
