Tim Clare takes issue with G. P. Taylor...

Taylor:

The publishing world, frankly, is a cartel," opined GP Taylor, children's author and erstwhile self-publisher, "you can only get in there if you're in the know ... I and JK Rowling were discovered by accident. Most people are in the club, and it's a mafia."

Clare:

The truth is a disproportionate number of publishers are wide-eyed idealists with a frightening propensity for chucking good money after bad... The British publishing industry is crying out for a high-profile hothead to disabuse thousands of needy, bumbling timewasters of the notion that nascent masterpieces stir within their loins."

Highly recommended
