Simon & Schuster to publish top three manuscripts from Sobol Awards

Dec 06 2006

Simon & Schuster have announced that they will publish the top three manuscripts from the Sobol Awards as hardcovers under the Touchstone imprint.  Mark Gompertz, senior v-p and publisher of S&S's Touchstone/Fireside imprint, commented, "We were very impressed with Sobol's plans to harness the broad reach of the Internet and, through a very well-thought-out editorial process, find three great works of fiction." 

Sobol also announced that they have extended the deadline for entries until the end of March 2007 due to a sluggish response to the contest to date.  The first-place winner will receive $100,000 from Sobol and an advance against royalties from S&S; the second and third placers will receive $25,000 and $10,000, respectively, from Sobol and advances from the publisher.

He has only half learned the art of reading who has not added to it the more refined art of skipping and skimming.
