Talk tomorrow,



  1. Sounds good.


  2. Sorry if this is dumb, but what is commercial and upmarket fiction?


  3. Juialoha,

    That is not a dumb question. Upmarket fiction refers to books that appeal to both literary and commercial audiences. They are books that have excellent writing along with a story line that appeals to a mainstream market.

    Hope that helps.
