This is a discussion on "raw manuscripts" in the Publishing forum.
"With age came wisdom. Sometimes wisdom came with an ass kicking, too. And nothing could kick ass like the whole world." -The character "Horn" ruminating on his circumstances. The Decaying Mansions of Memory, by Jay Lake.
You, too, can get a copy of Lorelei and the Lost and Found Monster from Amazon.com.
There's always that one old guy who smokes a cigar a day, drinks half a bottle of whiskey by noon, eats nothing but bacon, red meat, and lard, and lives to be 98. Which means you'll probably run across someone who sends in a raw manuscript that's so effing brilliant he or she gets signed and makes a million dollars. And someone will read about that person and decide "well, that's the way to do it then."
And will then die of a heart attack because he's been doing nothing but smoking cigars, drinking whiskey, and eating bacon, red meat, and lard.
