Been pedaling a manuscript called “The Gem Aficianado, and The New
Precio us Gems” for about a year and I have an excellent agent. Many
parts I ha ve already Published in magazines like Gems & Gemology,
Colored Stone, Ge mkey, etc. professional photos by Jeff Scovil. So
far 20 rejections. S eemed to me that a book of this type is needed
simply because there is no thing in pring that really covers
gemstones comprehensively from a qualit y standpoint. The publishers
say it doesn’t fit a niche.
Considering posting the whole manuscript to my website and working
with a n online publisher for people who want a hardcopy.
