What Do Publishers Want? LIke the silly and reductive question, "What Do Women Want" (Mel Gibson movie being silly and reductive, too), this is a question that has as many answers are there are publishers. But that doesn't stop writers and agents from asking it, and hoping to understand better. In this hour, two of publishing's most talented and visionary women, Barbara Jones, Editorial Director of Hyperion Books and Voice, and Dawn Davis, VP and Editorial Director of Amistad, an imprint at Harper Collins, will do their best to explain what they want, or at least what they love, when searching for books to publish.
