What do you wish publishers knew?

Speaking of Book Expo America, we're doing a little project with them. We're asking you, our readers, to answer the question "What do you wish publishers knew?" It could be about your reading habits, your library's purchasing system, or your bookstore's shelving algorithm. Then we're going to ask publishers "What do you wish your customers knew about you?" And we're going to make a comic out of some of the answers and publish it at our website and at BEA's.

So here's what I'd like you to do: email me with your answer to the question "What do you wish publishers knew?" along with a picture of yourself, your name, job title, and where you work. You can also choose to remain anonymous. By sending us this information you are allowing us to use your name, likeness, and quote in our comic. Don't worry, we'll be gentle. Deadline: February 16, but sooner is better.
