Question #1: Should I call the editor on the phone?

Answer: Usually not. It’s better to use the normal established channels. The assignment editor is very busy and is often annoyed by phone calls.

If you do call, always ask the editor, “Is this a good time to speak with you?”

If not, ask when you can call back. Have your elevator speech prepared. Be able to give what, who, where, when, how and why it would interest their audience in 60 seconds or less.

I’ll have another answer to another question tomorrow.
