This is just a tired, late-night musing for now, but I'm just wondering if it's any harder for a Brit to get a book published in the US? Or does the postal system and the internet make this less of an issue? (I'm about to start a PhD in American History (I will be based in Britain although I will make a few trips to New England over the next 3 years) and so I am very much in an American historical novel mindset right now.) Is it worth writing a book that will appeal almost entirely to Americans, or would it be better to, say, try and get published in the UK first before trying across the Pond? Anyone got any idea?
