Nose in a Book Publishing is my business name because I think saying someone has their nose in a book is a great compliment. I love to read and don’t really care if it’s a paper book, eBook, newspaper, blog, travel brochure, back of a ​cereal box or whatever. I like to immerse myself in ​words and I hope you do, too.​

Jennifer Phillips, Author

It’s "Submission Summertime" for me. I’m on pause from new writing projects right now while I submit several just finished or revised pieces to various publishers. It’s a weird, unsettling period when you’ve got work going out and you’re waiting for responses to come in. But I use it to tidy up my files, my process and my brain before launching into new ideas. 

Wish me luck!
