Hi Mr. Santamaria,

This statement is patently untrue. Publishing companies--real, legitimate ones who pay advances and put books on bookstore shelves--publish new authors every day. They're not "taking a chance" on anything; they see a book they think is good and will sell, and they pay the author for the right to publish it. Period.

Happens all the time. Happened to many of us on this board, including me.
