The struggle to get published

On The Guardian Books Blog, Jean Hannah Edelstein reports from a masterclass at The London Book Fair on 'How to get published'.
The masterclass might have been more accurately entitled, "You Will Probably Not Get Your Book Published: Writing Is More Difficult Than You Think and Publishing a Capricious, Cruel Industry (Unless You Pay Author House to Do It For You, Representatives of Our Kind Sponsor Are Standing By"). Or perhaps "Publishing: A Defensive, Crumbling Industry (We Hate E-books)". But I guess that's not a brilliant way to sell tickets.
