"There are literally tens of thousands of writers out there - and we have a responsibility to help them. We can't do that by paying a half million advance to every author." 

According to Barnard,repparttar books will appear inrepparttar 143781 main Pan Macmillan catalogue and would be "very posh books" with ribbon markers, sold at £15. He expected them to become "collectors' items". 

Scott Pack, of Waterstones, welcomesrepparttar 143782 initiative. "I think it's a fantastic idea," he said. "When books are presented to me by publishers they prioritiserepparttar 143783 ones to which they have given large advances. Butrepparttar 143784 bestsellers are not necessarilyrepparttar 143785 ones that have had big advances. This creates a level playing field." 

Pack believesrepparttar 143786 scheme could be great for spotting new talent, and points to examples of self-published books that found success not goingrepparttar 143787 route of conventional publishing.
