I just did a piece on this topic for Literary Manhattan which you can find there under the title “From Manuscript to Production”.

Literary Manhattan is a valuable resource for New York book lovers. Its mission statement reads “Literary Manhattan was formed to promote literacy and the benefits of reading and to bolster the general public’s awareness of Manhattan’s rich literary history.  We will accomplish this goal with our website, which contains literary information and resources, by conducting guided tours of areas of literary significance in Manhattan, by developing cutting edge resources for literacy programs, by sponsoring writing contests and scholarships, and by establishing a museum to house historical artifacts of Manhattan’s literary heritage.”
