Chase is an action verb meaning to pursue or go after something in various contexts; when applied to books and publishing, chase may mean many different things.
An author seeking publication seeks a publisher by sending query letters that directly inquire whether or not that company would like to read their manuscript.
Publishers who pursue authors usually do so because they want their book and want the author to sign an exclusive publishing contract, often by offering an advance. An advance is money paid directly to an author before their book goes to print, protecting in case the book doesn’t sell well when published.
Chase can also be used as a noun, meaning the act of pursuing something; in book publishing terms, this refers to author chase – an author trying to publish their book or vice versa! ; while publishers seek authors as contract signees.
