Overview

Going Pro: One Author's Advice on Getting Published with Small and Electronic Presses is a concise guide that offers advice on all aspects of writing for publication. From finding the time to write to finding beta readers, from navigating all the elements of a successful submissions packet to understanding a publishing contract to marketing your newly published book -- here I offer the best advice I can on getting your first story from a file on your computer to an e-book released by a small or electronic press.

Topics covered include: polishing your manuscript, finding the right publisher, working with an editor, writing blurbs, and promoting your book. I give detailed explanations of submission guidelines, contracts, rights and copyrights, cover art, and marketing plans. I also offer advice on what to do when things don't go quite as you plan, whether it's a bad review or a pirate site, or your publisher folds.

It can be intimidating when you're just starting out and trying to get published. I know, I've been there, too. So if you're interested in getting your stories published with a small press or e-book publisher, let me help you through the process!
