Overview

This is a 54-page manual which serves two distinct purposes. First, it's a "tell all" that is essential for first-time authors who need to know how to get their book published, and second, what published authors want to know who are dissatisfied with their past book publishing experience. This manual focuses on fiction books; however, the steps for getting a non-fiction book published are virtually the same, and the differences are noted, where applicable.

Upon completion of this manual, you will have gained insight into the book publishing business - traditional and self-publishing; recognizing the best option for publishing your book, and know how to get it published.
The first part of this manual explains in detail "How To" publish your book by traditional methods, including what documents are required, examples of those documents, how you are paid, and questions to ask before signing a contract. The second part is a "How To" self-publish a print book and ebook, at little or no cost to you, and understanding why ebooks are so popular.
In addition, you will learn the proven easy 3-step process to self-publishing - from manuscript to beautifully published ebook available at online retail sites - in just five days - with no experience necessary. If you are technically challenged, the author provides actual names and email addresses for the experts who assisted her. Furthermore, you will learn "How To" do-it-yourself for free, where to find support from published authors, tips for marketing your book on a budget - what is free and what cost money, and "How To" make your book successful.
Topics covered: Is Your Book Unique?, The Query Letter, The Synopsis, The Proposal, Finding an Agent, The Book Editor, The Publisher's Contract, Indie Self-publishing - Print books and Ebooks, Traditional Publishing vs. Indie Self-Publishing, and Tips For Self-Marketing Your Ebook, just to name a few.

Note: Due to the popularity of touchscreen electronic devices, and this manual is an ebook, I have intentionally omitted "linked" websites. Instead, I have provided the web addresses to notable sites discussed in this manual for you to copy and paste into your browser.

Meet the Author

Find out why Trained To Kill - A Detective Oliver Rousseau Novel is garnering 4 and 5 Star reviews at Amazon.As an avid reader I like series novels. I like the fact I can follow the characters as they progress and develop book after book. I have purchased many such novels and I understand the writer's determination to keep writing them as long as they sell. But I believe there comes a time when the material gets stale, or the characters become so twisted we have to say goodbye to those that have become favorites and start fresh elsewhere. As a new writer, I hope to recognize that and not continue down a path that leads to reviewers writing, "Huh? What's she doing to that character?", "Stop demoralizing that character!" or worse, "I'm not buying any more of your books."I also believe novels should be entertaining. The Detective Oliver Rousseau series is not intended to be government spy novels, but I have introduced Oliver's past government training in Trained To Kill to expand the storyline in future books. This series is not hardcore espionage; no more than writing psychics into the storyline make it a paranormal novel, although I may expand on that in the future.The Detective Oliver Rousseau series is intended to be fun, entertaining crime fiction, with action and suspense, for men and women of all ages. And don't be surprised to find me writing in genres other than crime fiction in the future.I live in Houston, Texas with my husband and I am working on my next novel.
