Overview

How To Publish Your Book is a simple but lively guide that tells you exactly what you need to know about preparing and publishing your book, in both hard copy and the exciting new ebook format. Author Tom Graves, who has published two award-winning books through traditional publishing means as well as five well-received ebooks, tells aspiring authors precisely what they need to do to get through the gauntlet of publishers, literary agents, print-on-demand services, and ebook providers to get their book in print. With humor and warm wit, Graves also provides anecdotes and personal experiences that will help nudge authors through what is ordinarily a perilous process.

How To Publisher Your Book has short, to-the-point chapters on the importance of proper manuscript preparation, the good and bad of literary agents, resources every aspiring author needs, academic publishing, the ins and outs of ebook publication, and even a sample contract. In a quick but illuminating format, Graves gets to the nitty gritty and covers the bases you need and does it with a few good laughs and wild stories along the way. He completely avoids the excessive charts, graphs, and endless bullet points that often make such how-to books drudgery to read. By far the most readable and doable book publishing guide on the market from an author who has not only done it, but as he says is "still in it."

How To Publish Your Book is not only the best guide available for new authorsand by far the most readable, it is the most reasonably priced. Many readers feel it will set the new standard for guidebooks about writing and publishing.
