Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lead author Atchity (founder, Atchity Entertainment International, Inc.; Writing Treatments That Sell), a former professor of comparative literature, delivers a thoroughly comprehensive guide to publishing fiction in today's market. While there are numerous reference books on publishing, this guide covers all the territory, from the basics to maintaining a successful writing career. The text is well organized into three parts: an overview of literary genres used to classify kinds of fiction and their prospective audiences, the nuts and bolts of acquiring a publisher and making the best deal, and advice on building a longstanding writing career. Atchity and his coauthors also offer guidance through the problem-solving stages when an author's efforts are not initially realized. Included here are examples of query and package presentations, as well as an in-depth look at typical publishing contracts. Throughout, there are additional text boxes, either with helpful "Words from a Pro," featuring successful authors and publishers, or with information on how "To Learn More About..." various genres and topics. The text closes with a helpful glossary as well as a resource list, annotated with advice on how to make the best use of each. Suggested for all libraries and all beginning authors.-Ann Schade, Edgewood Coll., Madison, WI. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
