Vicki Stringer does her thing, this book was very informative, and straight to the point. My self being a self-published author of a very successful book used this book as a blue print to not only establishing the foundation of my my company Bleeding Pen Publishing but to also market, promote, and distribute my debut novel "Crew Love". How to Succeed in the Publishing Game is a must get for all ambitious entrepenuers! Antwan Floyd, Author of Crew Love

When a friend of mine brought me this book, I was a little skeptical, but I decided to read it with an open mind. I kept thinking about the time and of course the M-O-N-E-Y. The authors walked through the process, while keeping it simple, and occasionally sprinkled a little humor into this dry subject. In the end, I recommend that writers read this book, because it gives other writers and myself another option.

As an aspiring author, let's face it--its tough to make ends meet. If you've ever tried to submit your work to a major publishing company, you'll understand what I mean. Stringer and McPherson's book offers a down-to-earth, step-by-step approach to self-publishing--which Stringer has proven to be a more than viable alternative to big publishing houses. If you want some real direction in your literary career, pick up this title.

This book was both real and funny. As a first time writer, it really enhanced my outlook on what it takes.
