when talking about publishing. Every profession has its own vocabulary and terms. If you're a newbie to the publishing world (and who isn't in this day and age with eBooks on the rise), then this book is for you. It covers the alphabet soup (acronyms) of terms and vocabulary used in the publishing, writing, editing, marketing universe. After reading this, you'll be able to sit at the grown-up table!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Pub Speak is the perfect handbook for those who need to navigate the publishing business. Whether you are a new author or just someone who wants to understand publishing, this dictionary is a great source for terms used in the industry. A-Z - So much is covered that it is difficult to describe. There are agency terms, contract and royalty terms, e-book information, book publishers and sellers, publishing terms, websites and social networking, abbreviations, and character terms. Although I would highly recommend Pub Speak for authors, I also think this book is of interest for book reviewers, bloggers, and readers. There is information on voice, characters and fiction terms that will help reviewers. Many authors now are self-publishing and Pub Speaks is a great resource for learning the essentials.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
