    Susan Page's Advice is Great!!

    I loved this book. This book not only gave me great information, but encouraged me to continue writing even when I received rejections. I now have a published book and owe gratitude to Ms. Page for her attention to the writers' spirit as well as the nuts and bolts of the publishing world.

    Waste of time

    Self publishing desk top and first book on e book etc in our part of the country is so common what with three colleges twenty miles away. Of course you have to get friends to sell your books in their store or cafe and do signings at sr.center and maybe the local vfw and give free ones to local library and va hospital but most writers can afford a short run what is hard to find is an old fashion manuscript or thesis typist for the computer innept they even have home perfect binders now or do a neat spiral bound at your local office max
