    I bought this after writing my first official novel in 2006. This is a very helpful tool to those who already have a good grasp on English and grammar. I knew nothing about publishing, so this book helped me write query letters, synopsis and more. I got my first contract from one of the publishers listed in the back. now have over 40 published novels and my first self-published novel on its way. I'd recommend this book to anyone starting out looking for complete a novel. There are a lot of great tips on writing, but most of what you need to know, you'll learn from a publisher as they all have house rules and different methods. Good luck! It's definitely worth the money and laid out very nice, easy to read and understand.

    Great reference book for writing!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book because it takes you through the step-by-step process, gives you terms you need to know when writing, and also delves a little in the publishing phase--a little. I liked it so much I bought 'The Everything Get Published Book'.
