What People are saying about this

Jacqueline Mitchard
"I learned more from this wise, witty primer of publishing than from fifteen years in the business. With everything you need to know—and some things you don't want to—in one place, this is the only pen-to-shelf guide you'll ever need."-- (Jacqueline Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean)
Roy Blount Jr.
"Stop! Don’t write another word until you’ve read this book."-- (Roy Blount Jr., author of Alphabet Juice)
Scott Turow
"This is THE book that every would-be author needs to own. It's full of incredibly practical advice about how to write and sell a book—finding an agent, writing a proposal, dealing with an editor, boosting sales—and on top of that, it's also probably the funniest thing ever written about how to get published. Write That Book Already is a gem."-- (Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent and the sequel, Innocent)
Amy Tan
"Write That Book Already! is the perfect companion to writer's angst, brimming with wise advice for all scribes, including myself."-- (Amy Tan, author of Saving Fish from Drowning)
Dave Barry
"We can only imagine how much more Tolstoy would have accomplished if only he'd had this book."-- (Dave Barry, author of I’ll Mature When I'm Dead)
