Are you an aspiring author who would like to know how to publish a book? Well you have come to the right place. Whether it's a paperback or e-book -- this is the ONLY BOOK you will need to make your dream of writing a book come true.

Writing a good book, compared to a bad one, involves one thing – work! No matter how you approach it, a great deal of time and commitment is required. Nevertheless, seeing a book through to completion need not be a grueling task. If you approach the process with a thought-out plan, it can actually be enjoyable.

There are many reasons that people would like to write a book -- what's yours? Defining why you would like to write a book is important on several levels. First, it helps you figure out how dedicated you will be to completing your writing project.

Your writing project can be a "short-term" or a "long-term" project. Many aspiring authors have started writing a book but were side-tracked because of unethical people who have led them down the wrong path in the publishing industry. This book will help you get back on track and make your dream of writing a book come true.

This book contains all the ins and outs of the writing and publishing industry. It was written for anyone who needs to know how the book industry works; Fiction and Nonfiction writers with a book concept who need to know next steps; Writers with finished novel manuscripts who are starting to consider submitting to editors and agents; Writers who are currently submitting their work and not getting the responses they expected or hoped for; and previously published authors who have been out of the game and need a refresher for the digital era.

Writing, as opposed to publishing, requires almost no financial or physical resources. A pen, paper and effort are all that has been required for hundreds of years. Whether you're allowing a traditional publisher to produce your book, or you're striking out on your own to self-publish, becoming an author can be a rewarding experience if you allow it to be. Good luck!
