From the Author
One thing I learned early in the journey is that it's nearly impossible to find out the ins and outs of traditional publishing by yourself. I've learned the long and hard way. This book is my gift to you so you don't have to navigate the minefields I did.
This book isn't simply about getting published by a traditional publishing house, though. If you hope to self publish, the bulk of this book trains you how to be a better and more effective (and compelling) writer. If you're a blogger, a wanna-be ebook writer, or you'd like to have a big publishing house award you with a contract, this book will help you get there.
It's my hope that these 11 secrets will change you--not only the way you write, but how you view your profession and anticipate the future.
Another important note is this: This book is over 60,000 words, the size of a full length nonfiction book. You will certainly get your money's worth!
Writing with joy,
