Known as "the Wedding Writer," Kimberly Llewellyn has worked with four New York publishing houses over the years and is the award-winning author of eight contemporary novels. Berkley Books, part of Penguin Putnam, published her most recent traditional releases, two humorous comedic women's fiction novels in trade paperback.
Prior to these, she wrote three short contemporary romances for Avalon and Kensington and worked on nonfiction projects for Prentice Hall as a corporate writer for National Assessment Institute.
Her indie books include two best-selling novels, Siren Call (light paranormal romance) and Almost a Bride (contemporary romance). Her Heartthrob Heroes series is published by eBookDiscovery.
Ms. Llewellyn's how-to book offers advice on how to get into print, with advice for every aspect of the journey from sitting one's butt in the chair and getting that novel written, to tips on revision, and query letter writing, as well as where to look to find the most respected national writing groups (like the Romance Writers of America, or the Mystery Writers of America), to suggestions how to determine your genre, to the ever-pesky "mistakes" committed by novice writers and how to spot and avoid them, to other more intermediate subjects such as how to interpret a rejection letter--or a revision letter--and what it all means.
Sure there are a lot of writers' guides to choose from, but Kimberly's has the bonus that the author has worked on both sides of the writing front lines, in publishing houses and as a published author herself. Her perspective may help you, if you're just sticking your toes in the writing pond.
