The Author's Toolkit: A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing and Publishing Your Book I found this book to be a valuable compendium of information for "budding" authors. It helped me become aware of facts,figures, and the realities of the literary field. This "Toolkit" describes an author's subject matter, style, grammar, and format. The book discusses LEGAL issues and protocol and alerted me to many caveats of seeking book editors, agents, and publishers. The aspect of marketing & sales is also a prominent part of this text. The "Toolkit..." is a macro view of "authoring". It presents information clearly and I learned much. I approach my book-writing endeavors with more practical and legal agility and continue more in-depth focus. I recommend this book most emphatically.

I really liked this book. It was very informative, I had originally borrowed it from the library, and had to get my own copy. It goes through a lot of the basics and even gives you some good books you can use to help you in writing. I recommend this for anyone who is series about writing. Also I like the size, I could take it anywhere if I wanted, it is slime enough to fit in purse. It really is concise and straight to the point.
