Ted Kluck is the author of many books, on topics ranging from Mike Tyson to the Emergent Church. Both Why We’re Not Emergent and Why We Love the Church (with Kevin DeYoung) won Christianity Today Book of the Year awards, and Paper Tiger: One Athlete’s Journey to the Underbelly of Pro Football won a Michigan Notable Book award in 2008. His work has also appeared in ESPN the Magazine and Christianity Today. Ted has played professional indoor football, coached high school football, trained as a professional wrestler, served as a missionary. He is assistant professor in the Department of Communication Arts of Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, where he lives with his wife, Kristin, and their sons, Tristan and Maxim. Called “the suspense author everyone is talking about” by Family Fiction Edge magazine, Zachary Bartels is the author of critically acclaimed supernatural thrillers. An award-winning preacher and Bible teacher, Zachary is the pastor of Judson Baptist Church in Lansing, Michigan. His debut novel, Playing Saint, has been called an “intrigue-filled thriller” by Library Journal and his newest book, The Last Con “will leave readers stunned,” according to RT Book Reviews. He lives in the capital city of a boxing-glove-shaped Midwestern state with his wife, Erin, and their son, Calvin.

Top Customer Reviews
1.) Traditional and Indie publishing each have their benefits and hassles. Don't arrogantly throw one or the other out with the bath water.
2.) Erin B. contributes a chapter in which her personal publishing story encourages writers to be insanely patient, wisely humble, and unafraid to leave a manuscript (that just didn't work out) behind in order to write something better and more refined.
3.) Authors don't get a nickel from a used book sale. And you - the buyer of a used book - will likely get someone else's feces on your hands.
4.) The back cover of the book makes the front cover make
(This review was hastily edited by my 6-years old daughter just before I mashed the "Submit!" button. Any errors are hers' to bare.}
Now, if you are a better writer than I ever will be but have not yet had your book published, I am certain that you will benefit from the insights provided in this entertaining and informative book by Gut Check Press. The book (which was published) includes technical tips and tricks to ensure that whatever publication route you choose, your masterpiece will fare better than most. This book gave me an affordable, practical education on on what it takes to become a published author. So, when I decide to self-publish my autobiography, I now know how to make my book not suck as much as the story of my life (which really isn’t as bad as my attempted English major career).
Yes. I understand that if you’ve read this far, you probably hate me. That’s OK. You won’t hate Kluck and Bartels or the other contributors to this work. Buy it for yourself, for a friend, or an English major whom you know. Don't let them fail like I did. This book may save their career or their life. Literally.
