INEXPERIENCE is the real first-time author's curse.
EDUCATION is the key to success for first-time authors.
Learning the publisher's perspective helps novice authors make much more effective publishing decisions. There are so many ways to approach the publishing business and most authors just don't know what they don't know until they start to search for answers.
This book will help you learn the goals of each type of editing, what makes an effective cover, where to find an illustrator, how to choose a publisher, what an ISBN is for, how to get a copyright, what the bookstores are looking for and much more.
