Tip #7: Learn From The Experts
By: Stephanie S. Smith, Inside Pages Managing Editor
This post is for aspiring authors more than publishing professionals per se, but will show you the inside publishing process which is necessary to know whether you are on the writing or publishing side of the coin.
If you want to be a published author, learn from those who’ve already walked the path! Be a student of the experts. Here are three e-Books available for a small fee that will show three varying perspectives and stories on breaking into publishing:
The 11 Secrets of Getting Published by Mary DeMuth, author of 11 books who gives the grand tour of “the twists and turns of the publishing industry.”
A Path to Publishing: What I Learned by Publishing a Nonfiction Book by Ed Cyzewski offers “a big-picture guide for nonfiction publishing hopefuls.”
Writing a Winning Book Proposal by Michael Hyatt (Chairman of Thomas Nelson) is available for e-Book purchase in two versions: one for fiction and one for non-fiction. Take it from someone who’s been in the business for decades.
