People have been telling me for years that I could get paid for what I write. I dont have enough material or confidence to approach an agent. This book will allow me to submit on my own and see if all those encouraging people actually know good writing or just love me. Read full review

User Review  - DistortedSmile - LibraryThing

This book was absolutely priceless when it came time to find a publisher willing to print some of my work. It gives detailed information about each publisher, what they look for, what you should have prepared and where to send it. There's something for everyone. Read full review
