An American editor shares her wisdom in an insider's approach to publishing processes for writers just getting started and those stalled in mid-career.

Publishers WeeklyInternational news website of book publishing and bookselling including business news, reviews, bestseller lists, commentaries http://www.publishersweekly.com/ said 'a quirky, informal, engaging guide'.
But our reviewer concluded that:‘If you’re looking for a book which will give you a blow-by-blow foolproof account of exactly what you need to do in order to attract an editor’s or agent’s attention and sell your book, this is probably not your best bet.’
