An Author's Guide to Publishing

Michael Legat’s most successful book is an essential introductory guide to publishing, which is particularly useful for unpublished writers.  It presents an insider’s view of the world of publishing, covering the publisher’s market, how to submit your work to a publisher, what publishers are looking for and the publishing process.  The author goes on to cover contracts, author/publisher relationships, legal matters and the rewards of writing.

This is the most practical general book available for writers and provides an excellent introduction to the often mystifying world of publishing.  It is recommended by the Society of Authors.
