The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published

You're no idiot, of course. You have brilliantly inventive ideas, been told you write well, and have read more than your share of best sellers. But when it comes to finding a publisher, you feel like your manuscript is buried at the bottom of a reject pile.

Publishing companies have consolidated, there are fewer editors, and literary agents are more selective. The result is that it's tougher than ever to get published. Now, a successful literary agent and author and a best-selling nonfiction author and literary consultant provide even more of the practical advice every writer needs to get published. In this new edition, readers will find:

  • An updated overview of changes in the publishing industry
  • Practical tips about pitch letters, negotiations, contracts, and industry trends
  • Includes CD-ROM with sample pitch letters, proposal templates, a comprehensive list of literary agents, links to fantastic author websites, and more
