This is a wee gem of a book that has provided me with such great information. I’m currently in the process of completing a first draft of an idea and the thought of trying to get published always seemed like a mountain to climb. However, the information that Val presents breaks it down into great little components of knowledge and experience.
She talks about the traditional route of being published by the big houses like Harper Collins etc but also about the imprints of these houses and self publishing. I knew about getting beta readers as I am actually one for Simon McCleave but I wouldn’t have thought about getting a manuscript professional edited before submission. I thought that was a stage after you found a publisher. It’s tips like this that makes this book amazing. It contains so much great information but information that is invaluable.
It is definitely worth reading this book and what are you waiting for – let’s get that work of yours (and mine!) published!
