Molto utile, anche se breve. Le risposte alle domande sono chiare e ben pensate...per di più è un libro gratuito!

There are many things included here, things that any newbie or professional writer would want to know? Eg. If my book tanks, should I get another publisher? Should I finish my first book first or look for an agent? Read if you need to get a handle on the basics, or just because you want to know a little more about the business of writing...

One of my most trusted experts in publishing advice for new authors. I will faithfully read everything he writes.
