Every aspect of the publishing process is explored – from making the decision to publish and what will be required of you as an author, to all the processes required to get your book from a raw manuscript to a finished, sellable product – with professional advice and best practices provided along the way.
Equipped with the ‘insider knowledge’ that Publish Like a Pro offers, self-publishers will have a greater chance of making the right decisions and reaping the rewards and profits that self-publishing can offer.
This book aims to empower authors and subject specialists in the business of publishing, whether they choose to manage the process themselves or hand their book over to a professional service provider or publisher to publish on their behalf.
This book will also benefit authors who choose to go the traditional publishing route by guiding them in their manuscript preparation, offering a behind-the-scenes view of how publishing works, and explaining what will be required of them in the process.
