Product Description

Review

Praise for the First Edition of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published (Previously published as Putting Your Passion Into Print) A must-have for every aspiring writer . . . Thorough, forthright, quite entertaining. Khaled Hosseini, bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns (Riverhead) Before you write your own book, read this one. Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry understand the process of publishing their advice will help you envision and frame your work so that publishers will be more likely to perceive its value. Jonathan Karp, publisher, Simon Schuster I had no idea that the code of publishing would be as hard to decipher as the secret language of adolescent girls. If only I had Putting Your Passion into Print when I started writing! Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabees, the book that inspired the movie Mean Girls (Three Rivers) Putting Your Passion Into Print changed my life. I read and reread each of your chapters, lived by your organizational and promotional advice, and, despite all odds, my rather uncategorizable book is a success.With no track record or cash, we ve gotten onto TV and into national print media, been blurbed by the LA Times and the Village Voice, and sold out a third of our print run within three weeks of launch. Molly Crabapple, author of Dr. Sketchy s Official Rainy Day Colouring Book (Sepuculture Books) I started with nothing but an idea, and then I bought this book. Soon I had an A-list agent, a near six-figure advance, and multiple TV deals in the works. Buy it and memorize it. This little tome is the quiet secret of rockstar authors. Timothy Ferriss, bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek (Crown) Putting Your Passion into Printhas been absolutely invaluable through this whole process!It s on my bedside, with dozens of post-its peeking out! Veronica Wolff, author of Master of the Highlands Series (Berkley) Arielle and David did a masterful job at deconstructing our complicated, often irrational industry. Putting Your Passion into Print is fun to read and brutally honest, but it s also energizing and inspiring. Lynn Goldberg, CEO, Goldberg McDuffie Communications I curled up in a big chair and read Putting Your Passion into Print like a novel. Written with insight and humor, it takes us through the writing process from idea to sequel. I wish I had a book this thorough and thoughtful and downright indispensable for every aspect of my life. Karen Cushman, author of the Newbury Award winner The Midwife s Apprentice and Newbury Award runner-up Catherine, Called Birdy (HarperCollins) This is a terrific book. It s practical, it s fun to read, and it totally demystifies the publishing process. Whether you are just setting out to write a book, or already have several published books under your belt, you will find this an invaluable resource. There is no doubt in my mind that it will become a standard of the industry, sitting right alongsid --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I learned about this book when I entered Pitchapalooza, a pitch-writing competition for aspiring novelists. Sterry and Eckstut, a married couple dubbed The Book Doctors, pack a wealth of information into this tome. The duo comes with impressive writing, publishing and entrepreneurial experience. Confession: I thought it might be textbook reading but it isn't. The book reads like a novel with sidebars of author success stories, tips and writerly quotes. It's like taking a course in publishing with engaging instructors who want you to succeed. Prepare to change your thinking--the publishing world has undergone a paradigm shift. An everyday Joe like me can publish a book as long as it is unique and well-written--and I get it out there into the world. I can promote it and network in my jammies once I get well-versed in the social media. My favourite parts of the book? Learning how to write an elevator ride pitch, landing the right agent and getting the word out. You will read this book backwards and forwards.
