I have had an idea for a book for several months but I couldn't get it off my mind. I didn't know how to go about preparing the manuscript or submitting it to a publisher.
Oscar Collier and Frances Spatz Leighton's 'How to write and sell your First Nonfiction' book made a lot of difference for me, and took the pains to carry the reader step by step through all the phases.
I would never have stepped out into the print world without the common sense guidance I was able to take advantage of from this book. I highly recommend this delightful book - its so positive and encouraging as well as giving you all the tools you need to actually publish your first book! Its fun reading and the absolute best 'how to' book I have ever read.
