Publishing Confidential, The Insider's Guide to What It Really Takes to Land a Nonfiction Book Deal

By Brown, Paul B. & Britton Payne & John A. Byrne

AMACOM. Very Good. 2004. First Edition. Softcover. 0814472265 . Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light scuffing to covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Who among us hasn't harbored a hidden--and, perhaps, not-so-secret--dream of publishing a book? Expanding a 20-page memo originally published in Inc. Magazine, Brown, with major credentials as a magazine editor (including Forbes and Inc. ) and an author (among his book titles is Customers for Life, 1990) , sets out to help us realize that desire. What he imparts is common sense. His three-step process to finding an agent starts with identifying the books with concepts close to yours, reading the acknowledgments, then contacting that agent. The list of questions to ask your editor begins with a query about the intended marketing plans. How he writes is pure entertainment, complete with editorial sidebars (courtesy of Ellen Kadin, acquisitions editor at AMACOM) , footnotes packed with laugh-out-loud information, and occasional illustrations that perk up the well-written text. Barbara Jacobs. (350osl, 0811) .
