Summary
Everyone has a book in them, they say. Having gone through the process of extracting a masterpiece from your head what happens next? In most cases the book will end up in a desk drawer as a pile of papers or inside a computer. But that's not what you want, is it? You wrote it to get published. You want to see your name in print, to go into bookshops and see your book on the shelves. You want to feel that moment of pride when you see someone on the bus reading your book. The concept that a good book will always find a publisher is outdated and over-simplistic. The truth is that most writers remain unpublished because they pay attention only to the quality of their writing. Publishers are business people. Their job is to make money from selling books. They know that high quality writing alone isn't always enough to make a profitable book, so when choosing which manuscripts to sign up for publication they think about many more elements than just the words on the page. After 15 years in the book industry, Stewart Ferris has identified all of the crucial factors that publishers consider besides good writing. How to Get Published reveals for the first time these inside secrets and provides tactics that any writer can use to create the perfect conditions for their own 'lucky break' to happen
