Back cover blurb: Launch the right career for you.

There are more options than ever to get your book published. But what’s the right path to a career as an author for you? Discover the different publishing paths, learn what’s right for your story, and use specific tools and activities to present your work in the best possible way.

Practical Advice Meets Real Experience

With information that explores both traditional and self publication, Paper Hearts describes:

-How to Pick the Right Publishing Path for You
-Basic Professional Advice
-Practical Information on Agents
-How to Write a Query Letter
-Dealing with Traditional Publication
-Developing a Book for Self Publishing
-Budgeting and Investing Money in Your Career
-Steps to becoming a Career Author

…And much more!

BONUS! Includes an actual query letter that snagged an agent, plus guidelines and models to write a query or book description from an author who has successfully published in both methods.

My review: Some excellent advice for anyone who has written a book and doesn’t know how to get it published. I’ve worked for the last half dozen years in the publishing industry and even I learned quite a bit, especially regarding self-publishing and the mysteries of the query letter. Revis writes in an amusing and informative way, and I’ll definitely be hunting out the other two books in this series. Highly recommended.

***Disclaimer: This e-ARC was provided to me by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Huge thanks to them. ***

My rating: 5/5
