In Publishing Confidential, best-selling author Paul B. Brown guides you step by step through the otherwise difficult process of getting a publisher to say "Yes." He does it with real-life examples, including a fully annotated sample proposal so you know what to include (and what to leave out), and practical advice about reaching the right editors and agents. Plus, you'll learn valuable lessons about contract language and negotiations, and how to become an integral part of your publisher's marketing efforts.
