Book Recommendation!

I can’t resist a two-minute browse through the new book section at the library. I typically browse non-fiction for a few gems and get lucky at least once a month.

This months find, The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published by Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry, was published just last year. The book was originally published in 2005 as Putting Your Passion into Print, but with all of the changes to the publishing industry, they decided to update the material…and an awesome book was reborn!

Both authors, Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry, have a plethera of knowledge and experience behind their motivation to create this masterpiece. Arielle, a former literary agent and successful entrepreneur, is in tune with her husband and writing partner, David Henry Sterry. David has experience as a best-selling author, professional actor and media coach. Between the two of them they have written thirteen books!

Here are the Four Principles of Successful Publishing they recommend:

  1. Research. Do it, do it often, stay ahead of your competition
  2. Network. People skills, people skills, people skills
  3. Write. Do it, do it often, do it well
  4. Persevere. Well, we all need a little of this in the writing world…

Check out a copy at your local library or find more info about the book here at the authors website:

I am going to pick this one up ASAP! Happy reading!
