Writing a book is easy. Selling a book is hard. Now you can learn how the publishing business really works from an industry insider. Adam Lee evaluates hundreds of queries every week as a Publishing Analyst for Lasaria Creative Publishing. He decides which manuscripts move on in the publishing process and which manuscripts are rejected. In this honest and entertaining handbook for authors, Adam provides his unique insight into: Queries, Submissions, Literary Agents, Publishers, Contracts, the Publishing Process, Editing, Book Promotion, Fiction, Non-fiction, Juvenile Fiction, Short Stories, Poetry, and Self-publishing. Adam will tell you what you should and should not do as you approach agents and publishers. You have to understand how the publishing industry operates and how to function as a professional writer if you want to be successful. An accomplished author of fiction, non-fiction, and short stories, Adam writes under a pen name to preserve his anonymity and separate his creative life from his professional life. A graduate of Virginia Tech, Adam lives in Fairfax, Virginia with his wife, Marie, and his German Shepherd, Larry.
