Don Keithabout this book: So many dream of being a published author. So many believe simply getting a book contract is the path to fame and fortune. But that is not the case at all.
First, the odds against an undiscovered author getting published are astronomical. Even finding a literary agent who can market a book to publishers is a long, long shot.
Secondly, even if a writer gets an agent and a book contract, he or she will soon find that the job is just beginning. Some consider self-publishing, and that arena is booming now with new and interesting technology--and serious drawbacks--that can attract authors.
But it can be done. You can be published...and read. I am the author of more than two dozen published works, most with major houses, including a national bestseller, a book now in pre-production as a major motion picture, and a book that won top awards. My first novel has been in print since 1995. I have seen the pitfalls and obstacles that can discourage anyone who not only wants to be published, but who wants to find readers.
I put those observations and experiences in this e-book because I get so many inquiries from would-be authors seeking advice. I hope this work will help them realize their dreams. It is priced at only $2.99 so it is not such a big investment in someone's career. Good luck!
