Alison Baverstock has done all the work for us - she's filtered the best information from the best brains in writing and publishing and combined them into this wonderful book. The advice comes from writers, agents, editors and publishers in all genres and numerous markets. This is a book for people serious about exploring a career in writing. Baverstock isn't afraid to bust the myth that there's a book in everyone - because there isn't. And I appreciate this approach, which doesn't indulge the would-be writer; instead, it is a frank, honest look at how the industry works, how writing works, and how to ensure you're doing the right thing on the path to the ISBN.
