From the Author
I have been a publisher and an author, and given my position on both sides of the fence, always interested in why some people get published and others do not. I decided to try to theorise, and my book is the result: a serious look at the personal and physical resources you need in order to get a book published. I particularly enjoyed exploring the circumstances writers choose in which to work - this revealed a vast range of interesting ideas and environments to try out!See all Product Description

I myself am calmer after finishing this book but I can easily see why it could also energise. I feel there is a less struggling happening. As if I have reached a plateau. Certainly, there were many chapters which reverberated within me.
I now have a better understanding of why I write and that was the essence of this book for me. It is clear and forthright and honest. Buy this book. It will make you a better writer and a better person.
