Are you interested in publishing a book, but unsure about your next step? Ed Cyzewski has been there, and he wrote this book to help you write it, choose commercial or indie publishing, and market your final work. After publishing his first nonfiction book Ed Cyzewski's inbox was flooded with publishing questions from friends, family, and complete strangers. As his replies grew longer and the questions continued, he wrote A Path to Publishing in order to share his lessons about the publishing process with new writers. A Path to Publishing is a big-picture, step-by-step guide for nonfiction publishing hopefuls. Beginning with mental preparation for writing and building a platform, Cyzewski helps readers develop their ideas, write regularly, pitch a proposal (if necessary), and market their work. Through accounts of his experiences, a series of case studies, and action steps, each chapter moves readers toward the final goal of becoming published writers. This version is the 2014 update of the original 2010 version, with extra marketing information and updates throughout the book.
