With dramatic changes in publishing, it’s a wild and exciting time to be an author. But how do authors, both new and experienced, choose what’s best for their books, and how can they best promote them? While there’s lots of advice out there, much is unsound and untested, especially when it comes to making a reasoned decision on how and where to publish.

Enter Deb Vanasse, a successful author who pulls no punches in this practical guide to book production, promotion, and living the writer’s life, no matter how you publish. Author of sixteen books with six different presses, Vanasse sorts through the noise to help authors reach an informed understanding of how best to publish and make sure their books get noticed.
