Amazon.com: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Published, 4th Edition (9781592575183): Sheree Bykofsky, Jennifer Basye Sander

You’ve taken the time to write The Book. You’ve edited, polished, critiqued and revised until your laptop smokes (a nasty habit – it probably has a drinking problem as well, doesn’t it?) We know. We’re there. This guide will take you to the next level.

Don’t worry that it’s a bit out of date, the authors, Sheree Bykofsky and Jennifer Basye Sander must be psychic because they’re on top of tips and trends that weren’t even tipsy or trendy in 2006. Idiot’s Guide goes into behind-the-scenes detail about the publishing business. While at first the news seems discouraging (yes, the odds are stacked even more against you than you ever imagined), it’s a fairly painless way to gain that illusive, all-important “edge,” against the competition. Unfortunately, you actually have to apply all that sage advice because there are no magic spells included. All this hard work stuff makes me want to google “ghost writer.” If I can’t have magic I’ll settle for a paranormal advantage.
