From the Author:

One thing to remember: Once you have written a book, you are an author!
You don't need to be published to be an author, or there would be no such thing as a "published author."

This book started as a handout from my workshops at writers' conferences. I had 42 steps on a two-sided sheet (because that was all I could fit). Each step had one or two sentences and was necessarily brief. I decided to explain a little more to eliminate questions and in the process created eight more steps, so there are 50 in the book.

You'll notice that the actual writing comes near the beginning. That's the easy part. The rewriting and editing takes far longer, but are well worth the effort. Your readers are literate, and they'll notice bad writing and toss your book if they don't like it.

Feel free to contact me if you want input or help. Or look for me on faculty at your writers' conference.

From the Back Cover:

Do you have a book inside of you, waiting, screaming to get out? From getting an idea to cashing royalty checks, How to Write a Book AND Get it Published gives you an overview of what's involved in writing and publishing your manuscript, whether for your family or for the whole world. This book will give you the basics, so you'll know what to do and what to expect each step of the way.

Debbie Hardy's latest book is Free to Be Fabulous: 100 Ways to Look and Feel Younger at 40, 50, and Beyond. She speaks to groups and teaches at writers' conferences, encouraging budding authors to get their books out. Her website is DebbieHardy.com.  

Now it's YOUR turn! Open this book, follow the steps, and you could become a published author!
