9781861514097: How Not To Write A Book: An insider’s guide to successful writing and publishing

Asked to name their ideal job, more people in the UK say they would like to be an author than anything else. Yet with more than 200,000 books now being published here a year and over two million worldwide, the competition is getting fiercer by the minute. As editor in chief of a successful self-publishing house, Chris Newton spends most of his waking hours editing and ghostwriting books for other people, and he knows all about how books can go wrong and how they can be put right. He is also a successful published author, one of his books having been acclaimed by a professional reviewer as having ‘a good claim to be the finest biography of an angler ever written’.

He has also written Golden Game Fair, a history of the CLA Game Fair, and The Trout’s Tale. Chris is an experienced editor, ghost writer and media contributor and lives in Gloucestershire, England.
