No matter what kind of book you want to publish, the advice, inspiration and down-to-earth tips in this book will help you get to your goal. Joel Friedlander, one of the leading advocates for self-publishing on the internet, draws on a lifetime of experience helping self-publishers launch their books. He demystifies book publishing and, in the process, answers your questions about how to use social media, the importance of sound book construction, and the critical tasks that confront the modern self-publisher. As independent publishing becomes more popular with authors and readers, A Self-Publisher's Companion will show you the new way to publish and promote your book. From ebooks to iBooks, the author also shows how the move to ebooks is affecting independent publishers, and how best to approach the opportunity presented by Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iPad and all the other ebook readers. Drawn from his popular blog, TheBookDesigner.com, this book will help ensure self-publishers don't get left behind.

If you want to write a book that's going to sell to both publishers and readers, you need to know how to produce a marketable work and help it become successful. It starts the moment you have an idea. That's when you begin thinking about the first elements of the business plan that will make your project the best it can be. The reality is that you don't want to spend time and energy writing a book that will never get read. The way to avoid that is to create a business plan for your book, and evaluate it (and yourself) through the same lens that an agent or acquisitions editor would. The Author Training Manual will show you how to get more creative and start looking at your work with those high standards in mind. Whether you're writing fiction or non-fiction, or intend to publish traditionally or self-publish, author Nina Amir will teach you how to conduct an effective competitive analysis for your work and do a better job at delivering the goods to readers than similar books that are already on the shelf. Packed with step-by-step instructions, idea evaluations, sample business plans, editor and agent commentaries, and much more, The Author Training Manual provides the information you need to transform from aspiring writer to career author.

Drei Mädchen. Ein Sommer. Und eine Freundschaft, die ihr Leben für immer verändert. Sommer in Florida. Anfangs sind sie erbitterte Konkurrentinnen: die drei so unterschiedlichen zehnjährigen Mädchen – Raymie, Beverly und Louisiana, die alle an einem Wettbewerb um die »Little Miss Central Florida« teilnehmen. Jede von ihnen hat einen Verlust erlitten und erhofft sich durch den Sieg beim Wettbewerb, das Schicksal korrigieren zu können. Wie sie schließlich enge Freundinnen werden und in einer spektakulären Rettungsaktion, als Louisiana fast ertrinkt, beweisen, was echte Freundschaft vermag, das erzählt Kate DiCamillo, wie nur sie es kann.
