Review: Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors and Literary Agents: Who They Are, What They Want, How to Win Them Over

Avis d'utilisateur  - Linda Schell - Goodreads

Not only is Jeff's book well-organized, it is one of the few "How To" books I have found to be enjoyable and informative. Although Herman's guide is aimed at traditional publishing, Indie authors can benefit. Herman gives a long list of book editors, a must for an Indie author. Consulter l'avis complet
