"Perfect Bound is an indispensable resource for anyone who dreams of making it on his or her own." -Adam Motin, managing editor, Triumph Books

Each chapter of Perfect Bound: How to Navigate the Book Publishing Process Like a Pro walks readers through a different stage of production, highlights the major problems that sideline unsuspecting authors at that stage, and carefully explains how to avoid them. Anecdotes from a dozen publishing professionals illuminate what it takes to publish a book. Defining your audience, performing market analysis, reviewing page proofs, getting the most bang for your marketing efforts, and much more, are covered.

This updated and revised edition of the multi-award-winning guide features new exercises for choosing your path to publication, condensed and updated information on e-book companies, a discussion of hybrid publishing, and an updated Resources section. A new interview with an e-book formatter sheds light on this specialized area of publishing.

Readers will also find current costs associated with publishing and even more ways to save money. Additional information on marketing options such as blog tours and article placements will help authors reach more potential readers than ever.

Authors will save time, money, and embarrassment when they know what to expect, and what is expected of them, on the road to publication.
