The third edition of Julie H. Ferguson’s bestselling book, ‘Book Magic: Turning Writers into Published Authors’, is indispensable for every writer who dreams of publication in print or electronic versions. In response to the surge in e-books, this edition presents an enlarged and revised chapter, Electronic Sorcery, to guide you in getting published in this new medium, whether you want to do it yourself or go with a commercial e-publisher.
Easy to read and practical, Book Magic provides all the information you need to understand the Canadian and US publishing industries and details the spells and magic bullets you need to get your manuscript accepted. If self-publishing is for you, the book shows you how to choose the best from three options for your title. The world of electronic publication is fully updated for those who wish to format and upload their books so they can be read on e-readers, tablets, and smartphones.
‘I have had the privilege of editing the second and third editions of Book Magic, and I can’t say enough about this gem. The beefed-up sections on electronic publishing in the new edition are indispensable for any writer hoping to enter, and thrive, in the e-world. I recommend Book Magic to all my editing clients, whether they want to publish commercially, to self-publish, or now to e-publish.’
