Straight talk from the publisher

The publishing world has changed, and the authors who are successful have changed with it. An explosion in printed books, E-books, and self-publishing has contributed to more new titles coming to market than ever before. With so much happening, how does a new author stand out from the crowd, not to mention turn a profit?

In Think Like a Publisher: 33 Essential Tips to Write, Promote, and Sell Your Book, Randy Davila explains the nuances of the publishing industry in plain English and gives authors the tools necessary to be successful in today’s rapidly changing publishing world.

“In my capacity as a publisher, I regularly review manuscripts and proposals that are being considered for publication.

While many are well-written and its clear the author is passionate about his or her topic, the #1 problem I find is that they are missing the key elements necessary to transform a good manuscript into a successful book.

In addition, these writers don’t understand how the publishing industry works, including what else is expected of them as an author.

Quite frankly, there is a difference between being a ‘good writer’ and a ‘published author.’

That’s the purpose of this book, to teach authors about the publishing industry and the steps necessary to create a book that reaches as many people as possible.”

– Randy Davila
