How To Be An Author

Calling all pre-published writers!

Getting your first book published can seem like an impossible task.
Where do you start?

By grabbing this book!

Fremantle Press has a brilliant new book out called How To Be An Author. Here’s the blurb:

This is an indispensable book for writers.
Between its pages is everything you need to know about the business of being a writer, from people who live and breathe books.
Keep this book by your side as you
pursue your publishing dream.

It’s chock full of tips and insights from published writers like Holden Sheppard, Alan Carter, David Whish-Wilson, Meg McKinlay, Amanda Curtin, Deb Fitzpatrick, Ambelin Kwaymullina and Liz Byrski. It even includes some waffle from me.

Topics include:

  • pitching
  • plotting and planning
  • contracts
  • agents
  • working with editors
  • social media
  • profile building
  • writing as a career

There’s even a How to be an Author Podcast and a fantastic Facebook group!

Find the book at the Fremantle Press website or your local bookshop.
