The Publish-It-Yourself Handbook: Literary Tradition & How-To, Without Commercial or Vanity Publishers.
Henderson, Bill, Ed.
The tradition of self-publishing is represented in this book, which describes the publishing adventures of 26 writers who have sold up to hundreds of thousands of copies of their works. Included are a winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction, a cookbook author, a literary agent, a playwright, authors of instructional books, minority-group writers, editors of magazines and journals, and many poets and novelists. Suggestions and practical tips on when to, when not to, and how to publish without the assistance of commercial or subsidy publishers are provided throughout the book and in a separate section devoted to this subject. A bibliography of seventy books about such related subjects as printing, writing, and copy editing concludes the volume. (HOD)
