Should you send the whole manuscript, or just the first few chapters? Do you need an agent? Should you self-publish?

Great questions! I can’t answer them all here, but I can help with the self-publishing decision. Here are six reasons to self-publish your novel or nonfiction book… Read More »Self-Publish or Find a Publisher? 6 Benefits of Self-Publishing
