In this book, Roger E. Sanders--author of 22 books and a frequent contributor to numerous magazines and trade journals--covers everything you need to know to turn your technical knowledge and expertise into a published article or book. Roger's comprehensive guide walks you through the process from beginning to end, describing in detail the steps required to turn your ideas into printed works.
Drawing on his extensive personal experience, Roger clearly outlines and explains the process of going from idea to print by covering topics such as selling your idea to a publisher; negotiating the terms of a publishing agreement; working with an editor; developing a working outline; writing the first draft; using tables, artwork, and sidebars; avoiding libel, plagiarism, and copyright infringement; revising for perfection; soliciting feedback; submitting the completed manuscript; addressing a copyeditor's comments; reviewing galleys; promoting the finished work; and much more. Each chapter contains real-life examples from Roger's own writing projects that were turned into published articles or books.
Most technical professionals possess a wealth of valuable knowledge but all too often lack the know-how to get published. The process of getting published is involved and often a long and tiring journey. It is not simply a matter of knowing how to write well (although that, too, is covered in this book). It is also knowing how to "sell" your idea to an editor and being able to negotiate your way through the maze of choices you will be faced with once you have received an offer from a publisher. Let Roger answer all your questions about just what it takes to get published and show you how to get started. More important, let him teach you how to become a successful, published author.
