From the Author:

New Reviews of the Publishing Industry Classic
Now starting on its second half-million in sales, How to GetHappily Published continues to win praise from writers and publishing pros.

"The phenomenal Resources section would be worth the price of the book all by itself," Elizabeth A. Geiser, Director, The Publishing Institute.

Now that you're done toiling over that manuscript, you can tackle the hard part -- getting it published. Fortunately, Judith Appelbaum has been helping writers turn their dreams into reality for 20 years with this classic. In addition to telling you how to find and work with agents and editors, the fifth edition features more on how to negotiate contracts, use electronic media to get publicity, and where to find resources. With this guide tucked under your arm, book signings are just around the corner (not to mention a possible appearance in the QPB Review; but be warned -- your friends will get jealous). - Quality Paperback Book Review

JUDITH APPELBAUM, author of the classic How to Get Happily Published, just out in a fifth edition, has been a columnist and reviewer for The New York Times Book Review, an editor of Harper's and the managing editor of Publishers Weekly.

Winner of the Publishers Marketing Association Benjamin Franklin Award for Lifetime Achievement, she chairs the Book Industry Systems Advisory Committee's royalty group and is a leader in industry efforts to improve royalty statements for the benefit of authors and publishers alike.

A member of the board of the Book Industry Study Group, the advisory committee of The Small Press Center and the faculty of The Publishing Institute at the University of Denver, Judith Appelbaum often gives talks and workshops on publishing and getting published.
