Publisher's Summary

The "must have" book by the acknowledged expert for self-help/how-to business, recovery, sports, health, self-improvement, hobby, crafts, health, and New Age writers. 

"If you follow only a third of her advice, you'll have a successful book." (Jeremy Tarcher) 

In this unique book, author and editor Jean Marie Stine shows writers how to avoid the errors that keep most self-help books from finding publishers and off the best-seller lists if they are published.

From the author: "Before starting this book, I carefully reviewed stacks of rejected self-help manuscripts from aspiring authors. I also looked at first drafts which publishers had asked me to rewrite before they were deemed suitable for publication. I kept a running list of the defects I noted. Altogether, I found 68 key mistakes most inexperienced authors seemed to make. In this book I describe each of the 68 key mistakes so that you can recognize them when you see them in your own work. Then I explain how you can avoid or correct the problem. The result should be a zero-defect manuscript and book proposal that will sail through the editorial and publishing committees to acceptance."
