    2. Anyone who has written or even thought about writing a book intended for publication should read The Naked Truth About Book Publishing. Author Linda Houle, co-owner of a small, traditional press, lays it all out in an easy to read, entertaining manner. Whether an author aspires to be published with a big press, small press or self publish, the ins and outs of the business are clearly explained in great detail. Everything from marketing the manuscript to promoting the finished product is covered. [...]


    3. I reread this book to reacquaint myself with the process for getting copyrights, book reviews, etc now that my novel--Zero Time--is nearing release. So much to learn! The author, Linda Houle, is my publisher (along with Lisa Smith, the other "L" of L&L Dreamspell), so that's another reason to value her perspective. The book is 120 pages of unvarnished facts about what to expect in today's market. Well worth a read!


    4. This book is an insightful accounting of book publishing today. At times, the truth is a bit hard to hear and accept; however, every new and aspiring author should read it.
