John Grisham scribbled notes on a legal pad between court sessions. Those notes eventually became his best-selling novel A Time to Kill. Recollections of growing up in depression--era Ireland compelled Frank McCourt to write his best-selling memoir Angela's Ashes. Is a novel or nonfiction book burning inside you? Do you dream of being a published author? If so, learn the ins and outs of publishing from a pro who has helped dozens of students become authors. Discover how the book publishing industry works, how to pitch your idea to publishers and agents and how to guide your book to publishing success.

Praise for Pauline Bartel from:
Helen Bemis of Gansevoort, NY

"You have been a great cheerleader for me. The information you have given in your classes and our time together on the phone, through e-mails as well as in your presentations have been invaluable to me. I understand the maze (and language) of being a writer better because of your help. I feel I can never thank you enough!"
