Book Magic: Turning Writers Into Published Authors, By Julie H. Ferguson

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Everyone in North America who dreams of commercial or self-publication for their book, whether fiction or nonfiction.

Q: What is the book about?
A: Easy to read and practical, Book Magic provides all the information and tools aspiring authors need to understand the publishing industry and increase their chances of getting published. Most importantly, it explodes the pervasive myths that discourage writers from trying to get published and demonstrates that it is easier than most believe. Aspiring authors discover: spells to increase their chances of publication; the wizardry surrounding agents; the crystal ball that interprets trends; how Canadian and American publishing scenes differ; how approachable medium and small publishers really are; and some electronic sorcery. Book Magic guides writers to the enchanted moment when they hold their first published book in their hand.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I have been writing for nearly forty years and have had thirteen books published, including three on naval and church history, and six for writers and teachers. When it comes to getting books published, I have done it all: self and commercial, print and electronic, print-on-demand, as well as managed my own short runs at printers. For the last eleven years I have been speaking and instructing on the topic of getting published at writers’ conferences and at a community college. With all this experience under my belt, I wrote Book Magic so others could learn what took me sixteen long years to absorb.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: At 130 pages, Book Magic is short, snappy, and to the point. I designed it to be read quickly and then dipped into when needed. The large appendix contains many examples, useful articles, and vital info and resources for aspiring authors from a writer’s perspective, not that of an agent or editor.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
Book Magic is available at and through my website at Magic.htm.
