AWP - "The Year of Practical Thinking: Getting a First Book to Print"

Five fiction and memoir authors from wide-ranging backgrounds—from Big Five houses to tiny indie presses—discuss the process of getting their debut book to print. We discuss the agent query and search, the sale (including money), the editing process, publicity, and planning a book tour. Everyone talks about how to get published. What do you do once you sign the contract? With Matt Sumell, Shanna Mahin, Gwendolyn Knapp, and Kevin Sampsell. Moderated by Jennifer Pashley.
