This page is a "hub" -- a contents list. As we post feature articles on the complex subject of publishing, we index them here, and sort them into a (roughly) coherent order. This is the place to start if it's help or pointers with the actual publishing process you're looking for -- be it in book design, cover creation, the hunt for an agent to represent you, or the labyrinthine process of working with printshops such as Lulu and CreateSpace.

In this section, we'll be talking about POD, agents, traditional publishers, 'the road to Amazon,' and a whole lot more.

One of our topics will be ebooks: how to publish them and (better yet) how to sell them

Another hot topic will be book covers, and here, it's over to Jade, the digital artist who is the cover designer for DreamCraft. A sample of Jade's work appears right here, for your visual delight (scroll down).

Entries to this section have just begun with...
