Adding the Magic
Even though publishing has rules, techniques, and best practices that make life easier, it is still a creative process and therefore magical. You'll feel elation when you receive your first books from the printer. Something initially vague in your mind has grown, taken shape, been refined and emerged as something you're proud to hand your friends and colleagues.
Removing the Mystery
If you've never created a book, publishing may look daunting, even impossible. It isn't. Publishing requires some vision, some knowledge, and some skill—but it isn't rocket science. With help, you can do it.
