The Publishing Industry... What is it and how do I break into it? (Part One)

So you have the desire to write a book and get it published. But, what does that really mean? Agents, Editors, Publishers, Reviewers, Book Doctors, Social Marketing, Retailers, Acquisitions, Contracts, Literary Attorneys, Fans, Self-Publishing, Traditional Publishing, Print On Demand, eBooks, Foreign Language, and the list goes on. What does it mean to "write for profit" and what are the pitfalls you should watch out for? Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he gives you some insights into the real world that is the Publishing Industry. Warning: this class is not for the weak of spirit.

    Good grief, MAD knows the industry inside and out, because he's chosen to endlessly analize every persons role in the process and exactly what they're thinking because of how they get paid in their role. He knows their motivations and specific knowledge set. Heck, he knows the price of wood being sold to the paper companies that supply paper to the book manufacturers that print your books. But he won't really go into that because that's not something you need to know about. He's on top of every aspect of the industry. Thinking about getting published? You NEED to here this man speak.
