Books about the book biz, publishing and self-publishing that I

"The Publishing Game: How to be Published in 30 Days" by Fern Reiss ( or phone[masked] ) provides tangible info
on how to self-publish your book, with addresses and phone numbers
needed to get your book
completed, ie. getting an ISBN number, a Library categorization

Dan Poynter's book, "The Self-publishing Manuel" (
or phone[masked] ) is another book about completing the process of
making a book from a manuscript.

These two cross-reference each other and can give you an objective
view with substance.
