How do you get the attention of a book publisher and walk away with a nice, fat contract in your hands? Itâs more than just the power of positive thinking and a book full of clever acronyms.

Radio, print, television and Internet exposure are the real secrets of success in the publishing industry. This teleseminar delivers some of the fastest tricks, tips, techniques and solid strategies to get you into the media immediately.
