Leonard Goss has years of publishing experience with major companies like Broadman & Holman. Co-author, Don M Aycock, is an author, seminar leader, and pastor. Their team effort on this handbook has produced an excellent resource for Christian writers seeking to get their work published.
Sharing experiences of famous authors like Max Lucado and Jan Karon, the authors start by pointing out that writing for publication is work—hard work. But, they go on to show that, if you are willing to work for it, you can “commit publishing.”
The book contains chapters on book proposals, contracts, the writer-editor relationship, and much more. The last portion is an excerpt from Goss’s A Little Style Guide for Great Christian Writing and Publishing (reviewed in this blog here). Although a chapter from the style guide is included in the handbook, I would recommend that writers new to the publication process acquire both the style guide and the handbook.
