Great Reference -- has answers for the novice.  Oct 3, 2006
Publising Gems, is an outstanding resource for the novice writer who must make career decisions. Information is clear and concise. Before you publish memorize every page. My copy has notes in the margins, is underline, dog-eared, and cross-referenced to other publications.
Nash Black, author of "Qualifying Laps" and "Taxes, Stumbling Blocks & Pitfalls for Authors 2007."

No "insider" information whatsoever  Jul 20, 2005
Lots of white space, lots of generalities, and little practical information. Tom Antion, in his latest book, gives more "insider" information on any single page, than does this lightweight author in his whole "book."
