Review by: James Cox, Midwest Book Review - September 3, 2006
Now in an updated second edition, A Teen's Guide to Getting Published: Publishing for Profit, Recognition, and Academic Success is a “user-friendly” introduction to the business end of the writing world written especially for young adults. Written by two successful former teen authors, A Teen's Guide to Getting Published covers the writing skill, freelance publishing, rights and copyright information, common mistakes, scams, and risks (of particular note is the warning against distributing one's address, phone numbers, or other sensitive contact information—such things can lead to harassment by stalkers and worse), the basics of writing camps and workshops, and much more. Written in a friendly, down-to-earth tone, A Teen's Guide to Getting Published is recommended to anyone getting started in selling their writing regardless of individual age.
