From the outside, book publishing can seem mysterious, but from the inside it is really quite simple.
Twenty-two-year publishing veteran Brenda Knight will teach you how to sell yourself and your book idea, who you are really selling, the importance of “comp titles,” how to craft the perfect proposal, and trend tracking. “I have acquired over one thousand books in my career, including a few New York Times best sellers. One of the great joys in my life is to help authors get their work into print and published successfully,” says Knight.
Brenda Knight started her career at HarperCollins, where she fell in love with publishing. Today she is the publisher of Cleis Press and founder and publisher of Viva Editions, an imprint of Cleis Press.
Knight is also the author of Women of the Beat Generation, which won an American Book Award, and The Grateful Table: Blessing, Prayers and Graces for the Daily Meal.
