Spiritual writing : from inspiration to publication
Herman, Deborah
Adult Nonfiction BR44 .H465 2002

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Although the first half of Spiritual Writing: From Inspiration to Publication is a well-written guide to nursing one's spiritual muse, it is the book's forthright and sensible second half that makes it a must-read. Here, Deborah Berman and Cynthia Black give readers the skinny on finding "spirit-friendly" literary agents and publishers, crafting a strong book proposal and navigating the publication process. They paint a realistic picture of the publishing world, which is increasingly open to spiritual books but also, as ever, concerned about the bottom line. PW feels that the authors deserve an award simply for warning, "Never say, in your proposal, `God told me to write this' or `My psychic told me it would be a best-seller.' " (PW has seen this and worse.) The book is quite comprehensive, addressing the evangelical Christian market almost as well as it deals with the New Age. It should be on the desk of every spiritual writer. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
