I love helping others, especially new writers. I want to be able to share my journey of the knowledge I’ve acquired from starting out as a “wanna-be” writer, to getting traditionally published by a small press, to then having the confidence to self-publish.
I’ve read countless helpful books that tell you to go here, or go there, but I wanted to take it a little deeper and actually give you the step-by-step instruction to make it easier. It’s simple to say go out to this link, but what happens once you get there?
Writing is my passion and I have met so many amazing people that have helped me along the way. I want to share what I’ve learned in the best possible way of instruction that I can. I hope I can achieve that here and I wish you luck.
Keep on writing…Robin

Author Robin Murphy writes a very practical, hands-on and user-friendly book to enable a rookie writer to learn how to get their newly created work produced and available to
readers. While the rookie writer has many concerns and fears about publishing
their first book, there are great details concerning: editing, rewrites, cover letters, as well as self-publishing. A Complete 'How To' Guide For Rookie Writers provides excellent information including diagrams and snapshots of images for a clearer, more practical way to enable the reader to see how to perform the process described. This book gives the new writer a definite jump-start and breaks the big picture down into bite size pieces which can be better understood and managed.
There are many websites included that provide additional information for the reader to get their material published as well as tools for product promotion. The reader will quickly learn it isn't enough to write the book. After the book is written, there is another great adventure of promoting and getting the book out there for people to purchase. A book won't just land in a person's hand without some work, so this guide helps the new author to learn how to better promote their book to make sure this happens. There are great details outlining additional social media sites to make the book more widely known. Author Robin Murphy also describes how to produce your own book trailer to draw a larger crowd toward your work. This is a very easy read with wonderful pictures to lead the reader into a greater understanding of what the author is trying to portray in print. If a reader wants to make quick work of getting their book ready for publication, this would be a very insightful, well organized and enjoyable book to read.
