Nancy Cleary takes the reader through the process of becoming published from idea to finished product in step-by-step format that is a joy to read. This is a must-read for women serious about getting their book into print.” -- Patti Chadwick,

“The two most important provisions an author can pack for her publishing journey are realistic expectations and practical advice. A Book is Born delivers these throughout. Nancy Cleary has taken the metaphor authors most often use to describe the publishing process and created an inspiring yet no-nonsense ‘birthing guide’. The collective wisdom and perspectives of # published authors and their midwife is a truly valuable and accessible introduction to publishing.” -- Gail Richards, founder,

A Book is Born: 24 Authors Tell All is a must read for authors, no matter what stage of the game they are in. Whether you are just starting your book dream or have your book completed and are hitting the PR trail, the motivational insights and solid how to advice, will help you along your journey. Even for experienced authors, I found incredible insights into writing and publishing that I didn't realize before. And what was even better, was how I could relate to the 24 authors who contributed. Going inside their publishing story and learning how they did it, was so encouraging and motivating. It left you with a "I can do this too" attitude. Also, the Secret & Science to Getting Your Book Published chapter is worth the price of the book itself. It's a whole chapter filled with the right way to publish your book with valuable tips and techniques that everyone can benefit from. I would highly recommend this book and hope those who read it get as much out of it as I did.” -- Diana Ennen, Virtual Word Publishing
