The reading pretty much describes writing a book as the easy part, publishing the book as the real challenge. There is so much more that goes into getting the book out to the audience than people think. In the "harriest chapter" of APE, the list of steps for publishing a book is extremely overwhelming- especially to someone who wants to publish a book. As a writer, I would like to think that the book process is all creativity and putting your thoughts onto paper, but all of the technology involved is enough to frustrate anyone. This being said, I think my advice (even though I have never published a book) is to be patient and know that you took all the time to write your book and create a story that it will be worth the time to do the technical stuff to get your idea out to the world. I have attached two links about advice for writers who are trying to publish books as well as the covers to two of my favorite books.
