How to Publish a Book has a new interview. This week I interviewed author Luleen Anderson on The Artist's Craft (directed
by Michael Graziano and Marnie Cooper-Priest) for the Raleigh Television Network. Dr. Anderson is the author of The Knack of a Happy Life, and her life story is very inspiring.
A trained clinical psychologist who earned her PhD from Boston University, Luleen's
story is absolutely fascinating. I hope you'll enjoy this new episode for The Artist's Craft brought to you here at
How to Publish a Book.

We have a new interview for How to Publish a Book taken from today's shooting of "The Artist's Craft"

We discussed her book, how she sold her book to her publisher, and her plans
for future books as well.
If you're interested in publishing a non-fiction book, Danny's discussion of her proposal
and how she sold her book to Milestone Press will be of particular interest.
