Becoming An Author: Advice for Academics and Other Professionals

Becoming an Author provides an accessible and engaging toolkit for authors, students, academics and other professionals who want to build their careers, their confidence and their personal satisfaction through publication. It demystifies the move from being an effective student or active professional to being a published author.

The authors’ experience of publishing, editing and reviewing in a range of academic areas has allowed them to fill the book with real-life experiences about encountering and overcoming the problems associated with becoming an author. It has also allowed them to address the psychological and emotional barriers that confront authors, and to offer practical help in getting past them.
