Product description

Review

"Set the Page on Fire is another masterpiece by book industry professional Steve O'Keefe, author of groundbreaking textbooks on online book marketing and pioneer of author interview videos. His latest book reveals strategies learned from decades in the field and is a captivating, informative, and humorous necessity for any budding or veteran writer."
-- Gary Michael Smith, author of Getting Grease

"Irresistible!"
-- Judith Appelbaum, author of How to Get Happily Published

"A very well-composed work about writing. I am happy to say that, based on its merits alone, Set the Page on Fire is a book that all writers should read and reread."
-- Jeff Herman, literary agent and author of Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors & Literary Agents

"A class act . . . about making a life as a writer. I would compare it to The Art Spirit by Robert Henri."
-- Pat Hartman, editor of Salon and author of Ghost Town

"Solid advice for finding an editor or agent."
-- Alice B. Acheson, Literary Market Place award-winning publicist for Old Turtle, an American Booksellers Association Book of the Year

"I want to thank Steve O'Keefe for introducing me to his Four-Part Pitch. What an amazing tool."
-- Dr. Jeff Jones

"Steve O'Keefe's research-oriented approach helped me to identify the right agent for me, and then to zero in and just persist and have no mercy. I think the most valuable thing I learned from him was to never make it easy for them to say no -- never complain, always provide the action alternative. Thank you so much!"
-- Maggie Thrash, author of Honor Girl and Lost Soul, Be at Peace

"Well, it worked. I did some research and sent a query to the senior editor of McGraw-Hill's engineering department. The next day I received a phone call from him, and we have already begun talking contract."
-- Chris Ortiz, author of Lessons from a Lean Consultant

"Steve O'Keefe taught me how to write a query that sells. His practical knowledge of publishing and online promotion is tremendous."
-- Tim Bete, author of Guide to Pirate Parenting
