Hidden Labor & The Naked Body: Work They Don't Prepare You For After Publication

From self-publishing scams to academic presses, Joshua Nguyen explains the pitfalls and pleasures of the publishing world in Hidden Labor & The Naked Body: Work They Don’t Prepare You For After Publication. Useful examples of tax spreadsheets and promotion calendars are balanced with provocative writing prompts such as creating an ekphrastic poem about your own author photo or writing an unprofessional author bio listing all your insecurities. With humor and practical advice, Nguyen takes writers step-by-step through what they will have to become (accountant, social media manager, fundraiser, booking agent), while easing the anxieties of post-publication life.
