New book on self-syndication by Minnesota writer

Self-syndicated columnist, Jill Pertler, hopes to assist, inform and enlighten other syndication-hopefuls with her new book, "The Do-It-Yourselfer's Guide to Self-Syndication."

This how-to manual covers all the nitty-gritty details of self-syndication including: finding newspaper sources, building relationships with editors, managing addresses, getting a good headshot, dealing with fans, the terrors of public speaking, getting paid and a few surprises discovered along the labyrinth-like route to successful self-syndication.

Pertler has touched people's hearts and funny bones with her well-loved weekly column, Slices of Life, since 2002. It is currently published in more than 70 newspapers in six states (and counting!).

The book is available online in both print ($12.95) and e-book ($8.95) versions.
