Victor Volkman grew up as a computer geek, bought an Interact Model One computer with his life savings at age 14 and never looked back. Before he finished highschool, he had taken BASIC, FORTRAN, COBOL, and 6800 Assembly Language classes. He earned his BS in Computer Science at Michigan Tech University (cum laude). The next 10 years, he concentrated on writing for computer programming journals such as C/C++ Users Journal, Windows Developer's Journal, The C Gazette, and others. During this phase, he wrote computer programming textbooks including "C/C++ Treausure Chest" and "Windows Programming with Shareware Tools."

Book Review :
"Authors Access: 30 Success Secrets for Authors and Publishers" is a compilation of podcast interviews of award-winning authors, editors, publishers, publicists, business owners, consultants, freelance writers, and book reviewers. Within 200+ pages, they guide the prospective writer through many of the obstacles faced and common mistakes made in DIY publishing while making certain the finished product is as marketable as those published by established publishing companies. Further, and as many new authors come to realize, there is just as much work after your book has been published. "Authors Access" continues to provide sound information on promotion, obtaining book reviews, hiring a publicist, and making the most of today's technological advances.
With an already innumerable amount of publishing how-to books on the market today, what makes "Authors Access" so special? Consider this: most of these types of books are written by one, sometimes two or even a small group of experts in a specific field of the greater publishing world. This person, whether a published author, editor, or agent has extensive experience doing whatever it is that they do best. However, their how-to books are limited to their road to victory. Want a second opinion on how to be a publishing success? Read another book...and another and another. With "Author Access," you have the advice, the techniques, and the proven track record of many professionals from all aspects of the business...and in one concise book. Additionally, there is a natural flow to the book; organized and edited in such a way that there is seamless cohesion despite the number of different `expert voices' sounding out.
"Authors Access: 30 Success Secrets for Authors and Publishers" is a must-read for any first time writer or self-published author looking to improve their skills.
