Ever wonder how a book gets published, becomes a best-seller, maybe even a movie later on? Here are some of the people who make it happen. But brace yourself. Sometimes it ain't real pretty.

Besides, which of us can say who really writes a novel that gets published by a traditional publisher? Do we see the editor's "doctoring" as the ultimate product? Or does the publisher dictate the final version of the book, since he's the one who makes the decisions that count? Come to think of it, what if the author isn't really the author?

Kinda makes you cogitate, don't it?
