Publishing a book?? - April 15th 2014, 09:05 PM

Hoping this is the right spot. I have written a book and was wondering what steps are to publishing. I feel conflicted with googling everything. I know like you send it off but I kinda want details.


feel free to PM me...

Hey

First off congratulations on writing a book! I'm studying English in uni, but I don't write much. We had a guest speaker in last year to talk to us about publishing. I can't remember much, since I write as a hobby not seriously, but the two main ways are either through an agent (try looking through an agency directory?), or self publishing. With an agent, you would have to pay and I'm not sure if they make commission or not, if it sells. I think then you would agree which publisher to send it to. I'm not sure what actually happens next. I know it may take a long time for them to read through your work, and I'm not sure if they offer feedback if they reject it. Self publishing is easier and cheaper, but may be harder to reach the audience. I think you can self publish through amazon.

Sorry it's not much help.

Hope your book gets published! Let us know how it goes

One of my friend self published 3 novels, which I think can work really well if you know someone who can edit, a few beta readers and the likes.
I think where she falls short is in having no real marketing plan, like she keeps telling people on facebook and stuff but it's like she's so limited there, know what I mean.
Publishers are hard, they cost more and won't necessarily publish you if they don't think your good enough...
J.K. Rowling published Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and you can see how well that worked out for her.
