One of the administrative questions
Authors may have is
"How do I get my book published”?
Writing a book now a days is just not enough…
Your book needs to catch the eyes of the readers.
Traditionally the way of having your book published is to find a publishing house. You will be gratefully thankful if the publishing house awards you with royalty advancements and the assurance of monthly royalty checks.
Publishing houses certainly can offer you a dear beloved deal with all the fringe benefits & most Authors would love to have a sweet deal like this.
You as the author can remain on-board with the publishing house to promote the book, by going on tours and build & expand your platform.
However, if you are not a known author or a celebrity with a platform you should not wait for such a sweet deal.
OK so what is this “author’s platform” we talk-about?
In a nutshell it’s the perception of authority, given by the general public to an author, as being recognized as the expert in his or her particular field.
It’s the new buzzword for authors promoting their own books, usually with website-blogs, public speaking, teaching, personal radio & TV appearances just to name a few.
Without a platform your odds of your manuscript even making the loop to be read are very low, even if the book has the “making of the next bestseller”.
With million of new books written each year no wonder traditional publishers are getting more & more picky to whom they give book deals to.
Today’s old school ways can turn into “no-way” especially if you’re told “sorry no book deal for you”.
FORTUNATELY Authors today have alternatives. Un-fortunately one of them is known as Vanity Publishing. They take various book rights and your money in fees and give little in return.
New authors looking for traditional publishers can easy fall prey to a vanity publisher. This is where you pay high fees just to have your book printed and on top of that you pay even more out-of-pocket expanses for distribution and promotions, “So authors beware of Vanity Publishing”.
One alternative to traditional publishing is self-publishing. With self-publishing you control the printing, distribution and promotion of your book.
The greatest advantage is your book can be printed and distributed within a few short weeks, plus you keep all the royalties.
But still challenging enough, especially if you’re somewhat unfamiliar with “what you need in-order to promote the book”.
The biggest challenge, if you are new to self-publishing is the journey into the unknown. You’ll need time for the learning curb, and more time to do all the work. This could easily be a deal killer.
It takes time, talent and money to make a book deal successful.
Lets say you do have the talent, and maybe you do have some money (not much needed) but still your time can be a big concern if you have little to spare.
One way to succeed today is by using the groundbreaking techniques of Joint Ventures.
This is where your manuscript could hit payday with joint venture publishers and marketers to help you sell your books.
Authors have to face many challenges in addition to writing, there is the technical side like printing, distribution, ISBN numbers, cover designing & royalty reports, to name a few.
Success of a book depends on the ability to first write the manuscript and second to publish the book. The second part is just as equally important as the first, if the book is to get into the hands of the readers.
Since it is difficult for new aspiring authors to “get a foot in the door with mainstream publishing” authors may find themselves out of the loop. Even if lucky enough to find a publishing house who will look at the manuscript, the author may have to wait for a long time before a decision is rendered.
It’s typically at this stage when an author questions whether the manuscript will even become a book. Spending all that time writing and now having to wait for a long time for a decision, the author’s big question now is “what to do next”?
The answer "Self-Publish"
Beginners & pros can learn many of these basic skills needed to have a book in print and distributed and relatively quick.
Even outsource some of these activities at very little cost.
How’s $5.00 for a great looking book cover and $5.00 to format the book and $25.00 to have your book up in printed & shipped to you within a few days?
This is all true with the new “print-on-demand” & other services you can learn on the internet today.
