Publishing Guide

So you’ve written a book? Well done, most people never get that far; but what are you going to do with it now? If you were thinking of printing it out and sending the manuscript to a publisher you may need to hold on.

  • How do you find publishers?
  • What about literary agents? What do they do and are they worth it?
  • Which agent or publisher will you send  it to?
  • Do they have a required submission policy?
  • Do they actually want books at the moment?
  • How much will it cost in ink, paper and postage?
  • Do you need to pay a publisher?
  • How long are you prepared to wait?
  • Should I self publish? How do I do that?

Sending complete manuscripts off to a publisher probably isn’t the best method of getting published. The process is a lot more involved today. You’ll need some guidance. That’s what this site and the book that goes with it are all about.

Before you go further let me make some assumptions:

  • You don’t have a spare fortune available to get your book published
  • You’d like to see your book in print soon – certainly within two years.
  • You would like to make some money from this, not spend more money than you earn.
  • You have written your book using a word processor.
  • You have no idea about book promotion.
  • You think you can produce a book cover and think you can edit your manuscript.

Does that fit you? If so, read on… but for some pages, you'll have to wait a day or so since I'm busy changing the website.
