Which are some of the best self-publishing or conventional publishing houses that are quick for first-time writers?

The best self-publishing channels are CREATESPACE and MikeWords, especially if you are a new/up-and-coming writer. Prior to going all-in, go to both websites, REVIEW their requests for the upload of your work. There are NO QUICK THINGS about "traditional" publishing houses - of course, if you have an agency (which is often hard to reach, but NOT impossible) - it will help tremendously and get you to the hilly pile of entries much faster than just "blind submissions".

And not to speak of the fact that many "traditional" publishing houses do not take on unasked scripts. A long publishing tradition. First, your textbook will be sent in for evaluation. Heck, Stephen King was denied many a time before it was eventually released as tradition. When he started to write on his old fashioned paper, of course, there was neither Createspace nor Smashwords.

They can be turned down by a conventional editor, but there are many who reject unwanted scripts. No matter what you do, don't let yourself be disheartened if you succumb to a conventional publishing house and are turned down. Anyway back to handed-down publishing - once your product is acknowledged by a handed-down business, location are commerce, message, product subscriptions that condition to be put up; rewrites because of writing content; and all this filming case.

When you are fortunate enough to be approved by an agency, you will pay it out of your bonuses. They' re not doing it for smiling and giggling, but they'll work really harder to get your books to be published by old-fashioned publishing houses. ALSO, you are well advised to do some self-promotion, even if you are collected by a conventional editor, and DEFINITIVE if you publish yourself on Createspace or Smashwotrds.

This will help if you have any kind of backgrounds in sales, graphic design, advertisement, etc., as DAS gives you a starting point for your publicity activities. If you have a few'hard copies' for your own promotion, it' in your bookstore or library is a good place to get your books recognized.

Books Trailer are another useful utility if you have any kind of expertise in building a movie promotion. Flyers, flyer, posters, visiting-card - every kind of promotional instrument is useful. You never know who knows who or what kind of contact they can have when they see potentials in your books - the thing is to get it out, get it out, and make it legible.

Both Smashwords and Createspace, MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR BOOK COPYRIGHTED ASAP, have it. I' m sorry this takes so long, but there's a great deal of work to do to publish a volume, and you have to search for invisible'rocks' before jumping into the canal.
