Can I get my Book PublishedMay I have my book published?
Vanity Press author ends up with a box of books no one wants to buy.
getting-published: If you can't get an asset, what can you do?
A part of what triggered this was taking a Thursday evening classes in a craft yard: a blackboard: It was written, mainly at nights, for my mother, who was uncomfortable and reading it while I was reading it, and much of my sadness and vigor was consumed by this book; and a few day after I had ended it, my mother passed away, and it was suddenly and terribly.
I' ve forgotten the book. At the beginning of 2013 I had not yet found a wife, let alone a trader. I' m reading every book and every blogs about self-publication. Payed to put the book on a website (called NetGalley) where folks can freely view it before it is published to create exposure and awarenes.
I' ve contacted the booksellers. I' ve written to book groups on line. I' ve also started a souvenir promotion by hanging billboards and distributing advertisements in the size of visiting cards for the book in Highgate and on Hampstead Heath (my man and my boy have kicked me out on dogs outings). I' ve opened my own papers and journals directly.
One of my friends got me together with a free-lance book manufacturing specialist and assisted me in producing the kind of good book I needed to have a shot at getting into the book trade. I had a home that my realtor had bought for the publisher of Grazia and he gave her OneStepToo Far and she used it.
All of a sudden I got bids for the book from book companies all over the globe. Now, I mainly work as a full-time writer, and my own publishing carreer is on the retreat. At first it was difficult to be published by someone else, because I could make all my own choices. Born in Hampshire, Tina Seskis spent more than twenty years working in the fields of publicity and promotion before turning to literature.
In the meantime, the copyrights have been distributed to fifteen publishing houses around the world. She and her wife and daughter live in North London, where she works as a full-time writer.
