How to be a Published Author

Becoming a published author

You' re willing to make enough money to quit your job. The work you create will contain exactly what you originally imagined. The only thing you have to do is write the book and submit the manuscript - a traditional publisher does the rest of the work. That' often the hardest part for writers -- "What the hell am I writing about? Retail chains do not buy books directly from the authors.

How does an author become a published author?

That' s specifically for the Indian publisher industry: Editors in India can be contacted directly. Googling all editors and sending them your manuscripts. There are some who are very interested in receiving the printed version and ask you to send the printed version. Although it is said that they go through every single script, I have serious doubts.

Causes can be very real, because sometimes you are not at all good to what you write, does not fit to your publisher'sschema. When you are turned down by everyone for a script that you clearly see is having great deal of marketing - it means that your letter is still an amateur.

Big homes take some reaction and sometimes they don't react at all. At some point after 2-3 month you will learn from them that your script does not fit in with their publisher's programme. Even though the idea of literature as an agent is only just beginning to emerge, it is still undeveloped and exploitable for writers.

In India, a pimp is a pimp who addresses inexperienced writers who have no idea/network/foot in the publishers' business and takes a significant part of their emoluments away from them. Mm-hmm. But if you really have no idea about how to go about posting and you are sucking at self-promotion, then they can be of significant help - at least they can get you great homes and get a good publisher to you too.

Large publisher do not mean that you will be selling. It is ironic that smaller publisher produce more best sellers than larger publisher because India's contemporary reading public has more non-English backgrounds and prefers lightweight literature to literature. The editorships of smaller companies are an imagined unit.

A publisher associated with small publishers is either some casual bloogger or a broken author, and they get nuts for the work. They usually release the rough script without even working on a single section. It is important - even if you have a good command of English - because it makes the script much more legible and concise and makes the edges weave to improve the river.

When you decide on a small company, have it processed by a few independent writers. Only a few are very good and answer by e-mail. There is no need for agents in the printing sector, but the way to manage oneself is to network with the staff in the sector.

Use your already established networks - ask your acquaintances if they know someone from the branch, make an appointment. It is very important to be in a big metropolis in order to gain a firm footing in the world of printing. Do not ask any author to recommend you. Writers have very little to say because they are not publishers - they are only their clients.

Ask a publisher/media representative to recommend you - it will have a better effect. Authors need a badge. The way from author to author I describe in the authors section of my website. If you are known for typing in a particular style, your ability to type on other topics is an open front.

Obviously, the response is to start by writing a work. Then, you are writing a textbook and you realize that the first textbook you are writing will probably not be so good.
