How to become an Author of a BookBecome an author of a book?
Successfully writing in three stages
The most unreleased contributors who ask me for help are focusing on the first edition, and I get the catch-22 with getting an agent: want someone who was previously released, but how can a someone be released without an agency? but they found a way to do it.
Trust me when I tell you that spies keep signing new writers. It' s difficult to find an operative, but it is important to realize that of the three above mentioned stages, the first one is the simplest. Today, agencies function as a "filter" system for the publisher. Every script sent to a publisher had tens of thousand scripts and question-mails checked by agencies.
It'?s just that they' re always looking for well-written citations. When you can't find a substitute for your script, don't put the guilt on the operatives. This could be the questioning note or gender or even the script (egad!) that led to the refusal by the spy, and it could mean that you should try something new, either by working on and enhancing your novel or by creating a new one.
I had two unreleased, never published books and another book under my waistband before I started writing the notebook. I concede that it is not simple to get an operative, but to succeed in anything takes time. When you can't hold out on the first move, the simplest move, how will you respond to the tougher moves when they come?
You think you'd be luckier having an asset, but the asset can't even buy the novel to a publishers? And if it's released and nobody purchases it? And if so, it is important not only to like the journalist you will be working with, but also to find one who is enthusiastic about your work.
It' a hard decision, but often it's the right one, because it' s infectious and could mean that the publishing house takes a bigger risk to promote your work. To have sold out the book is by far the most challenging of all. The front of the shop is ruled by brands and the front of the shop is ruled by theirs.
Nowadays, there seem to be only three ways for an author to get on the bestseller lists with his first novel: have the Oprah-accredited novel (most if not all of the novels she has selected for Oprah's Book Club have become bestsellers, first authors or not, like Jacqueline Mitchard's Low End of the Ocean); (2) have widely and generously acclaimed the novel by critics, sparking the interest of the big press, like Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier; or (3) are writing a novel that has good verbal propaganda, i.e,
The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells is a well-written book that folks love to write and love and feel forced to tell others about. That doesn't mean you can't succeed with a later novel.
