How to find a good PublisherThis is how you find a good publisher
Choosing the best publisher
I have recently placed several publishing houses, and each of these has been fortunate enough to have several publishing houses interested in them. My writers and I were able to select the best publisher among those interested. But since I argue with every writer who is in an "auction situation", it's more than just that.
There are 6 different reasons we consider when selecting a publisher. The publisher who purchases the work is decisive for the author's publication success. It is important to us that the journalist conveys genuine passion for the writer and his book(s). What we want is an editorial journalist who has really captured the writer and hopefully also the author's future prospects; someone who seems to appreciate the author's distinctive writing styles and wants to work with them (as distinct from someone who immediately offers suggestions for change).
Normally, if there are several listings, the agents and authors have teleconferences with each journalist. Buy-in of the entire publishing house. The editors help in communicating that not only the editors, but also distribution and marketers and everyone up to the publishers and managing directors are fond of this work.
Buying in strongly right from the start can make a big deal of a book. This is the success story of the publishing house with similar titles. We' ll look at how well other works of the same kind have been treated. We often have our own experience with this publisher so we know how distribution and distribution have been managed and we know how many copies have been distributed.
I don't have any face-to-face with this publisher, then probably another member of the Book & Search family. We' re also checking whether one of the publisher's earlier, similar titles was a bestseller. Contractual conditions of the publisher. It is a big thing and each publisher treats it differently.
When we have a selection of publishing houses, and we know for certain that one publisher is more likely than another to have more favourable contractual conditions, then that will definitely influence ours. The amount of the deposit often reflects the publisher' dedication and dedication.
And, let's be honest, a powerful monetary agreement can make a big deal in an author's lifetime. Authors opinions. Some authors have had a "dream publisher" in their minds for a long while. Publishers will be a long one with a big influence on the author's own lives, so they definitely need to talk into the choice and divide their own thoughts.
