How to Write my own Book and get it PublishedWhere can I write my own book and get it published?
Writing like a writer, publishing like a publishers
The Quora response to the issue of "What is a pro-author?" is standard: There is a fee payable to a pro author for supplying her work. I' d continue the definitions and say a pro author is someone who earns his livelihood by letter. Anybody can call himself a novelist, but the test is the pay.
Professionally means remunerated. My first self-released publication was in 2006. I have since released many texts under aliases at Amazon, in the iBookstore, on Kobo, etc.. At the moment I have an annual license fee of about $3,000 on board, or about $250 per year. I don't live on my own work, but I complete my life this way.
Through the widest possible definitions above - "Professional funds paid" -- I have felt entitled to say that I have been a journalist for the last eleven years. A much greater part of my profession as a author is due to the fact that I am a hard-working editor and supporter of my work. I' ll keep up to date with the changes in the self-publishing sector and continuously adapt my cannon to make the most of new possibilities.
I' m making my own books. I' m doing my own publicity, I' m doing my own blourbs, sending out my own reviews, monitoring my own sells and everything else. I am "the writer", the performer when I am typing, and my sole emphasis is on it. As soon as the letter is finished, I put on my "publisher's hat".
" So I stop to think like "the writer" and concentrate objective on the final work as a marketable work. I' m doing my best to bring "the work of the author" to the widest possible audience of paid audience for this one-of-a-kind work. At that time I did not yet publish anything, but I did publish many things in journals (sometimes for a fee, more often for "contributors"), in a painstaking, systemic filing for them.
"Writings " write, "The Publisher" publish. That' the ding-a-ling that my inner editor won' stop ringing: Not only does Ev Williams offer to reward authors for their work after their commitment. We are offered to be treated as professionals. I' ve published eBooks on Amazon before KDP was simple (it's simple now, just have faith).
However, the early blast of indie editing that followed Amazon and then Apple's hug of eBooks.... Now was a good age! On average, I paid $1,000 a months in emoluments for a while. Within just a few years, the Indie publisher invaded the Bastille of the Big Five, and the porters toppled.
However, authors no longer need their blessings to enter the market and be good for themselves. Independent publishers democratised the publisher sector and released authors. Amazon, and then Apple, made a choice to handle all authors as professionals authors. They' ve decided to put their faith in us to produce worthwhile reading novels.
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing was the largest bookshop in the word before it started. Following the founding of KDP, Amazon was still the largest bookshop in the run. It was also a huge commercial space for freelance authors. However, it is now also a huge commercial space for freelance authors. Either being remunerated for writing is not your own objective, or at least it is not an objective that is currently on the time axis or on this plate.
There will be many authors going down this road, I anticipate. There will be many dealing with member-only histories. They will block a few items, their best work, but they will not block them for long, and they will not block too many at once, which will limit their possible income. You will be remunerated, but the amount will never seem significant enough to take it seriously.
Some few will be experimenting with the affiliate program as a means of creating music. They see themselves as troops in Ev's revolutionist armies and are privately involved in the partner program's succes. They will work diligently to release a lot of serious work. They will work to develop a fan base among the members and they will work to promote the advantages of non-members.
Early sign up for the affiliate program, but I didn't finish any tales. Waiting and observing what other authors did, what results they achieved, how they shared their experiences. I' m currently author number two. I' ve finished a few tales. I' ve got a fairly good payoff, and I'm looking at my affiliate programashboard, how to pull an arm or scratch a game lot.
Now I find my inner editor who says "the writer" in me to relax and take charge of it. He suggests switching to author number three. He points out that after being a remunerated pro-author for over a decennium, he has failed to take full advantage of Ev2s friendly offering, is simply.... well... nonprofessional.
Over and over again he points out that I have no problems paying for my book at Amazon or restricting my entry to what is in these booklets to those who are paying to study them. It would not affect me. The editor within me is right?-?for now?-?for me. Perhaps you could begin as Author #3 and work your way back to Author #1.
Perhaps you'll begin as Writer #2 and remain happy there forever. Wellcome to the marvelous realm of indie editing! Exclusiveness is only required if this particular font is registered with Kindle Unlimited, which is not the case with me. You' re your own editor. I have already begun with the storytelling in my own set A Word In Edgewise:
All of my novels have either been published in commercially available compilations or will soon be available in eBook and pocket book sizes at Amazon.com and other on-line stores. Feature film is one of the ways I earn my livelihood as a novelist. It' like when I bought my book at Amazon.
Now most (!) of the new tales I publish will be members only.
