I want to Publish my own BookI' d like to publish my own book
What can I do to publish my own book without spending a lot of time? What is the best way to find a publisher?
I' ll reiterate an answer I' ve just post, what you must have done if you want to publish (yourself) relatively quickly, and I've added information on how you can find a publisher. In the first place, what you need for self-publication (and if you are hoping to find an agency for a publisher) is a ready-to-out.
I have used CreatingSpace createspace.com Self Publishing and Free Distributions for my last two novels, CD, DVDs and couldn't be luckier. That'?s your bookkeeping. It must be reformatted to the desired format. I would suggest you find a book that you like and use its editing capabilities.
- your binding which must correspond to the book format specification. The height and width are simple, but until you know the precise number of pages in your book, you will not know the back sizing. - For your book, an ESBN. CreatingSpace will provide you with a free book that I used for my first novel, but it will identify your book as a self-published work.
I would suggest you buy your own Bowker | Bowker | Identifier Services ID. If you intend to publish more than one book, begin with the 10. You need a different mySBN for any other size of your work (e.g. pocketbook, hard cover, audio....), so consider your objectives. A lot and a lot of post-release sales support.
There' s a bunch of rubbish out there (because almost everyone can publish if they want to, and not everyone should), so don't settle for bad criticism because you press the "Publish" butt. DEFINITively order a copy of your work before you approve and publish it, even if you go page by page through the view.
You will see things you want to optimize in a hard copy of your book that you will not see there. When you are looking for a publisher, you must first find an agency. I' d suggest buying the writer's latest copywriter's book (they come out every year) or get an on-line pass http://www.writersmarket. com/because they keep up to date with the latest media and editors.
Inquiries can also be made directly to some small publishers. You can find the book/online information about whom and how to ask.
