I want to Write a Book now whatI' d like to write a book now, which I don't want to.
Hi! I was just writing a children's book! What now?
Hi! I just wrote a children's book! So what am I supposed to do? Well, now that you wrote it, what do you do with it? And if you just want to exchange it with your loved ones, there are Lulu.com and other companies that can help you get your book printed - just the right way to get it into a small group.
If you want a bigger crowd, it gets more difficult. Now, the first thing to do is make sure you know what book you wrote. Childrens publishers can be roughly subdivided into several major areas: illustrated textbooks, chapters, secondary school textbooks and young people.
These are some useful hyperlinks to help you find out what you wrote: The majority of writers and illuminators of publications have spent years studying their trade. Okay, I managed to make my book as good as I could. Where can I get my book in bookshops, libaries and colleges? Right now, the best way for your book to get the widest possible public is to search for a commercially owned publishing house.
Comercial publishing houses - firms such as HarperCollins and Scholastic - are paying writers and graphic designers for the right to pub... It' very, very difficult to buy a book from a business publishing house - they only take what they think is best of the best. While some publishing houses consider submitting works directly from writers and graphic designers, most choose to have work from Frahlingen.
The Frahling is a pro who not only uses his contacts to editorial staff to sell his work ( "it is his task to know which editorial staff are looking for which type of book"), but also helps his customers in all facets of their work.
Every book is not represented by every agency, just as not every publishing house is publishing every kind of book. They have to research a lot about which agencies are representing which types of book and what their own interests are. And then it will take a while for spooks to review their entries, order scripts, review them, and determine whether they want to present their work.
The good thing is that while you're waiting, you can work on your next storyline and improve your abilities. But I don't think I want to go that way. So what else can I do?
Self-editing means that you are not only the writer, but also the editor of your book. This means you take charge of everything (or engage someone else) related to your book release - editing, reformatting, creating a book jacket, sending an e-book release to retailers, reformatting a printer/work with a printing service provider, and doing your own sales.
There can be a great deal of work, but some writers like to take full artistic direction in all facets of their book. The difference to self-publications or self-publications is that the publisher's targeted markets are not the readership. Writers who want to get a book in the printing business are the targeted markets of the tabloid printing industry, and they earn their living with up-and-coming writers, not with newcomers.
Therefore, they have no interest in whether your book is sold. There may be good to bad or no book available, so it is very important to look at the book you have published so you know what you are getting.
