I Wrote a Book how do I get it PublishedI' ve written a book, how do I get it published?
You' ve written a book. And now what?
Occasionally my mates, library owners and even foreigners come up to me and tell me that they have composed a children's novel - and they ask me: "How did you publish yours? Now, publication is difficult - but not inconceivable. So, you were writing a work. Begin with Jennifer Laughran's Word Count Post.
It is not inconceivable to publish a 3,000-word textbook in today's markets.... no, it really is. The 15,000-word novel "Young Adults" is simply not long enough. When you are still with me and you are not forgotten (or your number of words matches the one you write for), then GREAT!
There' s not a unique shortcut to this, but if you join the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, you will be able to find workshop, review groups, meetings, retreats and more -> and that will help you refine your work. When you are sure that your script is the best it can be, it is a good idea to find a place to submit it!
If you are looking for an agency, try to find a copy of the latest Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market and SCBWI The Book. They will help you find out which publishing houses are looking for what and which agencies are looking for whom.
Not yet, though. Inquiry is the commercial correspondence you are sending to the agents or editors asking if they want to study your manuscripts (oh, I get it? asking=querying). From there there are hyperlinks to other pages that point to others that point to an infinite number of others - all populated with help in typing requests.
Well, now that you have some direction from what you are in for, you' re reading Delilah S. Dawson's 25 paces to being a conventionally released writer. Third, it really goes through every stage on the way to release - ups, downs and downs. When you' come this far, you're really good to go.
