Publishers for first Time Authorslishers for first authors
s the first time I've really understood.
If you have completed your script or just have the sperm of a novel concept, Publisher 101 shows you how to get in touch with writers and agencies while preventing the usual first authors. Publisher 101 depicts the drastic changes that are taking place in the publishers' business as eBooks sell more and the number of physically owned bookshops declines.
The changes have an impact on the way authors do business - which means you must be ready to face a risk-averse business at a time of unsure. Eliminate disappointment - don't start the submissions procedure without being fully informed about how the sector works. You will concentrate your time and energies better, improve your prospects of succeeding and you' ll be able to decode the languages of the branch profession.
Section 2: Are you prepared to take on the publishing business?
For most publishers and agencies, this old-fashioned way of working has become a rare occurrence. Publishers who were once regarded as the "goalkeepers" of the publishing industry, who kept up the standards of what the audience was reading, are now often limited to a very small choice of work. Unauthorized scripts languished for a long time without being reread on so-called'slush stacks', and now most publishers just refused to do so.
Simultaneously, every literary'standard' mind has been completely obliterated by the emergence of self-publishing, where anyone with a computer, a text processor and an online link can be a paper writer within a few day and an eBook writer within a few-minute.
Of course, this has resulted in a deterioration in the overall condition of the text and the look of the work. If there is no concert approach to publishing, which most self-published authors have neither the knowledge nor the means, these works are more than likely wasted.
In a two-step screening procedure, we first review the samples, select the best and lightest entries, and then evaluate the full set of selected authors' work. This puts the focus back on talents and gives unfamiliar - or neglected - authors the chance to have their works reworked and created at the highest possible standard.
Then our sales force delivers a fully embedded ad campaigns customized for each product. There are two types of contract: non-contributory (traditional) and "partnership". Our editorial staff first look at each new script to offer a conventional publisher agreement. Only after our editorial staff have thoroughly examined the work can we determine which path is best suited for each one.
There are the same advantages of a partner treaty as a conventional one, but as an author you may be asked to pay a small part of the costs of publishe. Of course, all our ledgers have the same high standards of advertising and sales regardless of the nature of the contracts we have.
We' re proud to have given many first-time authors the best possible starting point in their new careers in the typing world. You will see not only new authors, but also those who keep publishing with us. Through our open submission policies we can offer a wide spectrum of works by different authors, making our title lists a colorful and unrestricted offer of high-quality literature and non-fiction.
