How to get your book published?
It is not an easy job to find book publisher for your new creation. Once you find one, convincing him to publish your book is even more tasking. Book and magazine publishers spend a lot of their time buying a book copy. You may get your book published through stringers to save all these hassles. You may visit online in order to accelerate your publisher search.
Book publishers comprise one-sixth of the total number of publishers in the United States. Most books are published by a few large book publishers. Many publishers are specialised in that they possess their book publishing knack in a specific domain. Another option is to be your own publisher. You don’t have to find, convince or pay anyone to publish your works. Just invest in the publishing equipment and go for it. The growth of independent publishing in the U.S. has been huge over the last couple of years.
Within the book publishing industry, the publisher of record may vary from the actual publisher. If the ISBN is registered under your name, you are the publisher on record whether or not you are the real publisher. One of the disadvantages of ease of publication is that anybody and everybody is becoming an author. The benchmark of being a book author has fallen steeply. There is no dearth of imposters in the book publishing industry.
It is not easy to create a book that looks professional but is authored and published by a bunch of newbies. If your book has poor content, don’t expect it be read by even a handful of people. But even if it’s the best, there’s a good chance that a single copy is not bought. Quality is not a sure-fire sign of success in this industry. Just as people vary, their tastes differ, and a book that doesn’t appeal to them won’t be popular even if it is really good.
If you want your book to be read by masses, make sure there’s an e-copy published on the internet. Make it search friendly through search engines like Google and stores like Amazon. With an efficient SEO done, it will feature in the top results. Keep your title as unique and interesting as possible. Try to know the pulse of the masses. Accordingly, decide on the title and not something that you fancy. Creating an e-book is very easy. You can even do it yourself. Nowadays, independent publishing is the best alternative to the traditional book publishing deals.
Publishers usually prefer not to publish books written by new authors. Partnering with a co-author who is at least known or more successful than you may get you an initial take-off momentum, but for lasting success, you need to carve your own distinct niche. How long can you survive in a dynamic world of book authoring if you don’t keep on entertaining the masses on a regular basis? People have a very volatile memory unless you have some unique point in your books that they can register in their minds or an emotionally connecting point that can anchor them to your books.
Readers have a lot of options nowadays, and it is difficult to tell one good book from the other. If you want your book to be read worldwide, you really need to have a strong network of publishers and intermediaries that help you with international publishing. Translation into multiple local languages and other marketing considerations must be well taken care of before venturing into global book markets.
