No Matter Where You Live in the World.
Most people, at some time in their lives, have thought of writing a book. But with no way of knowing how to have it published, the idea was usually passed over and forgotten.
And the old, frustrating way of trying to become a published author was to first write a book and then start sending out letters and sample chapters to as many agents and publishers as you possibly could.
Sadly, out of every 50,000 manuscripts a publisher receives, only 1 or 2 are actually published - AND it usually takes 3 to 4 years before your book will go to press.
And then, after all that, it's STILL your responsibility to market your own book - at your own expense - while the publisher saves their marketing efforts for their best-selling authors.
And if that's not hard enough; if your book sales are considered by the publisher to be low - say, less than forty thousand a year - then your book is quickly withdrawn and listed as "out-of-print."
So don't waste your time sending your manuscript out to hundreds of publishers.
Instead, publish it yourself.
The Rise of the Independent Authors
Big publishing companies only used to control things because they had all the money.
It costs thousands to print a huge run of books, something most authors can never afford.
But now it's not necessary to print and ship so many books at once, which means that all authors can now publish all their own books.
The financial tide has changed as publishers struggle to compete with the rise of all the indie authors, who are no longer chained to the big publishing companies.
This is also fantastic news for readers who are discovering so many new books by indie authors – books that would have been overlooked by all the publishing companies who are only interested in finding the next million dollar best-seller.
And now even more people are realising that just because a book doesn't have a huge publishing company behind it, doesn't mean it's not a good book.
In fact even the publishing companies don't always know a good book when they see it.
As an example. JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was turned down by 9 publishing companies. And the story goes that it was about to be turned down again until someone working in the publisher’s office pulled the manuscript out of the reject pile for something to read at lunchtime and realised what a great story it was.
And Jack Canfield's Chicken Soup for the Soul series, which is now a multi-million dollar industry, was turned down over one hundred times.
The internet has started a publishing revolution.
Authors have been self publishing their own books successfully for over one hundred years.
Just look at this list of just a few of the well-known authors who all began by self publishing their own book -
George Bernard Shaw
Christopher Paolini (Eragon)
ALL these authors began their careers by self publishing their own book.
And you can do the same. All you need is access to a computer and an internet connection. There’s never been a better time to easily publish a book and sell it internationally.
And the really great thing about being an author is that it never has to end. Not only can you utilize modern publishing methods to keep your book ‘in print’ for as long as you want, but you can expand your writing talent and publish more and more books every year – or every month if you’ve got plenty of time to write.
Holding your first printed book in your hands is one of life's most thrilling feelings, and the more books you write, the more times you can relive that feeling with the first copy of every book.
And when someone asks you what you do for a living and you say
"I'm an author"
that's also a great feeling.
When you’ve written a book and you’re ready to publish, the questions you have go something like this:
• What do I do now?
• What do I do with my manuscript?
• How do I get my book published?
• How do I get my book reviewed?
• How much is this all going to cost me?
• How do I cut through all the information on publishing?
• How do I get my book sold on Amazon.com?
• How do I get my book into the major book stores?
…and the list goes on.
Well what you need, and probably want, is a simple answer to what you should do once your manuscript has been edited and proof read and come to its final draft version.
The problem with reading anything about self-publishing is that there’s conflicting statements on almost any web site and it’s all written in so much jargon that the more you read the more confused you become. But this book will cut through all the technical terms and publishing jargon and help you to understand the different opportunities open for you to self-publish your book.
