For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
As a newbie to the publication industry, you have to accept the fact that initially there will be a lot of hurdles to overcome. You definitely want to avoid them by not wasting your time or anyone else’s time. Online book publishing has its fair share of ups and lows most of which are dependent on the content of your book. This is the reason why it is vital that you know whatever happens is a learning curve and doors of success are always open.
As a writer myself, I would like to share a few facts and strategies that may come in handy while you publish your first book.
Keep the Subject Vivid
This is a harsh fact, but publishers often do not consider quality or the amount of hours that you have invested in creating the manuscript which sits on their table. Their main aim is to make money just like any other human being. In order to garner their attention, keep the subject matter vivid. Make sure that you spend some time on your research before you get words on paper. The subject that you choose must be focused on whether people would like to read about it or not. Although it is an uphill task, I am sure you will come up with something catchy.
Reason Why the Book Can Sell
Book Publishers will want to know the reason why your book will sell. They are not interested in knowing what skills you possess in writing and how you can “play with the words”. Factors like target market play their role here. The more subsequent evidence you present about the same, higher are the chances of your book getting published.
Be Prepared For Rejection
Based on the facts you presents and the skills you showcase, the publisher may decide whether to publish your book or not. In terms of monetary aspect, did you know that they make four times the money you make by selling your book? Now, that can be saddening for many.
Regardless, know this that writing and having a book published is an enthralling experience. So, keep up the work and know that the sky is the limit.
