Publish It ... But How?
It’s written… and now you want to publish it.
Carol Adler’s New Book
How to Publish & Market a Book Without Jumping Off a Cliff…
Maybe you’ve already learned through trial and error that most of the well-known publishers—the ones that can get your books into Barnes & Noble, Borders and other large chain bookstores—the publishers that get the kind of reviews and media slots that can make a book into a best-seller—do not accept unsolicited manuscripts.
That means if you have your heart set on publishing with one of these companies, you must first find a literary agent who will submit your manuscript for you.
You’ve written to 20, 30, more 30 literary agents. You sent them a book proposal, synopsis, your resume, etc., and now you’re waiting to hear from them. Just one of them.
How many weeks—months ago was that?
If you’re lucky and one or more of these overworked agents does decide to take you on as a client, the next step is for these agents to shop your manuscript.
It was celebrated American author Ray Bradbury who said: “You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.”
If you want to see your book in print during your lifetime, instead of jumping off a cliff, why not take a flying leap off the bandwagon of mainstream publishing… and instead of building wings, why not build a website and customized marketing plan?
Create a landing pad in virtual space. It will be much easier on your derrière.
Publish and market your book online.
Publish it yourself… or if you’re a busy person with no desire to get involved in all the technical details of opening up your own publishing company, co-publish it with Dandelion Books. Let them do all the work for you.
