WTF?

Get your book published

(from http://www.small-businessmarketinginfo.com/)

Finding a publisher can be difficult, especially for children's books. There are good and bad news. The bad news is that you can receive hundreds of publishers to send your manuscript to the best deals. And if you're already a published author, is likely to bear the cost of some publications. The good news is that publishers once again that there is a handwritten document. Editori almost prefer now is to send a proposalE-mail. This makes it much easier and cheaper for publishers to contact. However, you need your proposal to be perfect and that takes time.

Do not waste your time sent a proposal to a publisher that specializes in this type of book. She is not to change their minds and they receive hundreds of proposals each week. So watch out research publishers. Search for books within individual companies of your type. Often you can start using the keywordsFor your book title and content. Some of the larger companies have departments for specific genres. Search for "Science Fiction, Self Help, children, or any kind the book is too. Refine your search to publishers to publish your book and I kind of ongoing observations. "Once you find a publishing system and specializes in general, be prepared to contact them.

Some people prefer to seek First literary agent. While they want to find literary agents and publishers are writers for beginners, the method is not often successful. literary agents looking for authors who publish with headquarters in a particular genre. If you have never been published before, this opportunity is successfully getting an agent for his first novel, badly. How to find a publisher, being represented by an agent requires an excellent proposal and only chance. In the meantime, we can and should go ahead and contactPublishers> alone. You can always try later an agent.

Each editor brings his specific way of receiving information. This means you have to search every publisher on the Internet. Find something that says. "Submission Guidelines" This will tell you exactly what to send, and how to send it. Read carefully. If you are looking for a signature that is you, forget and move along. If your book seems to be a good fit with itsPublishing interests, create a proposal suitable to their guidelines. Some publishers are very diligent in rejecting the proposals of the author, the address is not required any content to the particulars. Do not take lightly.

First step is to develop a proposal for a fantastic book. The proposals are very specific information in a very specific format. They can not do this and if your proposal is rejected. In the absence of other directions, your proposal shouldcontains a table of contents, Internet sales, biography, outline, chapter titles, market analysis, competitive analysis, marketing strategies. Every part of this proposal is crucial. Take your time and use of at least one page for each topic content. The synopsis may require multiple pages. Sometimes, the Verlag or request more chapters of the first three chapters. Read their submission requirements exactly. Tell them that your book (buy and market analysisSales on the Internet), because it is better than similar books (competitive analysis) and how to convince people to buy it (marketing strategies). Take your time and give each topic its own page. If you're still not sure what to write, with the lowest Internet efforts. There are many available.

Publishers receive hundreds of submissions every day and remove if you can not follow your instructions carefully. Remember, you must not only wintheir attention, they also need to feel like your kind of book. Submit a proposal for a fiction-horror novel by a publisher specializing in books for children is a waste of time for everyone. Even if you find the right publisher for your work, you must convince the publisher to which the public can enjoy your book, who bought it and how it sells.

Purchase lists publishers on the web. Use keywords to find publishers for your topic and genre.Some companies sell a list of publishers. We basically have access to. Plan for the Internet to hundreds of publishers on the Internet. That's right a few hundred. Published, how to get a job. Your proposal is your resume. The best is, the more will get interviews. The best post, as have more positive reactions. The first offer is not necessarily the best. And in this world, patience is definitely a virtue. E ' can take months or years. But I guarantee … more suggestions please post every week, the faster they are published. Two or three proposals a week for not only do the job.

You can not agree with the first publisher to accept your book, especially if it is a vanity publisher. Publishing industry today can be a bit difficult to understand '. Traditional publishers publishers to turn in the vanity. Just a couple of traditionalPublishers> offers you a contract without asking for money, unless you are the author successfully. But it can happen and you can certainly negotiate the cost.

Traditional publishers have a great attribute. To print your book store, contract with distributors to use and their means of influence to do so quickly to all major retail ads. They will market your book in a way that would be difficult to achieve alone.And they have distribution channels that do not. With self-publishing or vanity publishing, you should do what on your computer. If you simply want the table, have a nice book with your name for the coffee, then the vanity publication may be in order. But when people want to read it, a traditional publisher is more appropriate.

Then there is the thorny issue of marketing. Many of vanity or self-publishing print publication of the bookbut not in the market. Yes, it will be in their online catalog. But how many people read it? Who is your book on the websites of Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble, Target and Wal-Mart job? As your book in Europe, Africa, South America and Asia will be sold? If you distribute? About the sales process and pay for shipping? Who is promoting his book at book fairs around the world? Those who produce radio, television and viral marketing on the Internet? These are all reasons whyTraditional publishers are the best way to go. You will also receive royalties twice a year, a good feeling.

Send any publication of an e-mail cover sheet that the reader will be hooked on your book. Explain why this particular publisher is a good fit with your book (yes, you have to do for the publication of research to do so). If possible, add your suggestion. If the publisher does not accept attachments, then you have the cover sheet e-mail and hope to use forTo respond to a request for proposal. But there is another alternative.

While most publishers are reluctant to open an attachment from a stranger (or?), Do not hesitate to open a connection to the Internet. To create web pages of beds for your book and put it in your cover e-mail. It's easy and free. Anyone can create a website for a book (use free service like Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, Word Press, Geocities, etc..) Create a page overview of features and reasons that madePeople buy it. Then embed the links for the site in your e-mail to the publisher. While many publishers are afraid of opening attachments from strangers, none of which are almost afraid to open a web page.

I put four websites for my book and I have a couple of interesting articles, too. This lasted about three days to create. It cost nothing. In fact, some large Internet companies like Google, you should have to pay per click advertising on your site.Instead of paying for web development, and create the money earned from the sale of advertising for them.

The more often you have a suggestion for a publisher, you will be better integration with Internet connections in the cover e-mail. Again, this is a very simple process. In many email programs that you can use Word as your editor, right-click on any word and then select the button "hyperlink." If the reader clicks on the word (with compression of the Control key), theWebsite will appear in your browser. Within your website, you can create a tab or a link for the suggestion, and your biography. Or you can write a proposal on the load side. This site may provide links to other sites that review and sell your book in more detail.

Not to be discouraged. Pub is a numbers game. You may need to get send a hundred proposals a good offer and you may need to get three quotes before you are satisfied. This means you needsend a three hundred tips for getting the right offer. You want a publisher and regulations suited to your book and with the right financing. I had already Publishing offers four, before I was convinced that I had to offer the best. Be very, very patient.

Please note that the editors lack integrity. There are a few bad apples in every industry. Be aware that the work of publishers, you have to pay to have your analysis orbe processed. And 'natural for the service fee, or refer you to an affiliate, you provide the billing service. Some publishers are very happy to put the book in print, free of charge or for a "nominal fee for printing." These publishers can do little or no marketing outside. You pay a fee and will print your book and give you some copies. But do not expect to see your book on Amazon, Borders and Barnes & Noble. Do not look for them on the shelves of localBookstore. You could not even a reseller. If you do not have a dealer, your book is not on the shelves of libraries and will not see the use of the internet pages of the popular shops.

You can check suspicious motor publishers with their name on Google or other search robust. If the search reveals a number of negative comments from the authors, then you know that this agent is not for you. One of the companies willing to publish my book before could have time to read it. On the Internet I discovered that thousands of writers are now very happy with the content publishers. Some of these publishers are not misleading, but offer little in return for a signed contract. With the release, as in life generally, if it sounds too good to be true, is not likely. Even if your name is not Stephen King or Tom Clancy, probably towards the cost of printing and> Books. If this is the case, make sure that your company pays for your book market after (if not just to have a book display on your desktop is). Warranty!

If you have a publisher to offer that you'd like to have a lawyer you can see, which is preferably an experienced attorney client. In the meantime, you need a publishing contract research on the Internet. Look carefully at each contract. Be prepared to renegotiate parts of it. MyThe publishers have agreed to certain marketing activities that can add ordered. In return, I agreed, but some are removed, increasing the potential for commercialization. It 's a give and take relationship that benefits both parties. Be willing to negotiate on the finer points of the contract.

Traditional publishing contract fee can be anywhere between 10% to 24%, but often in the range of 12-18%. Royalties are usually paid every six months and are counted only for the retail sector. My Publisher provided a good license and was also my novel, I could quickly on Amazon Kindle listed as a book. License fees for Kindle books are the same percentage of hardcover and paperback sales. Unless you want is a good book on the table, nothing is more important than sales. And nothing is more important for distribution as marketing and sales. Focus on those aspects in your contract negotiations.

Some authors prefer to use> Publishing Agent. If your name is James Michener, good luck. Real estate agents often take a chance on an unknown, although the book is already in print. A good agent can greatly increase sales. From this perspective, is a useful concept. Of course it is a certain percentage of the fee back. My feeling is that if you get an agent, only helps your goal a reality. However, spending too much time trying to find an agent, instead of getting a closePublishers. Once published, you can always watch later for an agent.

Finally, after obtaining a publishing contract, ready to be self-help book market. This means that you contact local bookstores and retail outlets. Request for book signings in stores. For newspaper articles about your book. Conduct public speaking events and tours of the book. Marketing is time consuming and often frustrating. But not the editor should do, especially ifAre you a new author. Be prepared to do your business. The harder your commitment, the higher the cost of an overhaul.
