Stop Being a Poor Writer: How to Publish a Book

Publishing a book can be an exciting and profitable endeavor, but many people don't know how to get started. This is a big roadblock for many aspiring authors. Fortunately, it is not too hard to publish once you know what to do. Here is a simple guide on how to publish a book.

Step 1 - Research publishers

Before you can send your book off, you need to know where to send it! Coming up with a suitable list of publishers' names and addresses is the first step. Look for publishing companies that relate to the type and genre of your book (fiction, self-help, etc.).

Step 2 - Put together your publishing package

Here is what you should include in your book package: a well-written cover letter that describes the book, a good sample of your book such as a riveting chapter or section, and a nice, clean, attractive envelope. If your book is thoroughly edited and complete, you can include the entire manuscript.

This is probably the single most important step in understanding how to publish a book. Without a clean, solid, presentable book that has been edited and checked thoroughly for errors, you will not stand out from the crowd, and your book will have a higher chance of being rejected.

Step 3 - Wait for replies

Once you have sent the package with your publishing materials, wait 2-3 weeks for a reply before sending follow-up letters. If your package gets little response, you may want to consider hiring an editor to help you improve your book package.

These are the three main steps you should follow in order to learn how to publish a book. Remember that it takes time and patience to become an established author. The sooner you get started forging a solid relationship with a publishing company, the sooner you will see success and profits from your books.
