Authors & Writers, Have You Written a Book?
Self Publish or Not?
As every writer knows, it is usually a long road to publishing your novel or book. If you seek traditional publishing, it can seem impossible. Some writers choose to go the self-publishing route with their books.
If you take the traditional path, an excellent resource tool is the Writers Market Book, which can be ordered or found at your local library. It can also be found online for a modest monthly fee at: http://www.writersmarket.com/Default.aspx There, you can find listings of publisher contact information and submission guidelines.
I chose to go with lulu.com and am fairly happy with the product. The book is professionally done, well bound, and looks nice. However, I found the cover templates very limiting and I am not sure yet about the promotional tools. Time will tell. I am less than pleased that the ISBN number is not really mine to use with a different publisher.
