Get Your Book Published - You Can Find Help

Updated on July 17, 2009

Get Your Book Published

To get your book published, be patient and shop for a publisher online. Most reputable publishers have web sites and welcome inquiries from aspiring authors. Be prepared for rejection; it's extremely unlikely that your first contact will respond with an enthusiastic "yes".

Specialty authors require specialty publishers. A publisher is typically plugged in to a specific niche or set of niches. Their distribution networks are tailored to certain types publications. A publisher specializing in Children's books is unlikely to be able to help with a car repair book. On the other hand, it never hurts to build contacts; just don't expect miracles.

Self-publishing is always an option, but reaching a niche audience can be problematic. Unless you are already plugged in to the niche, a experienced publisher offers the wealth of contacts that may be what you need to break in to the market.

Whatever you do, don't give up. Chip away a little each day. Resolve to contact at least one publisher a week, either via email, telephone, or in-person. Wallpaper your office with rejection notices; it worked for Beverly Capozzoli and Mark Guthrie!
