How to get my book published?
I have finished a my book My Journey to New Beginnings, would like to get it to a good publisher. But I don't have the money to paid, what can I do? If any one can help, that would be great. My book is about having gastrobypass and losing over 235 pounds and now I am a new me. I would love to hear from anyone that can point me in the right direction. I want to encourage others, that if I can get healthy, and one can. What would be the best choice to do, on your way to good health. Thank you, hope to hear soon. God Bless Nancy
It's simple acutally write the complete book, and then edit it, if you've done that I'd go and get a writer's market, and look through the listing of publishers who do accept non-fiction.
The only thing that you would pay for in this case is postage, and the price of the book, which over the years has become priceless for me.
Write a great query letter and I believe from what you are saying that you can get this book publsihed by a publisher.
Best of luck,
I'm trying the same, but mine is about addictions and I was told that I should search for an agent that represents author on addictions. They have no fee except for postage and maybe a couple of calls. I was offered a couple of times from publishers to get my story published, but they wanted like $4000.00 . and that's not good to pay eigher so I was told. Don't pay a cent to anyone they should give an advance to you if they think your submission is great. This is what I have been told.
Best of luck to you and your journey
I chose to self publish my first novel through Lulu.com. After submitting many queries to agents as well as publishers, I have found that writing is far the easier road than publishing. I have aslo found than alot of companies ask for a ridiculous amount of money for publishing as well as for editing. I decided to self publish as a way of getting my name out there and to see my work in print. I am pleased with the job Lulu did on my book and to hld it in my hand and read t like a "real book," is priceless to me. The downside of self publishing is no advertising and marketing. You are on your own. I have started writing blogs and advertising on my sites, Facebook, Myspace, ect. I am checking into marketing. I have joined writing groups on Cafemom ect. I contacted my local newspaper about my book and they are running on article on me soon:)
