Book publishing guides for new and known authors? Be Realistic: The self-publishing revolution has made it so that anyone with a story can publish a book, which resulted in a flood of content on top of all of the books published by traditional publishers each year, which is to say, you most likely won’t sell millions of copies or be a New York Times bestseller, but there are plenty of realistic author goals you can achieve, so be thoughtful about what goals you set for yourself and your book and then put steps in place to achieve them. Success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes dedication and business savvy.
Linked In: Develop a presence at the place for professionals to develop business contacts. Discuss topics with other authors and small publishers. Company Logo: Have a logo designed for your publishing company. Place it on every piece of correspondence, your web page and on social networking sites to spread the word. Create a Website: Obtain a domain name for your company, book title or your name. Have a website created that showcases information about your book, including excerpts, an image of your book cover and a way for book orders to be submitted back to you via the web. We recommend a company like American Author.com who can do the setup work for you.
Enter competitions. Historical romance writer Candice Hern explains one of her self-publishing tips on her blog that a contest was key to her success: As soon as I decided to try my hand at writing romance, I joined Romance Writers of America. One of the many benefits they offer unpublished members is the opportunity to enter writing contests that provide valuable feedback from judges — regional contests as well as one important national contest. I won two of the four regional contests I entered, and the winning entries for one of the contests were sent to acquiring editors.
