For anyone who is passionate about writing publishing his/her work is essential. If you plan on getting your book published here are few steps you need to follow:
Decide what kind of media you want to reach
Due to internet one doesn’t have to reach the most popular Melbourne book publishers to get their book done. Today you can simply follow a particular format and write your book and publish it on sites such as Amazon instead of getting printed copies of it. This is cheaper than traditional method and also helps to reach out to wider audience as traditional books are limited due to geographical barriers. However, many famous authors such as J.K ROWLING have chosen traditional form of book publishing. This requires a huge investment and if people like your writing then you are likely to be very successful and famous. However, traditional media would require you to find an agent and most importantly you have to categorize yourself properly to avoid any misunderstandings. Also if you label yourself wrongly, publishers might refuse to print it. So this is a segment which you need to be extra careful about. You should choose the media which best suits your budget and helps to target the audience you want to reach out to.
Clear out all the obstacles
It can be very hard to get your book published in one go. Many publishing companies are very choosy with their material and it is very rare where an author doesn’t face any form of rejection at all. So it is advisable for all the authors to have a back up. For example instead of contacting just one agent, send samples of your book to number of agents to cover all your bases. However, make sure that you don’t give them the whole book as there is a risk of copying your work. Make sure you choose trustworthy people. You should make sure not to give up when your work gets rejected. Instead you should focus on getting better. For example if two to three publishers have rejected your work then you could work in another form of writing. Perhaps you might be better off writing fiction instead of nonfiction, but never let rejection stop you. Most of the famous authors today have got rejected before not just once but multiple times.Many authors today try to reach wide audience through internet, because it is cheap and the process is much simpler compared to traditional method. So if you are a new writer you could try your luck through e books and if they do well then you are less likely to get rejected from other people such as publishing media.
