Consider this: JK Rawling was turned down by 48,159 agents. Who knew there were than many agents to begin with! Who has the money for all that postage and who is in the mood for that much rejection? If you are new to publishing and are considering self-publishing or publishing more traditionally then this book is a good introduction to the process. The authors remind the reader that there has never been a better time when it was easier to be published. They also believe that self-publishing is a viable option. However they make sure to differentiate between vanity publishing and self-publishing. I thought the section on "do and don'ts" when dealing with a publisher who wants to see your manuscript, was invaluable. There are some tips for inspiring your writing which are a little crazy but probably strangely effective or the authors would not have mentioned them. The only problem I really see with this book is the glossary of terms. The terms are there but there is no definition. So the book ends at about 84%.
~The Rebecca Review
This often cheeky and always very British book will teach you about this novel route for aspiring writers to travel. If you've ever dreamed of creating a book that exists in the real world and that can be purchased in real bookshops by (more or less!) real people, then "Get Published" is just the ticket for you!
As the author of a popular book on creativity and the writing/publishing process called GET PUBLISHED NOW! The Step-by-Step Guide to Writing & Publishing Your First Book on Amazon Kindle, I released the trade paperback edition through CreateSpace.
But this book wonderfully shows how to take an even more hands-on approach to the publishing process.
You'll learn how to prepare your manuscript for submission, how to work with an editor, proof your book and help in the selection of paper and font for its printing--in other words, all those fantastic Old World activities that many of us are forgetting how to do in today's lightning fast digital world.
The authors clearly love books and are seeking authors who also love them. If you've ever dreamed of holding a highly quality, well-bound version of your magnum opus in your hands, then you'll discover exactly how to do that in this book!
