Here are a few things you need to know about publishing a book:

  • Conventional Publishing: The traditional way of publishing a book is talking to a publisher and making a deal with them. If the publisher likes your book, they will agree to a deal. This deal will include the rights to publish the story and the royalties you will receive from any sales. In order to get to this point, it is important to find an agent that has the proper connections and is able to find a publisher interested in the type of books you are writing.
  • Self-Publishing: Another option is to publish your books on your own. There are many avenues you can explore in regards to self-publishing. An affordable way to get your book onto the market is to make it an e-book, as this will allow you to avoid expensive printing and logistical costs. However, if you want your book in paper or hardback, then you need to find a vanity publisher. These are book manufacturers that will publish your work as long as you can afford their services.
  • Choosing the Right Option: Both traditional and conventional publishing has its benefits. However, if you are not interested in selling your book across the globe and you would only like to have a few copies for friends and family, then self-publishing or vanity publishing is a good option. But if you would like to make a living off of the stories you are creating, then it is a good idea to find a publisher that can help get your book onto the market.
