Literary Ladies Guide is pleased to announce the publication of Get Your Words Into the World: Comparing and Navigating Today’s Publishing Options, From Traditional to Self-Publishing and Everything in Between. This concise guide will help you sort out what path might be best for you and presents lots of free resources and links, whether you’re looking for an agent, thinking of being an “indie author,” or tempted to try short-run printing.
You’ll find plenty of “how to write a book” books, plus plenty of advice on websites. There’s also tons of advice on marketing your book once it’s produced. This book tackles the in-between part — navigating the various publishing options available in today’s ever-changing publishing landscape.
This book assumes that you have a book project that’s well in progress or just about ready to find a home in print or digital publishing. Think of this as a map that lays out how to choose not only between traditional and self-publishing and all the variants of these options as well.
We’ll cover how to find an agent, explain what hybrid publishing is about, and introduce the best routes to e-book and print-on-demand publishing.
Find your publishing path
Going from writer to author doesn’t represent an end, but is the beginning of a new path — one that can be filled with success and fulfillment or challenges and pitfalls. Or sometimes both at once! Becoming an Author with a capital A brings with it some distinctive baggage—sometimes an entire set of matched luggage.
When crossing the threshold from writer to author, there’s a sense of having reached a much longed-for destination. But as the French author Colette wrote, “Sit down and put down everything that comes into your head and then you’re a writer. But an author is one who can judge his own stuff’s worth, without pity, and destroy most of it.”
The truth is that you need not become an author to be a writer, and for some, being a writer is enough. But most everyone who writes longs to see their words in print. It’s a journey that can take you to some incredible places if you have the courage to take the first steps onto the path!
