Many authors don’t run into a lot of issues when actually writing the manuscript for their book. The challenges really begin when it comes time to publish it. With the internet being a potentially great venue for book publishing and selling, a lot more people are now attempting to become authors and trying to publish their writings. There are several options for getting a book published.
A lot of writers lose their confidence when going through the route of mainstream publishing. This is where an author has to get their manuscript approved by a publishing Company before it can go into production.
Being successful at this has become even more of a challenge since the internet has come into being. This is because the web has created a great deal more competition for publishers. Based on this publishing companies are very strict about what types of books they will consider publishing and are especially cautious about taking on new authors.
You can decide to self publish your book. This means you need to choose a good book printer. The entire responsibility of making sure this is done correctly is with you. You don’t have the professional expertise of a publisher to make sure it gets done right. It can be costly and then on top of this you have the marketing.
With digital publishing it is a whole new world for publishers. While it seems easy it can also have its own challenges. Within this option you need to choose a e-Book graphic designed. Then you have to find and use some distribution channels.
Print On Demand Publishing
This can be a great choice for the new author who doesn’t want to invest a ton of money with the risk of having a lot of paid for published books sitting in a warehouse. Authors can have a specific number of books printed according to what they need to meet their sales.
These are some great book publishing choices but they also each have their own challenges.
