How do you get published?

I have written a great book but I don't know how to get it published.


Answer by  monkeyz (3150)

You may need an agent, depending on what kind of book it is. Otherwise you can try submitting it to publishers who accept unsolicited manuscripts (without an agent).

To get published one must contact a credible publishing company. Such a company can be found online and for a small fee will take the work of an artist and bind it together. If the work of art is good enough in the eyes of people that it is shown to, it will have more credibility.

The first step to getting your book published is to get an agent: very few book publishers accept unsolicited submissions. Think about what books are similar to yours, and research which agents represent those authors.

Congratulations! The best way is to find an agent. Send a query letter to an agent that markets the genre of your novel (i. e. , you don't want to send a sci-fi to an agent that only does chick lit). The agent will then find a publisher for your novel.

Do some research on the internet and submit it to book companies, or even mail it to them. Some companies will except books scripts through the mail.

This is difficult. You will need to submit letters to companies, get approval, then submit a sample. They will give you instructions from that point onward; do not send samples without requests.

This is simply a luck type of situation. You take it to whatever publishing company you desire, and if they like what they read, they'll probably publish it.

You would need to contact a literary agent or a publisher who handles the type of book that you have written. However, it might take several submissions.
