Do you need guidance in selecting a literary agent? Of course, but you don’t need to pay “package deal prices” to ghostwriting companies for such guidance. I’ll help you target the right literary agents at the right agencies, agents who are interested in the kind of book you want to publish. I'll also explain the submission process and show you how to approach literary agents with your queries, book proposals, and manuscripts.
Your second publishing option is to select a well-respected independent press and become part of the growing “indie publishing” movement. There are dozens of respected independent publishers that will read your work even if you don’t have an agent. These publishing houses have higher acceptance rates than many large publishers but will still promote your book and place it in brick and mortar stores, from Barnes and Noble to independent neighborhood bookstores. The “indie movement” also includes small and regional presses that are open to quality work submitted directly by an author, not an agent.
Self-publishing, also known as Print-on-Demand or simply POD, is a popular publishing option that enables you to take your book straight to your audience without any middleman. It is used by people who have written almost any type of book, from novels to memoirs to platform books for businessmen and women. A good POD company will format and print your book, provide cover art, a barcode and ISBN number, and make your book available for sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in paperback and eBook format. I’ll help you select the right POD firm, one that produces a great product at the right price.
