And you thought it would be easy. After all, the story’s been inside your head for a long time. Now you’re up to the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a 50,000-word rough draft in a restricted time period. Can you do it? Others have, but is that the surest way of seeing your book in print? Writing is bringing it one step closer, but the most difficult part of the journey is yet to come: publishing! Judy Penz Sheluk’s Finding Your Path to Publication will help you maneuver the minefield of pitfalls in the vast and diverse world of publishing. Once you get out there with your 50,000-word (more or less) book, you’ll start to understand why and how the art of publishing can be so overwhelming. It’s more than just finding the publisher that’s a good fit for both you and your book. It’s about knowing what to expect from start to finish so you don’t get scammed or worse. Believe me when I tell you that even a good publishing contract can be fraught with unimaginable red flags. Been there; done that.
Judy Penz Sheluk’s Finding Your Path to Publication: A Step-by-Step Guide is the first book in the Step-by-Step Guides series. The author has done the research and shares her knowledge and experience in this easy-to-follow and thorough guide to publishing. Even if you’ve published before, this guide will help you avoid repeating past mistakes and make you more publishing savvy on the do’s and don’ts. The book is well laid out, easy to read, and full of useful information. There’s more to publishing than the standard traditional publisher of years gone by. They still exist, but now the options are broader and more complex. There are independent and small publishers, hybrid, self-publishing, and online social platforms. They’re all valid, but are they right for you? And whom do you trust as legitimate? This book will help you find your path to publishing success.
