What the Heck is Publishing?

Poetry In Motion’s

Written Word Wednesday

We live for wicked wordplay and We'll help you design your word playground…

The number one question I get is what is publishing? Then how do I get published follows? Instead of summing up the answers to these questions, I’ve included an excerpt from my book, “So, You Finished your Masterpiece – Now What? A Simple Guide To Self-Publishing.” If you want a copy of the book, my contact information is below:

“Now what?” You ask yourself. You’ve just finished your masterpiece, and you have perfected it. But now, you are sitting there scratching your head wondering what to do next. This is how I felt in 2008 when I wrote my very first novel. I had no clue what to do next. I asked a few people, but no one wanted to help me. I got bits and pieces of information but nothing concrete. Instead, I encountered people who wanted to take advantage of a new author and jealous people who refused to help. My goal is to help anyone who asks.

This book helps those who want to self-publish a book, especially if you’re on a budget. This book will be a guide to give writers a starting point, to explain different types of publishing, and to provide a simple process to self-publishing. Furthermore, it will give you a step-by-step guide on how I self-published my books. Many how-to books can help you publish your masterpiece. These are just the steps that I use to publish my work.

I know that each and every one of you who reads this book will find your own unique way of doing things. My goal is to give new authors options to help them navigate through the publishing world.

Until next time – Enjoy the journey!
