How to Publish a Book

It’s only a few years ago that getting a book published usually meant approaching publishers, or trying to find a literary agent first. Publishing yourself was a minority activity. Learning how to publish a book successfully was strictly for the experts and getting into print with any semblance of professionalism meant forging close relationships with the publishing establishment. In recent years, however, the process has been transformed by businesses like The Choir Press and made it accessible to almost anyone. 


How to Get Published: First Find a Publisher


It’s widely accepted that finding a conventional publisher has never been harder or more time consuming. Increasingly, the first step, whether for fiction or the non-fiction that constitutes so much of our business, is to get an agent. As aspiring writers discover every day, this route to literary fame can prove frustrating, time consuming and, for many, ultimately fruitless. Fortunately, there’s another option if you’re wondering how to get a book published...

Or choose among self-publishing companies...

As your arrival on our website proves, it’s easier than ever to find an experienced, helpful publisher who can help you undertake your own book publication. From advice on formats and editorial support, through to support with ISBNs and printing, companies like ours can assist you with successful book production – and advise on the promotion and distribution that follows.



Book Printing Services


Although some of our books are produced and distributed in electronic formats, many authors are very keen to see their fiction or non-fiction work as a traditionally printed book. Printed book sales still exceed ebook sales by a factor of 5 to 1 and in 2016 printed books saw a rise in their share of the market. Understanding how best to approach printing is inextricably linked with knowing how to get your book published. As you’d expect if you are self-publishing a book, we can advise you on the various printing (and ebook) options available to you – whether you choose a long print run or enjoy the cost advantages of digital short run printing. We’ll also advise on the relationship between book printing costs and the cost of distribution for your circumstances.
