How to publish a book
Once, getting a book published usually meant approaching publishers, maybe even getting 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 accessible to almost anyone.
How to get a book 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
While books are increasingly produced and distributed in electronic formats, many authors are keen to see their fiction or non-fiction work as a traditionally printed book. 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 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.
Helpful, personal service
One of the benefits of contacting The Choir Press is the friendly, personal service you’ll enjoy from first contact to delivery of your first – or millionth – book. If you’re frustrated by your efforts to approach publishers and agents, or if they haven’t delivered the response you wanted, we’ll give you objective advice on how to publish a book yourself. Whether you’ve written about travel, biography or family history, or penned a novel, it’s not as hard as you might imagine, especially if you really believe in your book, have a clear idea of your publishing objectives and are prepared to work closely with your book production partner.
