More Ideas on Getting Published

Like many authors or people who work in publishing, I get a constant stream of emails asking if I would consider helping them (or their friend/spouse/child/relative/coworker) get published.  Because of my busy schedule,  I wrote an earlier post that was meant to give people who write non-fiction books ideas on how to move forward (HERE), and I generally let people who contact me about fiction or children’s books know that I don’t have experience in those areas.  Recently I came across author Ken Follett‘s website, and on it he has a section called “Masterclass” which gives generously extensive advice on writing a novel.  (Check out his website HERE).  At the end of the Masterclass, he has some ideas about getting published which I thought were excellent — read those HERE.  I’ve never met Mr. Follett, but have enjoyed many of his books over the years — and I was heartened to see a bestselling author take the time to give solid and practical advice for writers.  Enjoy!

To Self-Publish or Not Self-Publish…

Are you thinking of self-publishing a book?  If so, check out this interesting article on self-publishing on — read it HERE.  Promoting your self-published book is vital.  I’ve seen a number of people self-publish their book expecting it to magically sell on its own, and get frustrated or angry when it doesn’t.  If you self-publish a book, keep in mind that you are responsible for getting it “out there” for people to find and read.
