How to Publish Your Book

How To Publish Your Book

It’s not 3000 BC.

Flatten and smack the stack of the papyrus plant, add your effort on top of that.

Your smooth & flexible, writing material is born. Accepts and retains ink even without a blur or smudge. Now, revolutionize the literary world.

Wait, WHAT?

We’re not in Ancient Egypt.

Step in this portal (O), to get back in this timeline. Whiup!

This was the way people used to craft the ancient papyrus paper, which was the method on how to write and publish your books. Successfully, the process never stopped evolving.

The development of writing has been a long process that underwent a lot of experimentation and cycles of new methods replacing the old. Different materials dominated distinct regions and eras, and clay was used heavily in the river plains of Mesopotamia. That’s where it is believed writing books was born. Then papyrus dominated the history of written documents”.

Now, you don’t even need paper sheets to publish your book. That being said we don’t have any excuse why not to write and publish nowadays, do we? Then again you wonder how to publish a book. Let’s dive into it more.

1) The form

Even though you can always choose to publish in print and print hard copies (maybe just for the mere fun of it), a recent more popular method is using the huge advantages, that expansion of existing and new technologies bring and move us closer to our goals. These platforms plus the help of a lot of Digital Publishing Agencies (few exceptionally good one), give you an opportunity to publish your book in Ebook format. By making your book digitally available you open the window and access to connect with a global, more engaged audience all across the globe. So these are the 3 ways you can publish your book considering its form:

  • Traditional method with print (hardcopies),
  • eBook Digital Publishing (grants more opportunities)
  • A mix of these two

So what’s the best approach? It depends on an individual basis. Whether you are a traditional fella or a digital skywalker you can choose or mix both approaches. We suggest the eBook publishing as a beneficial and more trendy approach in this context.

2)The way

Do I need to know Kung Fu to understand this? Of course not!

There are two ways to publish here:

  • To self-publish

You can decide to self-publish and do it on your own going for this adventurous route, but beware of dangers! (This is where knowing Martial Arts help).

To avoid being eaten alive by those crocodiles (smileys of crocodiles) we suggest to always reach out for help, when in need. There are a lot of great Digital Publishing agencies and we happen to be one. Jokes aside we love to offer you any help if necessary.

NOO, HUGE blocks of text again! WAIT, this is simple.

Let’s see how Bob the smart author-entrepreneur sees the book publishing process with its benefits down to 3 key elements: Time, Control and Profit.

Time:


Traditional publishing is often time-consuming. From accepting your offer to printing the book, can take away many months, sometimes even years.  But this doesn’t apply for Digital Publishing agencies, where the chosen option is an eBook format. Some of them (including us) let you keep all the profits minimizing costs and even offering the whole writing process for you.

That’s right, you now can be an author without a single written word by yourself.

Control:


Editors may want to change things about your book to make it more marketable. You may not be happy with someone else scribbling your dedicated work, just for the sake of a few more bucks. That’s not the case in all the digital agencies.

If your nose itch when you hear about someone else editing your manuscript, then maybe you have to go another route. You can always reach out for help from a decent Digital Publishing agency. An important key point to note here is the agencies that make YOU the center of their process, not the other way around.

Profit:
While traditional publishing can make your book look even better, covering all the costs surrounding the process of publishing your book, there is a price for that. In the end, the publishing house will keep a cut of the book’s profits. But that’s not always a bad thing nor its always the case.

Sometimes a lot of success is due to their personalized help, and they charge only for the services. That way you get to keep all of your profits to yourself – which is better considering the other options. So better choose wisely.

Finally, when the writing process is eventually complete and you decide to publish, It’s time to celebrate. You are an author, and you deserve a nice celebration.

That’s how to publish a book in the 21st century.

Benefits of Being a Author

Advantages of being a Writer


“Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria.

Wait a minute. ‘Once upon a time’ is how all the best children’s stories begin and ‘prostitute’ is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction?”

That’s how Paulo Coelho’s book “Eleven minutes” begins.

And we can’t argue, being an author is COOL.

And not only that…

This excerpt is the beginning paragraph taken from the famous Coelho’s bestseller – Eleven Minutes. It shows a creativity an author can foretake to make his idea stick, into readers minds. Make them love his product, remember the author, and spontaneously building the credibility of expertise in our minds. Just as this book did with me – I still remember Eleven Minutes, and its infamous beginning even though I’ve read it more than ten years ago. Unlike hundreds of other read books that didn’t leave me with significant emotion feeling wonderful, nor a pleasant thing that could make them stick into my memories.

Relax, we can learn this too.

Even though authoring a book and be on the niche is a big investment in time, effort, and money, in the end, it has a lot of benefits. With the writing, editing, proofreading, design and production work required to publish a book, it can take years before it’s done, and if you can’t write yourself, hiring ghostwriter may cost you a car. The struggle pays off!

Becoming an author is worth it, even when it takes years and costs thousands!

Because writing a book is such a big project, people often dream about doing it but don’t actually get it done because they get stuck along the way. We strive to change that and that’s why at The Books Factory we love to offer any help necessary.

Fun facts:

  • 96% said having a book positively influenced their business;
  • 96% generated more clients;
  • 94% generated more leads;
  • 87% attracted a more desirable client base;

These statistics are from a few years ago, but they’re still pretty fantastic!

1)Spread the word

Writing a book is one of the best ways to share your story and experience with the world. It allows you to reach audiences unlimited by geographic and economic status. There are other ways to do this too, but a book has more tremendous value because it’s an object and extension of oneself.

2)Help Others

Your skills and expertise may seem familiar and usual with yourself since you’re accommodated with them but to others, they may be like a treasury. That’s why it’s a good thing to share them in a book, and help others along the way. Becoming an author allows you to reach and help far more people than you could reach in real person.

3)Become an Expert

You may have heard the saying “your goals aren’t goals until you write them down on paper”. It’s similar to books. Even if you know what you are talking about until you’ve written about it, it’s harder for other people to understand you properly. So just the process of writing a book adds to your expertise a lot!

Becoming an author let others know you’re the expert!

4)Passive Income from Royalties

If we see book writing from the lengths of your income strategy, a book is something you write once and can make money from as long as you keep it in print. Of course, books don’t sell if you don’t market and promote them.

Don’t worry, we can help you with that At The Books Factory.

5)Get Publicity and Media Attention

Getting media attention may be a difficult task, whether is just for trying to share your story or try to get your business mentioned somewhere. A book is like a lead magnet, and a decent benefit of you being an Author.

Journalists are always looking for experts to interview, and that’s your chance to be reviewed in newspapers and magazines too. Any invitations for a radio or television show? With a book, you’ll have for sure!

6)Unexpected Opportunities

Perhaps the best benefit of becoming an author, according to us at The Books Factory! When you become an author, you’ll never know who will read it and what opportunities and coincidences it may unfold. You could be delivering the next TED Talk or even more.

Become an Author, and get the tons of advantages now!
