If you are a writer of books and want to be published, there are a few time-tested ways to get the job done. You can send query letters to publishers and wait for a response (a frustratingly slow process unless you’re a well-known author); get a literary agent to represent you (difficult if you’re not well known); self-publish through a company like www.lulu.com (can be expensive if you print in large quantities); or start your own publishing house (very challenging unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth).
In general, as a budding author yet to be published you’d be smart to check with your local chamber of commerce to see if there are any publishers in your local community with whom you can meet. In lieu of that, get your hands on a copy of the 2015 Writer's Market Deluxe Edition: The Most Trusted Guide To Getting Published edited by Robert Lee Brewer and try to see which publishers favour the subject area you’ve written about (e.g., sports – check out publishers who publish sports books). Be sure to follow their submission guidelines and then send a small sample of your work.
If you’re lucky enough to have a publisher bite, make sure you receive a contract where you agree to the advance and subsequent royalties you are offered.
To get a book published is usually an exercise in perseverance and patience. You’ll need to have lots of both and a well-written and edited manuscript to feel the special exhilaration that comes with being able to say “I’m a published author”.
