If you’re thinking about publishing your own book, I’ve got some great information for you!
There’s a website called “Book Country” that will allow you to upload your book so members of their community can review it and provide constructive evaluation. You can also read the works of other aspiring authors and provide comments of your own! Pretty cool!
Recently Book Country announced they will now publish manuscripts posted on their website turning them into real ebooks, paper books, or both. Please “click here” to read more. There’s no doubt they’ve got the ability to publish… they’re actually a subsidiary of Penguin Group publishing company. This really sounds like a good deal! Get your book reviewed for free, make appropriate changes, and submit it for publishing (for a fee of course). It’s like a one-stop-shop for authors!
I’ve got some books rattling around in my head, but I haven’t yet set them to paper. I’ve been reading about how to publish, however I’m not familiar with the actual nuts and bolts of the process. So imagine my pleasant surprise when I stumbled across a blog titled, “A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing”
“A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing” is the creation of the well known author, Joe Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn). While I was looking through all the posts in Joe’s blog, I came upon one that speaks directly about Book Country’s offer to publish material uploaded to their site… Joe’s comments were truly enlightening! I’m not going to paraphrase what he wrote… You’ve got to read it for yourself! Please “click here” to go there!
While you’re on “A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing,” please spend some time reading through the posts. Many are posted by guests offering valuable information and insight into the publishing industry. I’ve bookmarked Joe’s Blog and I’ll be going back to read it all!
Happy Thanksgiving to all! This is my favorite time of the year!
