How does one go about getting published?
Nov 04, 2020
So, as suggested Kindle KDP is often the first move. I have worked with many writers over the years doing edit work, and from the many conversations I have learned to be careful of lesser know publishers who will reach out directly to you through social media. If all they can do for you is publish your book on Amazon, well that isn't worth anything. Many of the younger writers get taken advantage of because the writer is just excited to be "published" and can lose the rights to their own work or lose money in the process. Being published is just a business arrangement. You need to look at what the publisher is bringing to the table. Some of them will also straight up ask you for money as well to be published by them.
