Featured article: How to get a book published.

If you are interested in getting published you really need a cast-iron determination. Even the best writers have had to deal with frequent rejections from literary agents and publishers, often over many years. It's a pipe-dream to think you can be published without being rejected. It's part of the course. So grit your teeth and set your eyes firmly on your goal.

If your work looks amauterish, literary agents and publishers will never give it serious consideration. The basic rules of thumb are to make sure you use size 12 Times New Roman font and double-space your manuscript. But there's more to it than that. If you really want to impress a literary agent or a publisher, and you really want to get published, take submissions seriously. At Addison & Cole we can provide a specialist consultant to look over your submission in advance and point out its strengths and weaknesses. This can be extremely valuable. Visit our services and fees for more information.

Why self publish?

Self publishing is not what is used to be. Several years ago it was referred to in disparaging terms as 'vanity publishing', and seen as more of an embarrassment than an achievement. These days, however, self publishing is becoming more and more common. There are many books which may appeal to niche markets or smaller demographics that the mainstream publishing houses are no longer interested in. Authors of such manuscripts often turn to self publishing to get their work out into the marketplace. And they can keep 100% of the profits, too.
