    How to Get Your Book Published by Jane Friedman

    Are you looking to follow the traditional publishing route? You may find this article by Jane Friedman of interest.

    If you want to get your book published, you have more choices than ever to accomplish your goal, and the path can be confusing if you’re new to the publishing industry. This post lays out the process in the simplest terms possible.There are three primary paths to getting published:

    1. Land a traditional publisher who will offer you a book contract. This is “the dream” or what most writers imagine when they think about getting published.
    2. Hire a service to help you publish your book. There are many types of publishing services out there, some cheap and some expensive. But the main thing they have in common is that they charge you to publish.
    3. Self-publish. This is where you act as the publisher, and hire the help you need to publish and sell your work, generally through Amazon and other major retailers.

    This post focuses on getting a traditional publisher.

    In a traditional publishing arrangement, the publisher pays you for the right to publish your work. Traditional publishers assume all costs and pay you an advance and royalties. You must persuade them to accept your work by delivering an effective pitch or manuscript.
    If you’re not sure if you should traditionally publish or self-publish, here’s how to make a decision.
    4 steps to getting a book published

    Getting your book traditionally published is a step-by-step process of:

    1. Determining your genre or category of work.
    2. Finding appropriate agents or publishers for your work.
    3. Preparing your submissions materials (a query letter, usually).
    4. Submitting your materials to agents or editors.
