Making Your Book Happen
Your book won't suddenly appear on the shelves in your local store—it requires proactive engagement to create and then raise awareness, so you should get down to work as soon as possible.
The are a few simple steps to take you from someone with a broad concept idea to being the author of a book that people are talking about:
- The first step is to write the book.
- Having finished the book, it needs to be published. If you already have a contract with a publisher, then this needs no further consideration. However, if you have yet to enter into a contract with a publisher, there are two main options—find a publisher or self-publish the book yourself (which is not nearly as daunting as it seems).
- After publishing, the book then needs to be marketed. Marketing a book is a very different process from selling (say) washing powder.
A ghostwriter with experience of the publishing process will lead you through these stages and ensure that the book is as successful as it can be.
