One of the hardest things to do having written your book is to get it published.
This can be hugely disappointing after you have spent maybe months or even years writing your book. What can you do to get your book into the hands of readers?
How to get published
There are many publishers that claim to guarantee your book will be published. However you will soon find that they will publish your book because you will pay for it to be published. This may be little more than vanity publishing as once your book is in print you will receive the copies and that will be the end of the matter as far as this type of publisher is concerned.
With the Internet and the explosion of books being read online why not try initially selling your book as an eBook? If sales go well you may then find a publisher willing to take on your book and publish it in paper form in the traditional way.
Find help to promote your book
As a new author you will need a helping hand to attract publicity for your book. If you develop good contacts with bloggers and other website owners you may find a willingness to promote your book for you. Using Twitter too can be a powerful tool in letting people know about your book. Such publicity can attract the attention of publishers, journalists as well as the readers that you want.
I am pleased to recommend a book from children’s author Tessa Glisson who has just published her first story in eBook form. Tessa has beautifully illustrated this book Tai and the Tamarin Dudes which is an exciting story for young children. The book is selling for instant download at just £2.99 and can be printed.

If you are a publisher and would like to turn this book into printed form you can contact Tessa through her website.
