You’ve got an idea in your head that sounds like the perfect story. And, before you know it, you’ve put pen to paper, downed gallons of coffee over a ridiculous amount of time, and created a world you hope everyone else will want to live in for a while. But, getting your book in people’s hands is a taller order than the boujee-est latte at Starbucks. And, while there are many routes to publishing, you’ve chosen the more traditional route—submitting your manuscript to publishers. Seems easy enough, right? Riiiiiight. If your google search on publishing doesn’t give you a little anxiety, then you’ve got nerves of steel. Either way, EWR is here to help.
We hope the articles and links we’ve provided settle your questions and get you started in the right direction. While we’ve got plenty of new content on its way, here are just a few subjects we’ll cover to take you from manuscript to publisher:
- The benefits of using beta readers
- Dealing with feedback
- The benefits of editing services
- Why you might need a literary agent
- Big Pub vs Small Pub
- The query process
- Pitch contest and writing conference tips
- Agent interviews and signing
- How to build your brand as an author
- Working with publishers (contract to release day)
Getting your dreams off the ground is a lot of work, we know. But, we believe in writers, and we’re excited you’ve chosen us as a resource to turn your story into something the entire world can enjoy. So, make another cup of coffee, let us help you, and don’t forget to tell us about your journey along the way. Leave us a comment or share an article. And let us know if there’s any other content you’d like to see from us in this ever-changing industry. #NeverStopWriting
