Five Tips to Get From Manuscript to Published Book

  1. 1. FIVE TIPS to Get From Manuscript to Finished Book If you’re ready to finally write your book, consider these five easy steps, recommended by Author Solutions, to go from aspiring writer to published author. By Keith Ogorek
  2. 2. Picture when you would like to hold a copy of your book You could simply choose one year from now, or a date that’s important to you, like your child’s graduation or your birthday. Pick a date you’ll remember and use that motivation to achieve your goal. Think how great it will be to hand that first copy to your best friend or spouse.
  3. 3. Pick a time to write and make it your routine Determine the best time for you to write and schedule it in your daily calendar. Early in his career, famed fiction novelist Elmore Leonard would write in the early morning each day before work. Choose a time of day you know you can stick to – before long it will become routine.
  4. 4. Create a support system to help you stay on track Accountability is key. Find someone to provide encouragement as you write – it’s easier to keep on pace if you know someone else is depending on you. This could be a friend, a relative or maybe a member of a local or online writers’ group.
  5. 5. Select the best publishing option for you The search for the perfect publisher doesn’t have to wait until your manuscript is complete. “The Four Paths to Publishing,” helps authors identify the four distinct options available in the market; traditional publishing, DIY publishing, a general-contractor approach, or the utilization of a publishing package; and determine which option makes the most sense for them.
  6. 6. Celebrate your achievement! Plan your book party Your book’s complete! Now it’s time to show the world. Throw a book-launch party and schedule signings at book stores; anything to get your book out there. Thanks to the internet, there’s never been a better time to be an author. Creating a marketing platform is essential and can be as simple as starting a Blog and positioning yourself as an expert in your chosen field or interest area. Fiction or non-fiction, this approach will lend credibility to your work.
