BY PETER O'CONNOR

Book publishing consultant, Oxford, England.

"Authors come to me from all over the world for one reason. I believe every author deserves to see their book in print - without waiting years for a publishing deal. And without rejection by agents.

Guiding you through the process of publishing, I help you avoid the mistakes and pitfalls, so you can finally publish your book"

Dear Author,


If you want to get your book published, without stress, without needing a publishing deal, and without giving away your books rights, this may be the most important letter you'll ever read.


Here's why:

Book publishing has changed...

More and more people, like you, want to publish a book, but it’s become almost impossible to get a book deal.


In fact, the average first-time author now spends three years struggling to get a publishing deal...


  • Three years of writing proposal after proposal.
  • Three years of watching and waiting to see if 'this time they'll say yes'.
  • Three years of crippling rejection letters.

And at the end of it all, you may have nothing to show for your effort and struggles. 


Frustrating, isn't it? It's becoming clear...

Traditional publishers are no longer interested in signing up first-time authors...

Furthermore, right now, in these uncertain times, they're not taking any chances on unknown authors. They only want “sure things” - authors with large social media followings.


Cookery books and celebrity memoirs dominate the shelves of book stores. Choice is being reduced and lesser-known authors are getting sidelined.


In fact, big publishers now reject the majority of new authors they see - if you can persuade them to meet with you in the first place, that is.

So you may be wondering...

If you want your story or memoir published, and you’re not famous... and you don’t have a large following... and you don't have three years to wait... where does this leave you?

 

Or, if you want to publish your book now, without chasing agents or facing rejection after rejection, what do you do?

 

If you want to see your words in a real “hold-in-your-hand” book, how do you get it done without having to beg for a publishing deal?

 

Or perhaps you simply want a book to show your family, and leave a legacy with your writing. So what choices do you have? Well...


The good news is - there is another way...


Publish it yourself.

 

But you may be thinking:

"Publishing a book on my own sounds like a lots of work. How will I figure it all out?"

And you're right. It does take a lot of hard work. Plus you must know exactly what to do, how to do it, and in what order.


In fact, just look at the long list of things you need to get perfect so you can publish your book (and this is not everything):


  • Finishing my manuscript. 
  • Countless rounds of editing.
  • Figuring out complex formatting rules so the pages look good in paperback and all the different digital formats.
  • Then there's the question: Do I need to copyright my book, and if I do want to, how do I go about it? It sounds so complex and confusing.
  • Then there’s learning how to get the best cover design. And how to find a designer I can trust.
  • Then there’s figuring out how to write the blurb.
  • Should I use an author photo? And if so, can I use one of my own or do I need to hire a photographer?


  • Then there's writing an appropriate bio.
  • Learning what an ISBN is, whether I need to get one, and where to buy one. 
  • Figuring out what files and formats I need.
  • Navigating the myriad of confusing choices on how to actually publish my book. 
  • How do I upload my book to Amazon and all the other platforms?
  • What price to offer my book at? 
  • Do I use a glossy or matte finish? 
  • Should I publish an ebook only or a paperback too?
  • How do I get people to review my book?” 

And so on and so on.

 

The truth is, it is hard work.

But it’s very achievable if you know the exact steps to take.


Your words deserve to be published.

Peter O'Connor

Book publishing consultant,

Publishing is broken. 

Traditional publishers require authors to write proposals, give up most of their royalties, sign away their book rights, and hand over creative control.


And if you try to self-publish, you must become a master of everything! From editing to formatting, cover design to ISBN's, layout to copyrighting. You must learn all the platforms. Know how to promote and market your book. And be a tech wizard - all while trying to finish writing your book. It's enough to make anyone crazy!
