Jinghong Song - How To Get A Book Published

Jinghong Song has been lucky enough to have many books published during his career as a writer. Some of his most successful are life coaching books that are focused on the topic of finance. If you are an aspiring writer who wants to get a book published, this information can help.

Create a Manuscript
If you are going to send your book off to publishers, you need to have a manuscript. There are certain guidelines that you should follow when creating your manuscript. Make sure you proofread and save your manuscript in the proper format. Some publishers will only accept printed manuscripts and others will accept them via email or other electronic methods.

Find An Agent
Many publishers do not accept manuscripts or submissions from writers directly. They only accept them from agents. Before you can submit your book to be published you will need to find an agent who will do so on your behalf. You can send out query letters to the agents that interest you and explain the purpose of your book as well as the storyline and why you feel it should be published. If an agent is interested in your book, they will contact you and help you submit your idea or manuscript to a publisher.

Create A Proposal

Many publishers like to see proposals before they decide if they are going to publish a book or not. You should create a proposal that explains what the book is about, names the intended audience, compares your book to other published books, and explains how you will market the book if it is published. Many publishers also like to see an outline of the book so they have a better understanding of what the book will be about and who it may interest.

Be Patient
Getting a book published isn’t easy and the process is not a fast one. You may be turned down by many agents and publishers along the way and you will need to have the confidence and determination to keep sending out your query letters and proposals to agents and publishers. In the end, your patience will pay off.

If you aren’t having any luck getting a book published or want to have one published quickly, you can always self-publish. When you choose to self-publish a book you have to handle the cost of printing and marketing. It can sometimes be more difficult to self-publish than to wait and be published by another company.

Jinghong Song enjoys writing about finance and other topics. He has also had a romance novel published and is hoping to write some fiction books in the near future. If you are hoping to get a book published these above tips can help.
