How do I publish my story?

 

Just like most things in life today, publishing a story has options. You can self-publish or find a publisher interested in publishing your manuscript. You can do everything in a digital format, you can offer print, or you can do both.

Cost is likely to dictate your options. Digital publishing is going to be the least expensive, and most times it is free. You can go with print on demand, which is when a book is printed after it’s sold. Ordering single books is more costly per item when you go this way but you’re not going to end up with storing a lot of stock.

A writer has a certain amount of time to make the sale. It makes sense for a publisher or distributor to pull non-selling books from their shelves. The author usually wants to rescue the unsold books. There’s generally a cost involved to get your books back.

Considerations to look at:

  • What is your purpose for writing, and who is your market?
  • Do you want to spend money? Determine your capacity.
  • Spend time researching options. Do your due diligence and be educated about what a type of publishing means. Does it fit your criteria?
  • Most importantly – listen to your gut. Your heart and soul is in your story.
